New baby


We have adopted a puppy. He is just a precious little angel. His name is Rusty and he is 7 months old.  His body is orange and white with a curly tail, has an underbite with one tooth that curls up over his top lip, and eye brows that show his moods. His vet thinks that he is a basenji/ chihuahua mix and I see both in his personality. He shakes when he’s nervous, hunt rabbits and rips their heads off, he yoddles and barks. He has quite the personality and wins your heart when you meet him.

He does the funniest things. My husband came upstairs to see me with his phone in hand and shows me a picture of how Rusty had, some how, pooped on the wall!  What a talented little fella we have. Just last night I was getting ready for work and he was lying on our bed and he rolled over and put his paw up toward me to let me know he wanted his tummy rubbed.  When he gets a bath he runs around the house like a bat out of Hades and chases his tail. It’s a scream to watch him.  He is a real cuddle bug too. He sleeps between us every night.

He stayed with his Grandpa and Grandma when we went on a vacation to Florida. My mother was telling me how Rusty looks at Dad like he hung the moon.  She took the cuties pictures of Dad and Rusty taking a nap together.  Rusty jumps up onto his lap and Dad has a long conversation with him. Rusty looks up at him and reacts with moving eyebrows, ears and head cocking, like he knows what he’s saying .  Our hearts are warmed by him coming into our home.
