Great excitement here this weekend! Remember my plan when we got Jenny, our little miniature dachshund? Jenny was supposed to be a companion for both Jay and our cat Emily. The first goal was a complete success. Maybe even too successful. Jenny is definitely "Jay's dog." She only hangs out with me early in the morning before Jay gets up. Once she hears him open the upstairs bedroom door she zooms up the stair to greet him and sticks by his side for the rest of the day.
As far as the cat goes score that as a total fail. Emily hates Jenny. The trouble is Jenny likes Emily. They are the animal world equivalent of oil and water. I don't know who I feel sorrier for - Emily having to put up with the dog being playful and full of energy, or Jenny, who gets swiped or hissed at by the cat every time she tries to get near her.
Meet my solution to this dilemma.
This adorable little bundle of fur is the latest addition to our family. He is a West Highland Terrier, and is even cuter in person than in the pictures. I am having a really hard time deciding on a name. I'm torn between Fergus, Hamish and Angus but I'm open for suggestions. If you think of a good Scottish name please leave a comment. In the meantime, all I can say is it's a dog's life around here!
