meet Toby


If you haven't already. He's our newest addition to the family. He's about 3 months, we adopted him from orange county animal services. He is the sweetest, cutest little thing! He has kept us both busy lately, with house training, and watching him to make sure he doesn't slip through the hole in the fence that the cats get through. He already knows where it is, and I'm not sure how we're going to solve that problem. I'd rather not put a shock collar on him, (he's so tiny!), but I don't want him wandering into the street or being picked up by someone else. Also, he's so small that an owl might mistake him for food! He doesn't go out at night, only if we are with him, and on a leash as well. He loves to run! We took him to the dog park yesterday and he had a good time playing chase with his cousins:

So needless to say, it's like having a baby in the house. We don't get much else done around here, and this is the first time in days that I have had a chance to sit down at the computer to write. I have a few things to catch up on, so I think I'll be especially busy this week. 

He is such a cutie pie and is so much fun to have around. It's only been a week and a half, so I have to remind myself that he's still new here. The cats still have yet to get used to him. He tries to play with them, but it doesn't work out to his liking:


I hope to be back in the swing of things soon. Nothing lasts forever right? and sometimes an unscheduled break is just what a body needs.
