Thanks, Lissa, for spreading the news and for all of you who have replied. It's nice to know I'm not talking in the dark.
We're on our way out the door - taking Gus (Robert's Cairn terrior) to the puppy spa and writing down last minute instructions for the kitty sitter. Having livestock is almost as much trouble as having kids! I'll have pics of the 4 new kitties next week after their eyes are open and they're less attached to their momma. We actually found Gus in Houston last year at market while shopping for plants and such for the booth. Wabash Feed & Seed is a unique experience with indoor/outdoor plants, garden decor, puppies, kitties and chicks and even a few antiques. We'll be headed back there this week for more plants and to visit the owner/breeder/puppy daddy of Gus. If you ever want a really good dog, this is the place to go. Although Gus is definitely Robert's buddy, I couldn't ask for a better behaved animal. He has been easy to train, friendly, great with the grandkids and doesn't shed. If he would stay out of my flower beds, he'd be almost perfect.
Robert's ready to go so I'm out of here for now. Talk at ya next week with lots of pics from market.
