The big yes

Janet Aird and Petrea Burchard took the long walk with me this weekend when I put Phoebe down.

Received this message from Janet today:

Seeing how much you loved Phoebe really made me realize how much I loved having a dog. I hope this doesn’t make you feel sad, but on Sunday I got an overwhelming impulse to jump back into the pool. We met at the humane society in Pomona on Tuesday and this is what she looked like last night after a big day of getting spayed and coming home.



No name yet! Very tempted to call her Stumpy, for obvious reasons once you see her.

I love her beautiful coloring. Maybe Margaret will come up with a name from a goddess or something.

Beautiful, like wood grain. Peanut butter and toast. Peanut. No, that's not grand enough...

janet said...

Peanut it is. It makes me smile. It's cute and affectionate - just like she is, plus she's a third the size of any of my previous dogs. She isn't grand at all - in spite of Karin's flattering photos.

Thank you!

Try Peanut on for size. I think you two have got a week to make your mind.

(Whatever you end up with, it'll be better than "Albert.")

I'm so thrilled by this. What a beautiful doggie - how could anyone have parted with such a cutie? Janet, you were so lucky to find little Peanut.

that pup looks pooped

altadenahiker said...

You know what? We're all pooped over here. I've been spelling your as you're and its as it's and falling as faling and I don't know what else. I'm going to take two mornings and call you in the aspirin.

Susan Campisi said...

She looks so sweet. Reminds me a bit of my dog I had as a kid, Taffy.

Is that grammatically correct? I'm pooped too. Can't think. Can't write.

She looks so sweet and relaxing!

How wonderful that Phoebe inspired your friend to give another homeless dog a happy life!

Peanut's a cute name, but I kind of like "Albert," too. My parents had a friend named Albert, and he had a squished in face like a boxer or a pug. So I always think of dogs when I hear the name Albert.

Carolynn said...

Not a very nice welcome, but I'm sure she'll receive a lot of spoiling to make up for it.

anonymos2 said...

What's wrong with you ... and what's wrong with Albert?

Just be rational!

I love her glowing eyes

Nice addition to Phoebe's story! Also a very nice looking pooch. I've always wished I'd named one of my dogs Gumbo. Probably says more about me and food than doggie names.

I hope you appreciate that your loss of Phoebe has inspired Janet to adopt a shelter puppy. The circle of life. . .

Desiree said...

What a sweetie!

Also, I don't understand this circle of life business. It looks unfairly linear to me--

Ken Mac said...

I'll take those two mornings and call you chumley

Shell Sherree said...

Oh, she's beautiful!! I'm very happy for Janet and Peanut.

Petrea Burchard said...

Oh my goodness! Leave town, come home, and Janet has a Peanut!

Kaori said...

What a sweet dog. Is her name really Peanut? That's what I call my BF's baby girl...it's a really great name :-)

I need orange said...

What a lovely legacy for Phoebe, that you and she should inspire someone to take home that pretty girl.....

Margaret said...

I'm so glad Janet got a pup! Still sad about Phoebe, though.
