3.8.2010- Webster arrives!!!!

There is a huge (someone said 40 acres) flea-market held every Monday in the town of Webster, almost an hour north-east of Gulf Coast Resort. Gracie, Jerry and Barb, Tom and I decided it would be a fun day trip to go.

Well, I fell in love, big time! Gracie and I walked by a stall where puppies were being sold, took one look at the cutest pup I can remember,,, a 4+ month old (born on November 30, Gracie’s birthday) 7 1/2 pound Brussels Griffon, bred by the seller’s daughter. Love at first sight but, being very aware of my penchant for impulsive spending, we walked away. Did some more looking around/shopping and finally rejoined the others. Had lunch and could not stop thing about the pros and cons of having a pet. We all decided to go back and let me check out the fur-ball another time. Well, we all ooh-ed and aah-ed (Tom kept muttering common sense arguments in my ear- lack of sleep, expense, carpet stains, etc.). Very impressed with the seller, very caring about the animals and willing to spend time with me. Cost was very, very reasonable- so low I wondered what may be wrong with the dog. Physically, he has an under-bight, no concern to me in that showing him is of no interest. Paper work and payment completed, we headed to the car, Tom still muttering. 😉

A video taken by Jerry on the way. That is Gracie pushing the cart and Webster leading me. I had thought about a name during lunch, landing on Pepper, the name of a Cairn Terrier I had many years ago. Realizing that my son Rob may have a problem with that, I decided on Webster, a name that I consider dignified and yet cute. And I will always remember where I bought him.

Some better pictures of my pooch…

My blogs have been delayed by the time it is taking to take care of and get used to my new friend. For this I apologize. I am definitely sleep deprived, TV deprived, food deprived (excepting Gracie’s wonderful meals) and, most assuredly, credit-line deprived (the pet store loves me)! There have been a few short moments of second-guessing but one look at the face and all doubts fly away. I have a friend and companion for which I am responsible, something I have been missing for quite some time.
