Introducing Riley

Kevin and I visited the Yorkichon (Yorkie/Bichon mix) pups tonight at 8pm. After one hour, we went home with our decision to adopt the brindle boy. We will name him Riley. This top picture was taken by Hope, the breeder. Gotta love her name!!! Hope. God gives us the hope of a new puppy to love and care for after losing our precious Macy girl. Thanks to God for His furry gift to us! I have to do some puppy supply shopping before picking him up tomorrow afternoon or evening. Wow....first I have to velcro everything to the ceiling. LOL!
This picture was taken right before we left Hope's house. All three pups were in their playpen and she got their attention with a squeaky toy. They are in order of size and energy in this picture. Riley's temperment is more like Tucker's (laid back yet playful), then the baby girl is a little more feisty and the black one is most energetic. Hope does have an interested person for the little black one. His new home might be in Michigan. I told the girl "I hope you find a mommy, too." If I could have, I would have adopted them all! See Riley on the left? He was the only one looking at me when I snapped this picture. Guess he knows he has to get ready to be posing for pictures for all my scrapbook layouts. LOL! It was so much fun watching them all play together. What little blessings they all are...
Another blessing today: We got a response from Tracie at the Eskie Rescue. We are the first application for Jax and all we have to do is contact her to set up a home visit. I do have to tell her about Riley, as when we applied we had no other animals. It will be interesting to see how Jax reacts to the little furball who might be his brother. It's a lot to look forward to, but also a happy nervousness as well. When we had Macy, Kevin was outnumbered 2 to 1. Now, if we have Jax and Riley, I'll be the only female. LOL! Oh and Jax won't graduate from his obedience training at the prison program until 12/24/08. If he is meant to be ours, it will be one amazing Christmas present for our little family. :)

Natalie and Kevin, I'm so happy for you! I have tears of joy. What a beautiful little pup. He will be such a delight, I'm sure. Your home will once again be filled with the pitter patter of 4 little feet. Oh and I love the name. That's the name of my little eskie grandpuppy in Florida.
