Here's the PUPPY!!


This is Toby Wolfhound, cute as he can be. He is every bit a pet; if you know wolfhounds you will guess that at the very least his ears are not his fortune, but look at his cute face.
He is doing well. We (all three dogs and I) mowed half the back yard. I'd been worried Toby would spook at the mower, but no. He was initially taken aback by the noise, but soon decided, puppy-wise, to use the mower as an excuse to run. He'd chase after it, and then turn and run away. If I stopped and called him to check on him, he'd run over with wagging tail, all happy. He likes the mower. Who'd have thought.
He's now met three neighbors, and this morning wanted a longer walk, and seems shy but game. I think he'll do a good job at what puppies do best: making things better.
Other news: I applied for a weekend/on call chaplain position--the HR person just called to say they hope to have a decision in another week. It has dragged on for some time and I don't feel all that confident. But while we were mowing I realized that if they really HATED me they wouldn't bother to keep me in the loop. Perhaps. Maybe that's not true, but don't tell me. I need to keep some hope.

It's wonderful to imagine your smiling big puppy running after the lawn mower. Remember nothing has been decided yet, so stay hopeful!

Oh wonderful! We lost our little Misty in June 2006, and on July 28, 2006 our second Misty came to us. She fills the emptiness felt when Misty died, and Misty 11 just turned one year old on May 19.

I probably know what you are feeling with the arrival of your new little and furry companion.

All love to you both.
