We Have a Dog!!!

Well, it's Joi's dog but she says I get to be the daddy so it's all good. He doesn't have a name yet but what we do know is he is a purebred Yorkshire terrier and is 3 months old. I guess his dad is some big deal champion dog and Joi is never allowed to neuter him and if she (for whatever reason) decides she doesn't want him in the next 3 years they will buy him back from her. So if you have some good name ideas, it's open to suggestions. Although I think she wants a real human type name and not something stupid like Snuggles or Fluffy.

Melt over his cuteness:

























So it was a long day and everyone was pretty exhausted by the end of it all. We had a majorly long subway ride home (from about 542 to 513 on the purple line) and then we took a cab from Songjeong. It seemed to take forever with a squirming puppy but we made it. He seems to be settling in nicely and everyone already loves him. Even Jon who only seems to like ugly dogs with something wrong with them. Last weekend we looked at dogs (and Matt and I fell in love with an adorable daschund puppy, but had the sense not to buy it) Jon liked the one that looked like it was about 10 minutes away from dying. Today he bonded with this sorry looking one-eyed mutt that I dubbed "Wink". I'm certain he will learn to love our dog in time, even if it's healthy and has all of his eyes, ears, legs and internal organs.

Dear Amber.

Jon Teacher is cute, and therefore I think you must allow him this weakness.

Remember the Russ Rule: It's a good thing he is pretty, because he's not...

I'm sure you remember the rest.

If you haven't already named the dog, you should name him Herman, Floyd or Jacob I think. Let me know the name....

I'd suggest 'Gordo' for the dogs name. I will also accept 'Gord' and 'Gordon'.

The name just popped into my head, but at second glance, he does look a bit like Commissioner Gordon from Batman.

Yeah, good idea, Dylan. Name him after the Tragically Hip guy, this ensuring his perpetual failure with the lady dogs.

I can't wait to see what you name your poor children.

Oh he is so cute! And just think Matt all you had to do to get a dog was move half way around the world away from Mom's critism . Ha I'm not allowed to have a dog and I'm not even in the same city! I think you should call him....Huratio or Grissim (and yes I'm a big CSI fan) how about Napoleon. Regenald Montgomery Hiedcliff!

Love you
Leah

So no name yet, although I think she is leaning towards Isaiah (I have no idea if I spelled that correctly). I kinda like Gordo, but hey, I've always had a soft spot for the Hip.

And Leah, technically he's our roommate's dog so we get to do all the fun stuff with minimal real responsibility. :D
