it's not the woman this time

Okay, when those years of having more children just pass on by...someone in the relationship is bound to become an obsessive, nut, maniac! It ain't me.

We have had Max, our Dalmation Basset mix, since the latter part of last year (he was so much more smaller than now-yikes!). He is really big and so heavy...



...and Polo (our snowball), just a little pup too at the time---I turned him down to our neighbor, who a day later found Gera alone walking in the house. Polo became ours about 3 mos. after we adopted Max. Gera is a sucker!! Then, last night, Gera's brother calls and says guess what...?



And here you have it folks...this cute little adorable little pure baby Basset who is in no way scared of Max-the-big-bully and who challenges Polo in barking and play biting. I'm horrified when he steps on his own ears, but I think he's supposed to do that. They are almost as long as his little body. The interesting part is we see alot of Max's Basset side in this little one. His butt is the cutest thing - when he's walking.





We're still working on a name for the little guy and thankfully, my mom is taking Polo (yeah, he's the step-child, but will get lots and lots of even bigger puppy love from her). She wanted him from Day 3.

Anyhow, EGAD! House turned kennel! My plants: gone. The carpet: destroyed. Thankfully, there's lots of playing room inside and out. We're open for names. I said Barney, Duke...Gera said Chulo, and something else that is not so challenging in English or Spanish. Suggestions appreciated.

Lovely creatures. A friend of mine has a dog with conspicuous ears called "Yoda". Maybe something related to the ears?

last weekend we had 3 dogs hanging out at our house and I remarked to feagin how nice it was and how I understand why people love having a pack of dogs about - but with a house of elderly cats a pack of dogs 24/7 is not in our future.

what sweet dogs!!!!! I love susan's idea - yoda is a great name and something to live up to!

oops! major correction...Smokey is a hush puppy, not a basset. We were close though.
