where do i start first?
new puppy?

yes, new puppy!

when rebecca moved out of the dorm and into an apartment with a girlfriend this may, her room-mate was just leaving for a month in europe. i didn't want rebecca to be all alone for a month, so she took our yellow lab, madaket back to school.

what was i thinking? after vacation with me on nanucket, and babysitting our dogs and cat while tom and i were on the cruise, of course rebecca wanted to take madaket back to school with her.

having rebecca leave for school her sophomore year with maddie was even harder than dropping her off her freshman year.

so in my loneliness i decided to get a new puppy.

this was the ad photo in the newspaper online-

now really, how could i resist?

look at the size of those paws!

his name is shimmo, from nantucket.

shotsie is showing shimmo the ropes. i've been amazed at how tolerant shotsie has been at 13. the cat is not amused.

two buttons for a puppy- play and sleep!

my latest knitting (what i can get done during puppy naps) has been two super secret projects for anne. so no photo.
