Puppy Love

It's been a busy week. We are now completely out of our temporary quarters and completely in our new apartment. That's not to say that we're unpacked, to the contrary, we're still surrounded by boxes, but we've got the TV and internet set up, as well as the bed and the shower. All of the necessities. The rest of it, we're unpacking slowly.

We spent days assembling Ikea furniture and waiting for deliveries and the cable guy, now we're down to going through boxes. We've made a few trips to Goodwill with the car full of boxes and there will definitely be more where that came from.

The hunt for a dog continues. We've had our eye on this girl, Pearl, for over a month now. After over a month of back and forth with the rescue, they finally told me that her foster mother is going to keep her. I'm glad she found a home, but I wish I hadn't gotten my heart set on her.

The rescue felt bad, though, and sent me a picture of these pups, and told us we could have first pick of the litter when they're ready to go home.

You know you want to see pictures of the tiny puppies.

It's hard to tell with them all overlapped like that, but I think there are 7 pups total.

Aaaw, I love how they're all snuggled up together and the two are falling right out of the bed.  The one on the right in the bottom picture looks like a little porcupine or something!  We know their mom is a Yorkie, so they'll be small.  Here's the mom:

But, without knowing what the dad was, we really don't know how big they'll be. They could be a mix with another small dog, like a chihuahua or dachshund, in which case they'll be small dogs, or they could be a mix with a bigger dog and end up as larger dogs. I think the top few in the top picture look like pugs, so maybe they're a pug mix?  

In the meantime, there's a Humane Society adoption event at 2nd Leash on Life, a pet supply store near our house tomorrow so we'll go out and see if we find love there.  It's not exactly a hopeless place.

Speaking of hopeless, the weather continues to be grey. It rains at least a few minutes a day, sometimes all day. Last Wednesday was the darkest day since 2006. This article, KOMOnews: Seattle's December proves sometimes it's dark after the dawn too, concludes that if you add up the sun received every day in the month of December, it equals the sun energy in one day in June in Seattle. Let me tell you, it is perfect nap weather, but not so perfect getting-out-of-bed-and-unpacking weather.
