Introducing.........Galileo Sugar!

Well the day has finally come and most of you were right. We have a new addition to the family!

Hellohey, Bloggy Friends,

I have been wanting a Yorkshire Terrier (or Yorkie) since I was a kid. I always thought they were the cutest dogs to ever live. When we first got to PA and moved into this big apartment we thought it was a good chance to finally get one, but once we started work/school it didn't seem like our schedules would allow us the time. Plus, everywhere we looked they were so expensive - thousands of ridiculous dollars. Not that they aren't worth that, but come on! So, we got our two kitties and have been so happy with them.

Well recently my friend, Craig, called and said his Yorkie just had puppies and he is selling them. They are pure bred and he was going to sell them at a much more reasonable price than we have found before. So we talked about it and decided to go through with it! I'm so excited.

At this point he is only about three weeks old and still has to be with his mother. We will be able to pick him up around the first of May when he is around eight weeks. The picture above is the only one I have at the moment, and that was taken just before his eyes were opened up. Doesn't he look so cute and perfect? Craig actually lives in Louisville, so we are going to have to make a quick trip home one weekend to pick him up. It isn't the most ideal of situations, but we'll work it out.

I can't wait to bring him home and see how the kitties react to him. They are two of the sweetest, most affectionate cats I've ever owned, so I think they will really adapt well. They are great with strangers. They are also so playful, so I think they will all have a ball running around together like good brothers and sisters.

Alan chose the name Galileo, because it was Galileo, the physicist, that inspired him to go into science when he was at Vanderbilt, in Nashville. I love the name.

Anyways. Thanks for voting in the poll and for making it fun for me to post and act sly this week! It was fun to pretend like everyone was in suspense, even though I knew most of you had used your clever noggins to figure it out!

Have a great day and be sure to catch updates in the future on further Galileo developments. I'll share pictures as I get them and will surely make a video of our trip to KY in a few weeks.

Love ya'll!


P.S. I found a cute video on YouTube that I like to watch over and over. Can you believe I'm gonna have one of these little things running around my house in a few weeks!?!?!?!

CONGRATULATIONS! I am so happy that you have new addition to you family. Dogs make life so much more enjoyable. I love my cats, but Mushi & Taiko make our world go round. And yes! You are my bloggy gay :) Love you girl!

Everything is SO green in Danville, it's like another world compared to C-town, its crazy. We hit up the CiCis pizza buffet and watched all the high schoolers hang out last night. Got to love the good cusine we have back home huh!

Yay for you and Alan! She looks like a doll. =)

It'll probably be a quick trip to pick her up, but if want to make a pit stop in Cincinnati, let me know!

How fabulous. We have the next model up, a Cairn terrier (also have a Scottish terrier).

That's an OK-sized family. We have TOO many and can't go away together (the main reason Gary and I can't stay over together at your place ... or anywhere else). But you two can potentially take the dog with you on trips and board the cats (or have someone come in, etc.).

You two are in nesting mode bigtime! Sweet!!!
