We got Myrddin at a pet adoption group set up outside of Petco during, of all things, a cookie booth. This year, we got Aibhne. Our rather, Youngest bought the dog. It's her puppy.
We almost escaped until I heard the words "Lab and Rhodesian Ridgeback mix". That stopped me in my tracks and I had to look. Rowan is a Ridgeback/Boxer mix and frankly he's the best damn dog ever so this one has some high expectations to meet.
See, he's good looking and knows it. He likes to stop and pose for pictures when the camera's out. Aibhne may have the same trait. Could be a Ridgeback thing.
She's awfully damn adorable. Must be a survival mechanism. By the way, the name is pronounced "Ev-ni".
Now, my sister did the same thing when she was in college. She bought a dog and had us keep it while she looked for an apartment that would let her have it. She failed to do so right away and by the time she did, the dog was officially my mother's. Hmmm. Could history repeat itself? If it does, Youngest has already said I will forfeit all future birthday gifts.
