The other reason I was a little bit of a space cadet this week:
A nine week old Wire Fox Terrier puppy! (Photo extra big for your viewing pleasure. You'll just have to imagine the puppy breath.) We picked her up today.
We haven't decided on a name yet. I'm leaning towards something flowery, like Ivy, Petunia, Zinnia or Nigella. A family conference tomorrow will pick the winner.
I'd love to take her to BreyerFest, but I'm not sure the rest of the family would approve of me absconding with the world's cutest puppy for a week.
