A New Family Member

We have a new family member.  Kelly had found this dog and couldn't stop thinking about him,  All the girls were anxious to get a dog, but Kelly was set on this particular dog.  So far we like Murphy for a name, but let us know if you have any good ideas for a name for a male dog.  Thanks for all your ideas, Diana!
Don't forget to eat at Chili's tonight.  All profits will go to St. Judes Children's Research Hospital.  We will be at the Chili's in MIssion Viejo on Crown Valley.  If you can't eat there, you can get your food to go, and they will still donate the profits.   This is taking place at all Chili's across the country all day and evening.

I have more I want to write about, but it's time to go pick up kids.  I'll have more tomorrow!

Oh How Cute!!
A new doggy. I think Snoodle is a good name! However.. Murphy makes me want to look for the closest Irish Pub. You must color him green for St. Patty's day if you go for Murphy. He is so cute! Good luck with that adventure. If I would have known you were in the market for a new dog, I would've have driven my Rita down to your house directly. She needs a new place to dig holes, and if you have dirt? She is the dog for you! The girls look so good. It's supposed to hit 90 here today! Whoa Nelly. And I will be sipping something cold at Chili's tonight. Enjoy your dinner! Let me know what you had. I am leaning toward chicken taco's or something.

Hi Laudes,
Cute, cute dog!!! I will be thinking of some names, but I do like Murphy!

Thanks for the reminder about Chili's. Sorry I couldn't make it to Cold Stone on Thursday. How did that go? I did see an article in the paper about it, but it had a cute little girl in the article and it was Rancho Santa Margarita's Cold Stone....

Hope school is going well for ALL THREE OF YOU DARLING LAUDES!!!

It's always a good thing to have something to come home and cuddle up to!! Too cute! And he looks like a perfect fit!! Danielle just got a new pet also, a bunny, Eleanor!

And I highly recommend the Mushroom Jack Fahjitas. I ended up getting take-out since hubby is out of town, Danielle went with her Colleges Against Cancer group and my son is in Cincinnati and went with his buddies! So, we all went out to Chili's...just separately!! I just wish they would advertise more or something, cuz the restaurant was empty! But, hey, it is more than any other restaurant does so I will not complain!

Enjoy your new puppy! Let me know how the potty training goes!! :)

Hi Kelly,

He is just about the cutest little dog I've ever seen! Murphy is the perfect name for him! What kind of dog is he? Tell Shannon that Lauren has that same shirt. Enjoy "Murphy?"

Hi Kelly,

Murphy's a good name and he's a cute dog. Ask if he can come to the infusion center. There was a piece on the local news here last night that said patients who bring pets to chemo get through it better.

Happy St. Jerome's Day (patron saint of librarians and translators).

Murphy is a perfect addition to your family! He's one lucky dog! He looks like a like an adorable stuffed animal! I like Aunt Jenny's idea for a play date, but let's add Oreo to the mix! He'll look huge among the little doggies!

I wish we could have made it to Chili's last night, it just couldn't fit into the schedule. Fortunately, we did get to eat ice cream for a good cause last week (I had to bring Emily's home and put it in the freezer 'til later)!

Love and hugs & a pat for Murphy!

Hey Kelly - oh, Murphy is so very cute and I am sure a fun addition to your family.

How funny you have a dog-cousin named "Oreo." Years ago I started telling unsuspecting techs at the veterinarians' that is what kind of cat Chessie (and now Gabby) was...they are after all, black and white. Sometimes some of them would actually fille that in the form and I am sure they both felt better being a "pedigreed" animal :)

Enjoy Murphy!


Pat (and Gabby of course ^..^)
