We have puppies!
Rose has the anxious look perfected. Do not be taken in-she is the wild child of the pair.
What are they? Good question-the shelter was calling them lab mix-emphasis on the mix I would say. Honey does look like a mini lab-Rose more like a 18lb Chihuahua.
We collected them from the shelter in Vancouver on Wednesday-left home at 6am and crawled into our house four ferries and 13 hours later. I was exhausted and fell in to bed at nine-hubby (the night owl) was tasked with putting the girls to bed and getting himself something to eat and drink. He managed the girls to bed part. Then he fainted!
Long story short: All night in the emergency room. Diagnosis of dehydration. Hubs asleep wrapped in warm blankets as they poured I.V. fluids in him. Me beside him parked in a very hard chair. At one point I considered asking if I could sit with a more interesting patient but I thought they might not appreciate my sense of humour.
Home at 5:30am-I had now been awake for 24 hours-me who cannot manage on less than a solid nine. Alarm went off at 7am for me to take pups outside while hubs slept on. The puppies, by the way, slept through the whole thing.
