I did a bad thing... puppy pictures!
Mr. Heinz called me from work to tell me he'd left his wallet at home, and asked if I would bring him some money for lunch. As I arrived, he called to tell me that there was a man with puppies outside the store - and they look just like Bubba (our 2yo smooth coat border collie) and the whole spiel about the mother being the guy's brother's son's therapy dog and they bought her not knowing she was pregnant, and so on. (whether or not I believe that's true is another story)
This is the husband of mine that has told me numerous times that no, we do not need any more animals, none. Two horses, two dogs, and the inherited barn cat is plenty. BUT, as we're eating, he keeps mentioning the puppies and how cute they are, and how they look just like Bubba. So I said I'd look at them when we got back, who doesn't love a little puppy love. I know buying puppies from a desperate guy with a box in a parking lot is a BAD BAD THING, so please don't remind me. Our dogs are well cared for, eat fancy shmancy food, sleep on the bed and have more toys than I do. Did I mention we have a 7 month old GSD puppy also? :lol:
Needless to say, we now have a tiny little black and white puppy named Ruger. However, I'm afraid little Ruger is not, in fact, 7 weeks and 5 days old as the man said...he looks more like 5 or so weeks, unless he's a serious runt or crossed with something other than BC (entirely possible). Teeth are there, but he's slow moving and a little wobbly on his legs still. Mr. Heinz slept on the couch with the little guy last night, and he's spent most of the day passed out on his lap between potty breaks. Mr. Heinz is a sucker and has sent me about two dozen pictures in the last six hours. :lol:
Regardless, here is the little guy:
He's about the same size, maybe a little bigger, as my boss' chihuahua puppies were at 8/9 weeks, if that's any indicator. We haven't weighed him yet.
