Hello, and Happy 2009! Boy have I been unmotivated! The year started with my old kitty, Balthasar, slowly deteriorating. He finally passed away later in January. I had him for 15 years, and his passing was really rough on me.
Romeo, my other kitty, got so lonely I decided to get a new pet. This time, I chose a four month old puppy, figuring he'd eventually enjoy playing with her and I'd finally get some much-needed exercise while taking her for frequent walks. Well, I'm getting lots of exercise, but Romeo isn't particularly keen yet on his new sister, Juliet. I got her at the Palo Alto Animal Services shelter in Palo Alto, CA. They believe she's Pomeranian/Chihuahua/Terrier. Does that make her a Pomchiter? Heehee! She currently weighs around 5 pounds and is expected to grow to somewhere around 10 or 15 pounds. Here are a few pics of my new baby. She's brought so much joy to my life!
If anyone has any suggestions for house-training a puppy, I'm all ears! (She shreds Wee-Wee pads)
