This weekend was full of two of my favorite things: babies and dogs. Well, not exactly babies. Baby showers. But close enough.
The weekend started Friday after work. I headed over to mom’s house to set up for a baby shower I was hosting for a fellow Zumba instructor. It was a fun evening celebrating Miranda and baby Elaina. (and y’all….that punch I created was FANTASTIC. Recipe coming this week!).
It was bumblebee themed…so lots of yellow. Glad I have lots of Fiestaware to pick from. 🙂
Saturday we were pretty lazy during the day. A little housework, a lot of DVR catching up. We actually had a little crazy happen at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning.
For some reason, we were both awake…so Tyler went to the bathroom and I got up to get some water. With all the commotion, Mikey wanted outside. Well, I spotted him rolling in the wet grass and hollered at him to stop. Then all of a sudden, he runs under our porch! He NEVER does that. And while I open the door to yell at him to come in, I smell SKUNK. There must have been a skunk under the porch and he ran in after it. Thankfully, he wasn’t directly sprayed. After a long bath (using every internet idea- dawn soap, peroxide, baking soda and vinegar) he came clean and we were back in bed by 4:30 a.m. ha!
Later Saturday, our groomer brought over a new friend. This is Frisbee. He was thrown from a car in town (I know…who does that to a dog?!). He will be up for adoption soon after he is neutered. I FELL IN LOVE with this little guy from her pictures…and I wondered if he and Mikey could get along. Mikey has never really liked other dogs, but for some reason, he’s taken to this guy better than expected. They have spells of love and hate. Mikey is an aggressive dog, so I doubt (if we keep him) that they will ever be snuggle buddies. But they are playing together, and for the most part, Mikey is tolerating him. ha! I think a playmate would be GREAT for him. So we are fostering him until after his neuter. We love the little guy…but there a few behaviors that make him a bit incompatible for our family- like marking everywhere, and barking a lot….so I’m hoping neutering him will help with that.
But I mean, they were ok in my lap together….so they could definitely be brothers. 🙂
If we keep him, we will rename him. I don’t love Frisbee. It reminds me of his sad past. He’s leaning toward being my dog (which is fine because Mikey is Tyler’s dog)…and I want to give him a musical name. I tried Hanson…ad Tyler isn’t having that. ha!
So I’m thinking either Boq or Pippin. Boq is a munchin/the tin man from the musical Wicked…and since this pup is so little…he’s a little munchkin. Or Pippin. Pippin is a musical about a young man searching for significance….and after this little guy’s story, I think that fits too. And we’d call him Pip, like pip squeak. 🙂
So more on him later. We should have a neuter appointment set today so hopefully we can figure out if he’s 100% right for us or not.
How was your weekend?
Do you have more than one dog? How do they get along?
