The puppy has landed

Our new puppy is โ€˜Limeโ€™. (Lime is the colour of the collar she was given at birth) We have not decided on a name yet. While I still like โ€˜Pinkโ€™ a lot as a puppyโ€ฆ in the big picture considering what B. and I want to do with a dog โ€“ considering aptitude and personality โ€“ Lime seems to suit us better. So she is our happy, yelping, digger, dirt eating, fetching, crazy puppy.

The ride home with the puppy was, without question, the longest 2 hours I have ever spent in a car. My god. The puppy yelped, whined and screamed nearly the entire drive home. My nerves were shot at the end of it and I wondered WTF did we bring home. Of course when you break it down from the puppy point of view, she had good reason to whineโ€ฆ but Jesusโ€ฆ. Two hours straight of high pitched yelping and I start to crack. She calmed down considerably once in the houseโ€ฆ which is more than I can say for the cats. I pull them out from under the downstairsโ€™ futon just to feed them. Clearly there are going to be many growing pains here. Iโ€™ll post photos later. Iโ€™m freaking exhausted.
