So, temporarily I've given up on the idea of getting a cairn terrier. They're too expensive and extremely difficult to find around me, being the reasons. However, my boyfriend and I still thought that my big dog, Cash, needed a buddy since he's home alone all day. So, I kept searching Craigslist.
Finally, on Tuesday, I found puppies that my boyfriend thought were adorable and weren't outrageously priced. There were eight 7-week-old aussie/border collie puppies in the litter. So, we went last night after I got paid and picked one out. By the time we got there, there were only three females left. There was a little all white one, a brown and white one, and an all brown one. We were torn between the all white one and the brown and white one. Turns out that the all white one is deaf (the owners didn't know, but I had my suspicions, so I "tested" her and if she's not completely deaf, she's at least 90% deaf). So, we picked the brown and white one. I told the people that if they can't find the all white one a good home, now that they know that she's deaf, to call me and I have a friend who might take her.
Anyway, we took the puppy with us to go put a vending machine in one of my boyfriend's new accounts (he runs a vending machine business) and she was absolutely perfect! Last night she slept with us and is such a snuggler. Cash isn't entirely sure what to make of her right now and Cosmo (the 6mo cat) watches her and hisses at her if she gets too close, but he hasn't offered to swat at her or chase her.
Without further ado, meet Abby! They aren't great pics 'cuz I can't find my camera charger.
Exploring the driveway when I left for work this morning:
