Our Girl Pearl
There she is in all her glory, we're picking her up on Saturday!! Of course we're having moments of perhaps we shouldn't - adding a puppy to the mix is always a stressful thing. But after thinking about it carefully, we've decided to go ahead and do it. I still miss Copper terribly, as much as a pain the butt as he was, he was also an important member of the family. Weirdly enough after all these years of having a vizlsa it's worse NOT having a dog tail your every move. Jackson is getting excited about it too and cannot wait to go get her. I've been busy at work - no rest for the wicked. Yesterday was a very early start for me but I got off early so that was nice. Jackson stayed home - he wasn't able to get off the couch all weekend so sending him to school didn't seem like too good of an idea. Since he's failing so many subjects we've taken his TV and video games and he's restricted on the Becky thing to 2 days a week. The Becky thing can be earned back by doing homework and the games are gone until the end of school. I'm finally starting to feel better, I'm down to an annoying cough and unplugged the vaporizer last night. I'm hoping to get a couple of days off this week, according to the rules if you do more than 5 visits while you're on call for the weekend you can take a day off during the week - hmmm. I did ask so we shall see if that's a real rule or not.(since I work 2 half days I asked if I could take them off).
