New adventures

Well, by this weekend, this little guy will be a new member of our pet family:

His Mama was part of a group of stray Shih Tzus that were picked up by animal control.  Mama gave birth to him and four siblings two days later.  We were lucky enough to be able to adopt him and will pick him up this week.  We are cat people - always have been, so becoming dog people, as well, is a little nerve wracking.  His name is currently Mercury (the foster family named his whole family after Greek or Roman Gods.)  We're changing his name, but we are in family negotiations as to what his new name will be at the moment.  My choice is Oliver (and we'd probably call him Ollie).  We are open for name suggestions.

Oh, and on the way out of the shelter one day I met a persian cat named Muki...I adopted her too.  Yikes!  I have to pick her up today!  Holy moley!  I'm out of pet adopting control!!  I think her name is going to be Kiko (pronounced Key-ko) - Julianna's suggestion.  We'll see.
Welcome along the ride for our new adventure!

I really like the names Ollie and Kiko. I think you ought to stick to them. Nekee showed me the picture of the puppies in MD. They are so cute! You are going to fall in love...trust me!
