Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls, Madames and Monsieurs...

I present our new dog.

Yes, he is BUDDY the dog I wrote about once on this blog. We have officially adopted him as being foster parents proved more difficult and a story to tell one day. After a long list of possible names with much debate he is now - GROVER.

He still loves to chew up anything in sight but never any of his "chew" toys and yes, Chewie was a possible name. The damage list so far ...

- a vintage 1980 Empire Strikes Back "Taun Taun" action figure.
- the battery charger for my cell phone.
- a brand new plastic water/food bowl.
- a stack of plastic cups.
- 2 gardening gloves.
- 4 paint roller pads he found in the garage.
- one of the Fiancee's sneakers.
- a candle.

Not too bad knowing young dogs love to chew stuff. I did not expect him to be a landscaper though. Sure, maybe a hole or two in the backyard... but this?

I forgive him. I understand the need to re decorate when you move into a new place, especially finding yourself a favorite corner...

Welcome to your new home GROVER and don't chew on those smaller things that go "meow" that may cross your path in the living room.
