Much excitement at our house

We have purchased a puppy, the cutest wee puppy in the world. I know you think your puppy is cute, but you haven't seen ours.*

A's reaction: she's sewing the dog a bed. And a blanket. When confronted with the fact that her brother also wants to provide the dog a blanket:

"Well, fine. But *I* get to sew all its clothes!"

B's reaction: (after the hooting and hollering stopped, the next day, waiting for the puppy to arrive on a plane from B.C.**)

"How big will it be?"
"If the puppy is born in BC, will it cheer for the Vancouver Canucks, or the Calgary Flames, or the Edmonton Oilers?"


*don't read this post until Friday, because Toopka is arriving Friday, and we don't want to get out of our minds with excitement before she's actually here.

**you'd be surprised how cheaply you can ship a puppy. This breeder had such reasonable prices that it was cheaper to buy the puppy there and have her shipped than it was to buy one locally

Yeah, I like the BOBHOPE reference too. Chuckle.

Congrats on the new addition to the family! Seems you had a harder time keeping this one a secret than B!
