Around the same time we found out Molly was sick, we got a puppy! We didn't think we'd ever talk Mike into it but, seriously, he loves Mr. Ollie. Ollie is a maltipoo we found through Real Good Dog Rescue. Mike liked maltipoos since seeing an episode of Too Cute featuring them so when I saw a facebook post about rescues from a breeder that closed down, I immediately got up and filled out the forms at 1am Monday morning. By Friday, Ollie came to live with us! He's great. Especially now that he's mostly housebroken and not chewing ALL THE THINGS. He even has an instagram...
... where Butterscotch appears from time to time. Butterscotch is another rescue. He's the nicest cat in the world. If not the nicest, possibly the chillest. Autumn and I saw him, along with a few others, in the rescue area of Petco and convinced Mike to let us at least see if one of them was a good fit. I put each kitten in Autumn's arms and then in front of Ollie. We took home Scotch because he loved being held and didn't hiss at the overly enthusiastic dog. Oh, man. Best cat ever.
Well. I didn't expect to take a year off blogging and I certainly didn't expect to make my first post 90% about pets. I'll hopefully continue next week with the rest of our life changes, from powerlifting to going back to school! Oh, yeah, and purple hair.
