New family member...

After finally getting past an overwelming amount of scrutiny by the animal rescue league, The Alva's were informed that we would be getting a home visit Saturday with "Molly", the little Doxie Mrs. Alva's been pining for the last several weeks. She checked the website Friday to see what was going on after a few weeks of no news, and when she pulled up Molly's picture it read, "Adoption Pending". She immediately picked up the phone to give the rescue folks a piece of her mind for adopting out "her" dog, when the voice on the other line informed her that it was us who were getting this dog. The visit went well and she is now ours to keep.

So far so good. The little thing got wimpery when my wife took Katie to school this morning, but otherwise it's as if she has always been with us. Sunday we spent working in the yard, and Molly helped by laying like a side of beef on the warm river rock gravel and sleeping.

Amazingly, our two cats could really care less about sharing the house with this wienner dog. They'll hiss at her occasionally, but I think they were more concerned about having to share their food ration with her and once they knew that it wasn't going to be the case they said, "no big deal".

So ladies and gentlemen, I give you Molly...

I'm in love. I cannot resist the hound face. She's a total sweetie.

Who's a doodle?? Who is??? Who is??

A wuzza-wuzza. A wuzza-wuzza.

She's really something else. Rates very high on the Doodle Scale, using both European and American standards. She does not like being by herself at all, prefering to hang close to her momma. Mrs. Alva said that she wouldn't even eat her breakfast without her being in the kitchen with her. Have you ever heard of a Doxie, or any hound for that matter, NOT wanting to eat?

Katie picked out her bed (pink of course) and a skull and crossbone collar for her. I picked up a sweater with Katie's school colors for her since it was snowing here on Saturday (Katie and her fellow students are Huddleston Hounds afterall).

They'll be more pictures to come as I'm sure Mrs. Alva has more than likely already loaded up the 250 gig external hard drive I just finished installing with Molly photos.

Actually, my very own Wallace P. Doglington, III is known far and wide as the "supermodel beagle" because he is so finicky about eating.

The MagDog, on the other hand, seems like she is on a perpetual mission to eat her body weight in kibble in one sitting.

Dave,
Is Wallace P. a member of DAR - Dogs of the American Revolution?
Our cats are feline royalty, Princess Fiona Meowington and Lady Lucy Chattington (of the Atlanta Chattington's).

Wallace fought in the south under Nathaniel Greene. He earned the nickname "The Silky Eared Kid" and was revered for his courage under fire.

Molly is cute! You know what will make her even more adorable? Hats & sweaters & skirts. Little dogs are just made to be dressed up like dolls.
