Howdy!

Oh my goodness, it's been entirely too long since I blogged last! So many blog-worthy things have happened in the last month and a half, but I just have not had the time or the motivation to blog about any of them. Very sad! I'll get caught up on all of it one of these days. I hope!

One of the more note worthy things that has happened was this impulse buy...


We have talked about getting another dog off and on for a while, but never really pursued it. Then one day we were just finishing up a bunch of errands and on our way home we just happened to pass a "Puppies for sale" sign. The boyfriend saw it, said the puppies looked pretty cute and suggested we go look. I kept right on driving. For a little bit. I did eventually turn around. After all, what does just looking hurt? lol



Obviously, the "just looking" didn't work out so well. And we came home with this little guy...



Born January 1st



Border Collie and Australian Cattle Dog (Heeler) mix



Absolutely freaking adorable



We have finally decided on the name Cletus for him. His full name is Cletus D. Pooper, but don't tell the boyfriend that. He hates that I all him Pooper. And the D stands for Dude, my other nickname for him.



The parents weren't onsite, but we were told that both mom and dad were small-ish for their breeds. We figured he'd probably be about Cheyanne's height, but probably a little bulkier. But do you see the size of his legs and paws? I'm having my doubts on that!



I finally got inspired to get my camera out today and got all of these pics of him. He was quite the sport, posing pretty for the camera! :-)



I just love his eyes. When we got him they were this really cool almost purpleish gray. Now they are a really rich chocolate brown.



And he has the cutest little bum!



And I wish so, so much that the darn wheel barrow wasn't in the background of this shot! I love him peeking out from behind the tree, but that blue kinda ruins it. Bummer!



Hope you all are having a wonderful spring!

How'd I miss this post? Even though I've been slacking I've still been checking for updates & didn't see this one! These are SUCH great pics of C.D.P. ;) I'm lovin' the full name. The initial makes it. He sure is turning into a HANDSOME guy! Amazing how quickly they change when they're young. I need to get in some Cletus time while he's still (somewhat) little!
