Erin's Home for Stray Siblings, Children, Cats and Dogs

As of today Erin's Home for Stray Siblings, Children, Cats and Dogs has a new resident. The sweetest little puppy found its way into Scott's heart and came home with him. And well, it turns out puppy eyes are like kryptonite to me. I have no strength to resist them. I can't say no! And so, even though I'm pretty sure the last thing we needed was a puppy, little CJ is sleeping in my living room.
At least we think her name is CJ, we haven't completely decided yet. Its short for either Calamity Jane or Curious Jorge, depending on who you ask. Both names are very appropriate to this little pup. She's a sweetie, and thus far, well-behaved. But my goodness is she a cute little puppy klutz! She falls downstairs, or suddenly becomes overwhelmed by gravity and just topples over, or my favorite, fails to realize the overhead dangers of walking under a larger dog. 
Speaking of larger dogs, big doggy Kaya has taken quite kindly to the puppy. She's mothering it and being very protective of it so far. She's also being her usual self and gets quite jealous if anyone dares pay too much attention to the puppy and not her. 
Kaya also took her first trip to the groomers today. I may have told them to shave her just a little too close! She looks like an idiot now! I'll have to take a better picture of her tomorrow. In this picture she just looks possessed!
They shaved her coat nice and short, which looks fine I guess. I just have to get used to the way it looks. But they didn't thin out her ridiculously huge tail at all! Scott says she looks like a 'squirrel dog.' I have to agree. 
As usual the big cat, Stinky, is off visiting his other homes right now, and hasn't been home to meet CJ yet. (We have a theory that Stinky has possibly been adopted by another home somewhere, and he just bounces between families. Next time he comes home, I'm forcing him to wear an ID tag and a collar with a bell.) Tiny Kitten, who still fears leaving our yard, and thinks grass is the enemy, has met CJ. Tiny isn't one for welcoming much of anything into his house. He just merely tolerates everyone's existance. And it pretty much goes the same for CJ. Tiny just keeps his safe distance and watches the puppy. 
This house has gone from being big and empty to suddenly feeling very full and cramped! 2 cats, 2 dogs, a brother, the brother's girlfriend, and me, all running around in here! Good heavens! 
Oh and did I mention I've applied to foster and mentor a monkey? And no, I'm not joking.

  1. Hee hee... your post title reminded me of the Cartoon Network show.. Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. If you haven't seen it - I think you'd like it!

    The premise is - Imaginary friends need a place to stay when their kids outgrow them. So Foster's has a home for imaginary friends until they can place them with a kid who needs an imaginary friend. Hilarity ensues.
