My MIL got a new dog.... If you call a rat on stilts a dog. LOL - just kidding it really is kinda cute once you get used to it. It is just so tiny. It's legs so spindly. It is a minature Italian Greyhound. She named her "Willow" and she is 4 months old.
We "found" her at the mall when my MIL took me shopping for my birthday. She did not get her then (she wanted to but she called my FIL and my FIL said NO) but she couldn't get this poor doggie off her mind. So two days later she called and it was still there so my MIL talked my FIL into getting her. - lol
She took my daughter Devin with her to the first vet appt., on Mon., because she thought it would be a good experience for her and it was. Devin really loves animals and like most girls her age she would love to become a vet. lol.
After which they came back here for my "birthday cake" which Devin made herself. :)
The dog was quite tired from her experience at the vets (poor baby) and slept after she throughly investigated my house. And boy when that dog sleeps she really sleeps! you can move her, kids can be kids (ie yelling and playing) and all conversations can take place and she does not so much as twitch an eye lid.
She seems to be enjoying her new life being a pampered pet.
