Well, three, if you count Dexter.

Yes, Eliza got adopted today.  I'm thrilled. 

When I went up to Petco to pick the puppies up, I was very disheartened to see that all four were still in the pen.  I had hoped to see SOMEONE finally being adopted.  I also couldn't understand why Freddie, whose portrait on Petfinder, is the cutest of the three...

...hadn't had any inquiries at all.

I went off to do some shopping (really, just an excuse to listen to my audio book, which is only 3 hours from being finished!) and then came home to pick up the puppies.  As I said, they were all still in the cage.

LastPupsinChair.jpg (39360 bytes)I sighed and got Higgins by the leash and started to leave when Ashley stopped me and asked me to wait a bit.  She said a couple was trying to decide between Higgins and Eliza.  So I sat there for about half an hour, having some of Ashley's birthday cake, and finally the decision had been made:  Eliza. 

I went to say goodbye to Eliza and meet her new family and it was the couple I had met with last week, who expressed an interest in both Eliza and Higgins.   Eliza was snuggled comfortably in the woman's lap, looking like she had made the switch already, though I wonder how she's going to feel at bedtime tonight!

So I packed the other three up in the car and brought them home again.  One of their siblings also got adopted today, so slowly but surely all twelve puppies are finding homes.  Maybe next week we'll be lucky again.  I want to be sure to get Higgins adopted before I have to saddle him in order to control him!

I got from Dr. G today.  They are entirely too good not to share.

Random Thoughts for the Day:

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
6. Was learning cursive really necessary?
7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
10. Bad decisions make good stories.
11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.
13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this -- ever.
15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?
16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
18. My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I respond to that?
19. I think the freezer deserves a light as well..
20. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.

Goodbye, little girl.  Have a great life!
