I have a new creature in my house.
Look at it.
It's the black furry one with the irresistible eyes and the softest ears and the cutest muzzle that gives the sweetest, gentlest of kisses.
It keeps my feet warm while I am sleeping and plays joyfully and lovingly with my boys.
It makes me smile.
It is a girl.
Her name is Lola-Roo.
And I love her.
********dear husband,the fact that I said I love her in no way relieves you of taking her outside at the crack-a-dawn, cleaning her messes, fixing the fences or teaching her to walk on a leash without removing my arms from their sockets.
