Potential Puppy Playmate!

Okay, once upon a time, I posted this: Potential Puppy Playmate? My friend's dog was having puppies and I was thinking about adopting one. I didn't end up doing so (even though they were so stinking cute I just about died), but... I have a dog!

Well, I've had one for about ten years. I think I mentioned that in that other post. She, Precious, is a border collie/blue heeler mix. She's 12-13 years old (we're not sure about her DOB) and she's stinkin' adorable.

It took most of the break to convince my parents that I needed to bring her back to school with me, and I've just about almost convinced them! Right now we're kind of having a probationary period. If, at the end of the week, I think I can handle this, I can keep her down here. If not, I have to take her back to the 'rents. It's been less than 24 hours but we're doing good so far.

Other than having to clean up after her... ahem... messes twice already.

But we went for a walk today! Here are some photos that I took with my new camera! (That's right, #54, done!) :)
Almost the whole time we're on our walks, she sniffs the ground. It's cute...most of the time. :)
Her favorite thing to smell. :( We stood there for about a minute. That doesn't sound like long, but it is when it smells. :/
We discovered a pool that I didn't even know we had! But...
So we had to keep going. We made our way back to the apartment and encountered the other problem that may keep her from staying. That's right. The stairs. She hates them. I've already had to carry her up them about five times. In this photo, she's protesting them. Just standing there.
She gave them a try, this time. We'll see if this trend continues. :)


  1. She is a cute dog...Glad you got to explore wiht a pool! Maybe she just needs to get used to the stairs?

    PS-Thanks for stopping by my place and following. I'll be joining you!

  2. Aw, how cute! I hope that she'll start walking up the stairs so that you can keep her with you! I wish I could bring my dog at home to school with me too, but the rest of my family would be pretty peeved that I stole him. Ohhh well!


Commenting? How lovely. Please try not to talk about dead cats.
