Well, fur baby that is! As a consolation prize for having to go back to work (and daycare), we got a new doggie the night before school started!
Her name is Nikki, and she's about three years old, which is perfect because it means she's old enough to let me rough-house with her, and she knows better than to rough-house back.
She's my new "weeeeelllly BIG doggie" and she can be as tall as Daddy when she wants to be.
But when we're just hanging out, she really likes to curl up into a corner and relax...sometimes you forget she's even there!
