I bet a couple of you nearly went poo in your pants when you read the headline. Well you can relax—-I'm not pregnant.
And no, we didn't adopt another critter. But my sister Cathy (of the New York Cathys), also known as Pootsie (of the New York Pootsies), did.
According to Pootsie's communique,
Pansy was born on January 4, 2011, on the Jersey Shore. She is a purebred Mi-Ki and will be 5 to 8 lbs. at adulthood. The breed is known to be calm, sweet, intelligent, low energy and sociable. They are non-shedders and love to travel. Pansy is the first dog in this branch of the Callahan family. Wish me luck!26 million dog breeds and Cathy chooses one that I've never heard of: Mi-Ki.
I'm also dumbfounded: Ever since we were kids my sister has been a cat person. Didn't know a dog from a barn door. Either she's lost her mind or had one of those "awwww-isn't-she-precious" attacks all of us animal lovers are prone to.
Since I do know a little bit about canines, here are a couple tips:
1. Do not go about the house in your bare feet.
2. Be careful not to lose track of her when you're shoveling coal in the basement at midnight.
Everybody welcome Pansy with a "awwww-isn't-she-precious" comment.
