Next weekend I am going to pick up this sweet-faced pup to give Conner some companionship and a wake-up call.
Conner needs someone to play with when I am not there with him and I think this rescue pup will do the trick.
It all started with the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show and those Pedigree commercials. You know, the ones that talk about how shelter dogs are the ones with stories to tell and how you should adopt one right away. That's right, I am just the kind of sentimental fool those commercials were designed for.
Well, I started looking on Petfinders to see what schnauzers were available around here. There was a schnauzer mix puppy-- Kippy, listed. He is in Bristol, VA and after having gone through the process for adoption, I am going to fetch him home next weekend.
I won't know for sure how old or big he is until I see him and check all that out. I have found out that Welsh Terriers are supposed to be 20 pounds max and Conner (a Mini Schnauzer) has been 18 pounds for the last 4 years. Already this puppy is 18 pounds and only about 4 months old, so I am guessing the Schnauzer he is mixed with isn't a Mini.
Lord, help me, what if he is mixed with a Giant? I am gonna have to give up my grandparents' bed and get a king-sized one.
Anyway, spring is coming and once I get over this bronchitis I am going to have my hands full with new puppy-itis.
