new member of our family... rogie vachon!

yes, named after the famous l.a. kings player! we thought we'd get a small dog for tuesday, who was so very sad after losing her sister. well, this guy stole our hearts. he was abandoned (probably by someone who lost their home) and rescued by save-a-pet. he's about 2 years old, fixed and micro-chipped and is just a really great dog. very mellow, doesn't jump and can use the doggie door! he's had only a couple of pee accidents in the house. tuesday tolerates him pretty well

and is even playing with him! we've had him almost two weeks now. he's a wonderful dog!!!

we knew the time was coming... when we got home at 7:30 last night from vegas, our beloved puppy divot had passed away. a friend had looked in on the dogs at 4:30 and she was fine, although seemed to be on a "hunger strike." she hasn't been eating very well the past couple of weeks. she had a great life with us over the past 10+ years. she was a happy puppy and a great playmate for cooper. when i told him that she had died and now she's in heaven with his fish and tortoises, he started crying and said "but she's my best friend. i won't see my best friend ever again." we all patted her head, told her we will miss her and we love her... rest in peace, puppy...
