Day 186 - Cuteness Overload!

Thursday, October 03, 2013

I have been wanting a Yorkie for the longest time. Our Scottish Terrier passed away about 3 or 4 years ago and my husband was devastated. He did not want another dog. He still did not want another dog. I have been badgering him for a long time and he is firm on his answer. In fact, he swore off vacations, day trips, or any other fun stuff other than golfing and eBaying. He is boring...

I just got tired of his "No" all the time. Sorry I am griping but he sometimes drives me nuts. When he gets home from work, he is on eBay until late in the night. He takes a break to go for a mile walk with me and for dinner, but that is the extent of our interactions. Sad...

So, last night, I decided that I wanted a puppy and there is nothing that my husband can do.

My son drove an hour and a half to pick him up while I went to work. When I came home, my 8 week old Yorkie was in the house!!!

We went shopping for puppy supplies. Came home and my husband was home...on eBay. I showed him the dog. He didn't say a word, just ignored me. Later, he told me that I will be responsible for the puppy financially and the training. Fine with me!

Hopefully my husband will warm up to the idea of the puppy. My 3 kids adore him! They chose the name, Zeus, for the male puppy. I will probably just call him Zeusie.


It is raining outside but on the cool side - so no jogging out in the rain. I did a mile on the treadmill without wrapping my foot. It actually did not hurt much! I think I am now officially over the sprained foot! I did have mild pain but it was not annoying.

I only did a mile since I still need to do some shopping and I have a vet appointment at 2 pm, then off to work at 4 pm.

Let the puppy fun begin!!!!!

    He is so adorable! I grew up with Chihuahuas, but Yorkies are the cutest! Maybe it's the beards. What a cutie.

    Congratulations on your new furry family member. I hope your husband will not mistreat it, since he does not want a dog in the house. I hope he warm up to him and start enjoying Zeus. He is so adorable.
