New puppy

It’s been 3 years, almost to the day, since Illy died so a new dog is long overdue.

Our English Bulldog puppy arrived today at the airport via United Airlines PetSafe delivery. Gay and I went to pick him up and took him straight to the vet for an initial checkup.

He’s exactly 9 weeks old today, weighs 8lbs 11oz, is in good health and is, as yet, unnamed. We have a list of names (that mostly) the kids came up with that are acceptable to us but no final decision yet. I refuse to yell in public to a dog named “Sofa”, “Sandwich”, “Bowling Pin”, etc.

I’m not a fan of the English tradition of in-breeding (*cough* British Royal Family *cough*), but I do want a Bulldog and we waited too long for a Bulldog mutt, so I acquiesced. I hope we can potty-train him faster than we did the kids.
