New Kid in Town
Meet Iris. Not Chrysanthemum, not Pansy, not Rosebud (oops that was the name of a sled). Iris is an airedale puppy who has moved in on the Boone-Robinson's. They picked her out in part because she was the most docile puppy in the litter. Mitch was completely confident that this would be her predominant trait. Mitch, hate to tell you but that was the honeymoon period. Enjoy it because it doesn't last long at all. Remember when Eli was a quiet baby. Yeah.
Eve picked out the puppy's name and loves Iris. And this is one smart dog. Do you see that even though she is safe in Eve's arms, she is looking back and has one eye on Eli at all times? (don't we all)
Eli is equally excited about the new family member. Hopefully their combined energy will do the trick and wear them both out .... before Mom & Dad go crazy.
This is what Iris will look like all grown up. They get to be pretty good size (you should check out her paws). Mary is looking forward to having Iris as her running companion. I guess just chasing Mitch around the neighborhood with a frying pan has lost its magic.
Congrats on your new addition. Mitch, let us know when you get the cigars that proclaim, "It's A Puppy!"
