Welcome, Kirby


Kirby in a pocket.

We have an addition to the household. My daughter brought home a two-pound puppy to join our menagerie. For a family of five adults, all of whom have animal allergies, it is remarkable that we now have a cat and two dogs living here. Our first dog, Scooter is a large Labradoodle, weighing in at 75-pounds. While he is gentle-tempered, there is a lot of him to handle.  The new dog is a breed created by engineering a Maltese and a toy poodle. Full-grown, we can expect him to weigh a walloping eight-pounds.....four pounds less than our twelve-year old cat.  Kirby mews and whimpers rather than barks.  He is a particularly sweet dog. His cavorting can not help but bring a smile to even the most curmudgeonly of characters. 


  1. What a sweetheart! Can't wait to meet him.


  2. "...but bring a smile to even the most curmudgeonly of characters."

    I love that word, "curmudgeonly", thanks for using it.
    Now I'm going to a dictionary to see how it's pronounced.

    I read your article "My Journey: From Disorder to Order".
    I love your 5 step plan!
    Thank you!

  3. Thanks, Anna. The word sure works well in certain situations. i bet you are as a fan of words as I am. Thanks for reading my blog.
