Working Hard or Hardly Working?

I don't know which it is....working hard or hardly working. But I am back at work, either way. I get tired more easily. Sometimes I have to take a half hour to lay down on the vacant office couch in the middle of the day. At night, I crash and don't do squat at home. Yet I am making it day by day.

On a personal note, we have a new addition to our pet family. Carlito, a huge fluffy puppy. Ten weeks old and a bundle of fur and chub. We adopted him from the local animal shelter yesterday. He will eventually be a good companion for Gideon. Right now, he's a so-so companion for Taz.

Gideon and Carlito are both mixed with Rotweiler. Gideon is mixed with Lab, and Carlito looks to be mixed with Husky. Maybe not. Either way, he is one of the cutest puppies I've ever seen. Also one of the biggest.
Once he's fully vaccinated, I'm looking forward to getting out with the kids and walking them all. Taz is intrigued at this point, but is outweighed by 20 + pounds. One of Carlito's paws is bigger than two of Taz's put together. They were playing "who's the dominant dog?" last night. Their antics were hilarious. I'll post a photo soon.

I've agreed with myself and Rob that this is truly IT as far as pets go. Unless some little helpless kitten is dropped off at our which case, that would just be fate. Otherwise, our animal posse isn't going to grow anymore. We would have to take on second jobs.

Here's to March getting underway. Spring can't be too far off, can it? I am getting Spring fever, whether the weather wants to cooperate or not.
