so, i finally did it

My friend has been saying she’ll take me to the puppy market for months. I always thought it would be a bad idea because I would come home with 80 puppies. What I expected was a bunch of old ladies with blankets on the side of the street with a cabbage, shoe inserts, a box of puppies, and some pickles. Boy, was I wrong. First off, it’s not just puppies.

Goldfish. Actually, tons of different kinds of fish. And Birds….all kinds of birds…

I have no idea what these are. So I start looking around for the tigers and elephants and stuff, but either they weren’t there or I was looking down the wrong row. So then I got down to business. Puppies.

So many cute dogs. So many cute HUGE dogs. Most with photos of their parents, and a booklet telling you about the breed. The breeders looked proud and loving, and the dogs looked healthy and happy. And so redonkulously adorable.  So we went and looked at the smaller dogs. My friend fell in love with this guy:

and I lost my heart to this little fellow…

Who will most likely be coming home with me next weekend. I figure since my arm is going to be recovering for a few more months I’ll need some distraction. The best thing is the entire time I was in the pet market, my arm didn’t hurt at all. Puppies really are the best medicine. So my original thought was to give him a name with a title. Something along the lines of “Lord Killsworthy” or something, but now I’m not so sure. Suggestions are welcome…

    Gah! We found the cutest little puppy last week and saved him from certain death in the street. We asked everyone trying to find him a home and in the end took him to the pet market and paid a babushka to take him and house him for us.

    I almost emailed you, mysterious blogger lady, but didn’t for some reason. Had I only know (and you not been so mysterious.) Oh well. He’s probably at the market. I can send you a picture if you want to go find him.:)

    Hey! Warn your friend about the sharpei. They are susceptible to skin diseases in all those folds. As for naming the cutie you’re looking at: the heavy gold chain made me think of Jam Master J from Run DMC. Okay, you may now scoff.

    Hey Illnoise, nice Young Ones reference.

    The worst thing to do would be to name him/her something French. Too expected.
