yesterday was this guy's birthday. steve, that is. ok, i'm a day late, but it's ok cause we decided to celebrate officially today. yesterday steve took the day off from work and took his best puppy, pixel, hunting. here they are at the breeder's when pixel was just 4 weeks old. it was the day we picked her from the litter. in the litter there was 1 boy and 6 girls. steve had his heart set on the boy. we were going to name him 'divot'. after our love for golf. we'd had the name picked out for a year.
at the breeder's, we spent an hour with divot. he didn't really seem to bond with us but we were going to pick him anway. steve was outside visiting with the litter's mama. i reached into the litter and this little girl below licked my hand. i snatched her up and held her close. she licked my face. i was sold. she said, pick me, pick me. or, at least that's what i heard with all her affection.
i called steve inside. and he held her too. she was at ease. she even fell asleep in his lap.
we picked her. sorry divot. i wonder whose home divot went to. i hope he's with a nice family.
