    We got a new furbaby!!!

    We had been discussing getting a pet as a companion for my FIL, who has been living with us since January (we brought him over from Portugal because of Alzheimer's). He reminisces at times because his long term memory is better than his short term. One of the stories he tells a lot is that of a dog he had when he was a boy, and how he cried for 3 days when the dog got hit by a car. We could tell it was very meaningful because there are just a few stories he tells over and over.
    My daughter and I brought home this sweet girl today: she is a Cairn Terrier - Her name is Ella and she is 3 1/2 months old. Calm, sweet temperament, and get this... she was born on my FIL's birthday!! (12/28) - this pic was taken just about a half hour after we came home, and shortly thereafter she was sleeping curled up on his hand. A winner!

        I LOVE it!
        I really need to get off the exclamation point.
        It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

          Looks like my Cooper!! You are in for the ride of your life! They are very busy little dogs full of energy! I used to walk ours around the lake 3x (one mile around) and he wasn't ready to quit! He could have kept at that all day long!

          Have fun w/Emma!

                              What a kind thing to do for your father-in-law. The pup looks like a real sweetheart and should give your FIL great companionship. I tried the same thing with my mom since she was always a dog lover but it didn't work out. I stupidly took her a very active puppy. I should've gotten her an older dog that would've been calm. I ended up taking the dog back on the plane with me and returning him to the breeder. It was not a happy experience. Your choice looks like an excellent one. This is what I wanted for mom. Oh well. I had good intentions. Your FIL looks very content with his new pup.
