And we thought Lucas was a surprise

On Friday after school, one of my fellow IPES employees calls and says, "Do you want a dog?" One month ago that would have been an easy answer..."No way, not right now." For some reason, JoAnna has been saying, "I want a new dog." and "Lucas needs a pet."

So upon receiving this call, I said, "let me talk with my wife." She replied, "The owners are taking to the pound tonight." "Bring him over," I say.

So, "Fargo" arrived a little while later. And though he was in desperate need of a bath and a trim, we decided that he should be our dog. He is a 3 1/2 year old Australian Silky Terrier...basically a big Yorkshire Terrier.

He didn't respond to Fargo for some reason, so we felt free to change his name. His registration papers say his name is "Cosway His Nibs" (what?), so we figured the appropriate name would be "Cosmo."

And he is the best kind of dog...a free one.

We took him to a groomer today. Nice, huh?

Great dog dude. You're right every young boy needs a dog. I think little boys have a God-given ability to love dogs more than any other humans. Well done.
