Kismet

My Grandma Held used to have a stack of old board games in her basement. The one I remember the most was one called "Kismet." I don't think we ever found the directions or even played it although it reminded me of Yahtzee. But what I do recall is that someone once told me that kismet means: fate or destiny.

Kismet is what I would call the way in which we suddenly have found ourselves as dog owners once again! Introducing... Crosby, formerly known as Kirby. A childhood friend who read about our failed dog rescue attempts generously contacted us about him. It seems that they have two puppies, and have been contemplating a change in lifestyle. Maybe we would be helping each other out? It didn't take much of a discussion on our part, Crosby is exactly what we had been looking for. He is definitely a busy little guy, but we happen to have a busy oldest boy who took to him instantly and the two of them have been partners in crime all weekend long.

So while the boys have been getting used to all things puppy, I have felt my energy drain.  My color has faded and I know my previously low blood counts, have plummeted once again.  I spent Sunday mostly in bed and hope to regain some strength for the upcoming week.  Its just me and this little cutie all day and I am so gonna need to be on top of my game!

  2. Awww! Soo cute. I am sure he will love to keep you company all day.
    Give him lots of chewies and let him out right away as soon as he wakes from a nap. He will train in max 3 days if its done right. lol

  4. Crosby is so cute! A puppy full of energy is the perfect companion for a boy full of energy. They will be best friends for a long time! A pet quickly becomes a member of the family and you'll find it hard to remember when he wasn't there.

    I remember my Dad having the same problem. He could barely walk. But once he got an IV (I forgot what they gave him), he was like a new person once again.

    Praying for you, praying for strength, my friend. Hugs!

  6. oh my--how adorable! that picture of him and your son--you could forgive that doggie face almost anything!

    hope the day has gone smoothly. don't forget that him spending most of the day in his crate is NOT a bad thing AT ALL. it helps him know his boundaries, and it helps you not have to clean up puppy messes all day. he needs to know he has a safe place to retreat to, and you want the kennel/crate to be that place. have fun!

  10. Oh my, what a cutie. As a new puppy owner on this side of the river, I know what energy a puppy brings to a household, and also how much it can drain. So I do hope, dear friend, that you have help in all things puppy. No doubt you do the minute school lets our. He really is an adorable little guy (he won't be little for long, I'm thinking). My prayers for you will increase; thanks for the honest updates so I can be more specific. XXOO...Roxane
