{we are family.}

Yesterday, after I finished my radio interview for Gussy {whaaat?! I know, so crazy :] I’ll post the podcast soon!}, we headed to a pet adoption event hosted at a local pet store. We met Bauer, fell in love with him, and were able to bring him home with us!!!

Pet adoption, from what we’ve experienced, doesn’t usually happen that fast. There’s a little bit of paperwork and reference checking, so it is supposed to take a few days. But, we really wanted to have an entire weekend with our new puppy, so bringing Bauer home with us was so perfect :]

Bauer is a 12-week-old Australian Cattle Dog with a mix of Terrier — and he’s precious! He weighs about 8 lbs. — awwww! He was with his two brothers when we first met him. And yes, I did think about asking Zack if we could adopt all 3 ;]

Bauer has the best personality. He loves to play, slide around on the wood floors, and go for walks. But he also is a little cuddler. He’s taken a lot of naps already. We ♥ him!!!

I’m already thinking about Halloween ~ what should we dress him as? If we adopted a girl pup I’d totally put a ruffle on her and call it a costume. And our Christmas card ~ eeek! We’ve had him for less than 24 hours and we already L O V E him. Bauer is the perfect addition to our family :] yayyyy

Welcome to our family, Bauer — we love you bunches! {And your warm paws. And your little tail that wags. And that you let me make videos of you… [see below].}

    Aw, congrats on your new addition! He’s adorable! Is it weird that I get puppy fever almost as bad as baby fever? Even though I already HAVE a dog (and 1.5 babies)?

    It is my personal opinion that terrier mixes are the cutest dogs. :-) I love the little fuzzies around their noses, the turned-down ears and their eyes. Ours is a collie/terrier… solid white, looks like a terrier, has border collie size. He is perfect and has a great personality too.

    You’re going to love Bauer :-)

    Oh my word. He is adorable. (and – the name … fab!) Christmas card photo … I’m thinking a green/white striped tie (well, doesn’t *have* to be green/white stripe …) around his neck (maybe a tie that is normally meant for little boys?) … Maybe Zack could wear a matching/complimentary one? ;)

    Congratulations! He’s SO cute! Just when I thought my life was perfect, my husband and I got a pug puppy…and now life is even MORE perfect (though slightly chewed).

    [..YouTube..] I just got two words (well 3 lol) for this next episode: OH HELL YEAH!!!! And aww, rest in peace Dana Walsh NOT! Did she hlesntoy think Jack would let her stay alive?! You know I was worried that it would only be another bad ending for Bauer, but this time, once again I use the saying My oh MY, how the tables have turned!’ And the one who killed Renee, Jack gets to torture, and I can hardly wait to see JB kick his ass! JACK BAUER = UNBREAKABLE!

    : Il est clair que le de9bat est sans fin. Cela dit je pre9fe8re quand un sample est me9connaissable, qu il a e9te9 reilvaatrle9, triture9 que lorsqu il est pose9 brut avec uniquement un ryhtme poum tchac par dessus. Dans le 2e8me cas, quand je de9couvre le sample j ai l impression d avoir e9te9 pris pour un con.Quand j ache8te un album e0 15€, je n ai pas envie d entendre un simple re-edit d un morceau des anne9es 70 mais un vrai travail sur un e9chantillon.Pour ce qui est de l argument de donner une seconde vie e0 un morceau passe9 inapere7u e0 l e9poque, je re9pondrais que si les artistes veulent nous faire de9couvrir ces morceaux, ils ont qu a sortir des selections (Late Night Tales, Choice sont de tre8s bonnes re9fe9rences par exemple) plutot que d en faire un titre bacle9.Pour ce qui est des Daft, je suis tellement accroc qu ils pourraient sortir une reprise de comme un ouragan que je leur pardonnerais
