I am so excited that I can barely type. We went to PetSmart yesterday to get wild birdseed. As we walked in the door we saw the local humane society was there with four of their dogs. I glanced at the dogs and oh my goodness, there was my new little buddy.

She is three years old and her name is Molly. She’s a west highland white terrier or a “Westie”. She’s spayed and housebroken. She’s also crate trained. She fell in love with me and the feeling was mutual. We filled out the application and hopefully she will be here with me tonight. I will have pictures later this week. She needs a trip to the groomer to get her all clean and pretty.

She was left at the humane society because she belonged to an older woman who was having to move in with her daughter and her son in law. The son in law wouldn’t allow this lady to bring her little dog along, so Molly ended up without a home. She’s only been at the shelter a few days so she hasn’t learned any bad habits.

I’m crying and laughing as I write this. I’m just thinking about the holidays with Mr. Pop, Fred the Cat, Molly and me. This is going to be fun!

That's such great news! I like Jazz's idea, if you can let the woman know that Molly has found such a good home. Yay Molly! Yay for the Pop family!

Interesting, a new family member! My last three blackdogs were on borrowed time when I adopted them, the only one left now is Woof, Chop and Rowd wait for us in the upper Owens Valley where the grass is green, the sky is blue, the river is clear and full of trout.

Yay! I am so excited for Molly and the entire Pop family! If you haven't had terriers before, Pop, you are in for a treat. They have the goofiest personalities on the planet. They definitely know how to play!

Love from Via and Angus and Bramble the Airedales. Terriers Rule!
