grover!

the countdown is on! tomorrow evening, after work, we are going to pick up our new puppy! his name is grover & he's a scottish terrier born on 2/23/09. the deposit has been paid and vet appointment made for saturday, along with a potty training seminar at petco. too bad he won't have his rabies shots by then because one of the local banks is having $5 microchipping on saturday as well. my pet lease has been signed with my landlord, s has a spare key so he can feed the little bugger and let him out during the day while i'm gone. yesterday after my infusion i went shopping with my friend who has a doggy (sprocket!) and we picked up a leash/collar and then she showed me this awesome locally owned pet store where i got a couple treats and toys. last weekend i moved all my furniture and took the rug-doctor to my carpet for the first time since it had been put in when i moved in 7 1/2 years ago. boy, did it need a good (not as thorough as i would've liked) cleaning. i've wanted a puppy for years and specifically a scottie for a couple. done lots of research, on all dogs and the breed specifically. i am so excited & so is s! i couldn't do this without him. i would've gotten a dog a long time ago, but for my work schedule and being away from the house for 9-10 hours on workdays. s will be indispensable because he's in school and can let the little fella out during daytime hours. if need be, i can rush home on lunch & let him out for all of ten minutes before running back to work at the hospital, but this way, he'll get all the attention he deserves! when i get home from work on my own laptop, i'll post the pics i have of grover (if you're on facebook you've already seen them), but expect more to be featured in the future after friday night. 31 more hours. i'm almost down to counting the minutes!
edited to add grover pics!
