We have some news

So the DH found a meetup fundraiser BBQ thingy for dog rescue that some friends were going to down the street from us so we decided to stop by. The rescue had a bunch of chihuahuas that they pulled from LA shelters since they were on the euthanasia list. The DH has always loved small dogs so he spent a while taking pictures while I shopped.

Anyone see where this is leading?

So I went back to the DH and he pointed out a dog and told me how cool he is. He also told me that we should see if we can foster him. I looked at my DH and said "you are finally willing to get a third dog but you want a 5lb chihuahua?" Well seeing how I love rescue dogs I would like to introduce everyone to Big Carl:

This dog is the DHs dog but he is afraid of men so for now he is always in my lap. We did learn he loves cheese so the DH spent a long time hand feeding him cheese so Big Carl is warming up to him. The girls are adjusting to it. Baily doesn't care and Mesa keeps forgetting he is here because she wants the cheese. Right now we are all on the sofa relaxing and watching the playoffs.
