Back in September, I fell in love with a dog....(you can read about it here). I came home from Orlando dying for a Yorkie, but once I did the research and saw how much they were, I kind of put that out of my mind. I though the chances of me finding one at the shelter were virtually non-existent. I have always been a cat person and based on the fact that I currently have 2, I figured that it was probably for the best. Fast forward to Thursday of last week...my friend Jan sent me a text telling me that she had found my dog. Long story short...she and I made the 2+ hour drive to Paris, TX Saturday morning to pick her up. The previous owners had just had a new baby (2 months old) and the dog was not adjusting well, apparently. Their loss, my gain!

She is such a sweetheart! She is doing much better with the cats than they are with her....so far they are not fans!! So much so that Jessi, went kind of bananas yesterday morning. I let her out in the side yard (which is fenced in) and turned my back for about 2 minutes and this is where she ended up....

There is still a lot of hissing going on - Jack is the worst, but I am trying to think positive and hope that with time everyone will adjust! Last night, all three of them slept with me, so there is hope!
Saturday, was also Zach's 13th birthday...yikes! Although his father and I have been divorced almost 7 years, we still celebrate his birthday together every year. We take him out to dinner - just the three of us. We switched it up this year and went to Fireside Pies in Ft. Worth....
We had an hour wait for a table and of course had to snap a couple of pics.

Zach got his favorite Fireside appetizer.....calamari!
We finished the evening off with dessert from Sweet Sammies. Homemade cookies sandwiching Blue Bell ice cream...so yummy.
Not the weekend that I had expected, but a great one none the less! Now I am panicking because I am nowhere near ready for my retreat....uugghhh. Have a great week!
