Everything Changes...everything changes.....

A while back I posted about my new baby.......I was very excited.

Well, I couldn't pick him up when I wanted to and now the breeder is kinda "playin" me. So I just got a call from a friend. She has in her possession a Boston Terrier puppy. 4 weeks old. I can pick him up in 2 weeks.

In case you aren't familiar with them....Here is a picture. No, this is not THE one, but you get the idea.

The only dogs I've ever raised were Bostons. I love the smooshed in faces. They are so ugly they're cute. And they make GREAT companions. I just couldn't afford the $700. This One Is Free!!!!

And there is no changing of the minds. I don't have to drive 10 hours to pick him up. I finally will have a "Mac".

I'm a little disappointed, I really loved the idea of the Shitpoo (as my friend calls it) but........this works. I know Bostons, I understand them.

So.....finally. 2 weeks from today I get the puppy. I have "babysitters" lined up for the over night trip next month. This gives me a chance to get this territory at work rearranged so that I'm home more. Yeah - this may be the "out" I was looking for. I HAVE to say no....can't leave the puppy alone to long - and yes, that is an excuse that is used OFTEN where I work, believe it or not.

OK - I've got to get out the door. Just thought I'd offer up a "puppy update".

I just love little puppies!! Especially when other people have to clean up after them!

Please post tons of puppy pictures so I can live vicariously!

This sounds IDEAL for you. Free is good... short hair is great... (think of all the time you won't spend grooming!). I told you, when it's the right one, the dog will come to you.

I think the boston terrier is cuter than the shitpoo. Puppy pictures would be great! Free is Great! Congratulations!

Great choice getting a Boston Terrier!

He may not be as cute as my Jasper but you're still getting a great dog.
What's his name?

I love puppies and I have always wanted a Boston. So jealous. Of course, my Princess isn't....

Yes - you just let your boss know you have a male waiting for you at home and you can't stay late anymore. Have to take care of his every need...Yeah, it does sound just like a husband!

Like Caltechgirl, I've always wanted a Boston. They're adorable! Can't wait to see pictures.
