We added to our family yesterday.
Lexy has been asking for an inside dog for a very long time. We decided that for her birthday we would look into getting her one. I've been talking with a woman from a nearby town for about a week about a little guy that she was trying to find a home for and yesterday since the girls were out of school, we went to meet and bring Rex (Rexy) home. Lexy was SO excited, she couldn't stop talking about him :-)
He's a yorkie mix and so far has been a pretty good dog. We do have to watch to make sure he doesn't mess with Lexy's allergies but so far so good. He's not a puppy so we're not having to deal with chewing or extreme hyperness and he's house trained (or at least mostly, he had an accident this morning).
He definitely thinks he's bigger than he is! He was barking at two huge dogs that were in the neighborhood when I took him out to potty this morning. But he was a big baby last night and I had to sleep on the couch with him down on the floor beside me.
We'll see how this goes...
