    I'm a BIG failure

    Indeed I am. "Why"??? - you ask. Well I will give you 3 guesses. Just a hint - it has something to do with the statement I made where I said I was done being a pet-mom. And just in case you haven't figured it out yet - I am happy to say I have adopted a new little fur kid.

    I sure wasn't looking for one and had absolutely no intention of getting another dog. I accidentally stumbled across this one while I was looking for the address of a cat rescue in town, so I could take the smaller pet beds over there. I'll elaborate later, but Myndi and Sparky gave me the okay (seriously) and I'll elaborate on that one later too.

    But I just had to make a brief appearance here and tell you all of my failure. It's another Pom, about the same size as Myndi, a little boy who will be 4 years old on Oct 25th, neutered and microchipped, and a real little sweetheart of a love bug and loves giving kisses. His coloring is brindle - so pretty and I had never seen a brindle Pom before, and his name is Wolfy. That's always been his name and I don't want to confuse him with a new one, so I'll keep it. He's not the least bit strange or standoffish, and he's following me around with my every move! He's a real bright and happy and spunky little guy and he loves to do zoomies! I picked him up this morning and already he's settling in like he's always lived here.

    Anyway - I was just busting and I couldn't keep silent on this one. I'll get some pictures sometime over the weekend and get them posted, so that you can all see the newest Pom member of the PT Community.

    Thanks, Barry

    That's the best news I've heard since you lost Myndi--- congratulations Pom. Of course we all want to hear the whole story but I know Myndi and Sparky had something to do with that gift. And a special gift it is-----guess they knew you couldn't be without at least one little fuzzbutz following on your heels.
    Now all we need are pictures, can't wait to see little Wolfy---that's a rather cute name-- different at least. I've never seen a brindle myself, had no clue that colour existed in poms. So anxious to see the little guy.

    YAY! Welcome, Wolfy!

    Myndi and Sparky gave me the okay.
    Thanks, Myndi and Sparky! You knew your mom needed another Fuzzbutt to love. I can't wait to see pictures and learn what a brindle Pom looks like!
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    He should be fine. I got him at the county SPCA and he was socializing with other dogs when I met him. I don't know if he was ever with cats much or at all, but he takes a wide berth around my son's 2 cats. It's almost like he's afraid of them.

    I knew this would happen, you are soooo not a failure! Welcome to Pet Talk, Wolfy! And we love your name - maybe he will have an affinity for Mozart!

    Woohoo! I am so glad you are a failure. This is the best kind.
    I also love the name and can't wait to see pix and hear the story.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    This IS wonderful news! I'm so happy for you, and Wolfy! I hope I get to meet him! I've never seen a brindle Pom either but that coloration is a favorite.
