A New Puppy!
Last night, we got a new puppy. He is a 12 week old Havanese. He is VERY cute and VERY energetic. Our almost-14-year-old daughter is taking much of the responsibility and she chose the name. (This is the part where you understand how a new puppy fits into a blog about reading...) He is named Arnie, after her very favorite book Arnie, the Doughnut (Adventures of Arnie the Doughnut) . When Ana was in elementary school, she checked out ARNIE THE DONUT every week for years. We bought her a copy, but she still liked to check out the book. And she continues to read it a few times a year. She was thrilled to see a new ARNIE book out-even though she is 14, this character continues to bring her joy! Lots of it. And since Arnie becomes a doughnut dog, it seemed even more perfect! So, what better name for a puppy that will also bring lots of joy.
Our older dog, Chloe, is not quite sure about him yet...
