Dead Bunnies and New Puppies
Today started out totally normal...I swear.
Justin and Adrian (our neighbor) mowing lawns. Then Justin comes to the back door with a small animal in his hands and tells me to get a box. When I come back he explains the whole thing. They were getting the grass around the kids' playset when they saw (what they thought were) mice flying through the air. Suddenly, Justin realizes they are bunnies! Only one survived but he was badly hurt. Poor little guy.
We drove an hour to Morehead City to take him to the Wildlife Center (nobody here treats bunnies?!) but I'm not sure he'll live. He was just a little one, had to still be nursing! So, Justin wanted to get Heather a bunny, you know...to avoid the whole "circle of life" talk. Now...a bunny I could have handled because it's small and well, that was okay.
Except he brought back a dog! NOT cool. I actually started crying. Stupid hormones. I thought I'd made it clear we weren't ready to have another dog, obviously not. *sigh* No point in arguing now. It was a shelter...they suckered him into it. If yesterday had been a bad day things might have gone differently. However, I was in a decent mood (until I saw the puppy) so...we have a dog. Her name is Cheyenne.
Hobbes isn't very happy about it all. He is starting to accept her. But this is his home. As long as she submits we should be good. Which I'm sure she will.
Now that I've depressed you all I guess I should change the subject? To knitting and things more positive! Like...pictures! YAY! I put pictures of my finished socks in my last post. Just because I didn't want to put them here. lol And here is the lovely yarn that Ruby Soho will be made out of. It's gorgeous. Dunno if I even mentioned I'd gotten it in.
