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...


  1. Aww, Arnie is adorable! And I love the story of your daughter and the book. I have several books I felt that way about growing up. Still do, as a matter of fact.

  2. Congratulations on your new baby! Have fun! I love that he's got a literary name!

  3. Arnie is adorable! (I am very jealous.) I will dog sit whenever you need me to. What a perfect name.
