Mabel and the Mister

Our hiking buddies, Hank and Sue, have a new brother - a tiny chihuahua! This is so remarkable because Hank and Sue are Rhodesian Ridgebacks and each weigh nearly 100 lbs! Their mom saw the pup at our favorite neighborhood thrift store. All kinds of people were holding him high in the air by the scruff of his neck. She said it was worth the asking price to know that no one would ever hold him that way again.

He's gone through many names in the past week. I can't even remember them all. But some highlights are: Henry (the "grown up" version of Hank!), Baxter, Dexter, Junior and his mom is calling him "The Egg" at the moment. I personally don't think it fits so I've resorted to calling him The Mister  or Mister Man.

We got to babysit one day last week and I thought you might like to see the highlights.
Mabel Lou meets the Mister

"Umm... that's MY bed Mister!"

Somebody actually pouted a bit while Mister Man was visiting!

Mister made my mom just glow!

After a while, he got tired. It seemed all he needed was two soft "pillows."

Mabel, Mister and I all curled up on the sofa for a little nap. All was well. Unless, I took my left hand off Mabel Lou. Then, I got "the look!"

We had a great visit and hope to babysit again!!!

He's awfully cute.

I knew a Rhodesian Ridgeback who was a total wuss, but she scared the hell out of people just by being so big.

That's Junior:) He is just as cute as can be - we think he is adorable. He sure knows how to find the most comfortable snoozing spot.

He's pretty cute. We know about pouting with a new "puppy". When cuz'in Ruger started hanging around we weren't all that thrilled.

Thanks for you kind thoughts when our brother Lucky crossed over!
