Russell has two daddies...



Because my life isn't busy enough, the bf and I are about to become the proud papas of Russell, a Wheaton wire-haired dachshund on his way to points north from a foster home in Louisiana. As you can tell from the picture on the car seat, he appears to have quite a bit of character. The woman from the rescue agency we worked with described him as "a bit of a doofus." He'll fit right in.

If you're interested in adopting a pet, petfinder worked great for us, and the rescue agency who found Russell for us, the Golden Retriever Rescue Lifeline, were really great, and I'd recommend them highly (thanks Melanie! you rock!). There's a special place in heaven for people who volunteer to rescue animals.

Expect ridiculous, gushing updates as we get closer to Russell's arrival in the first week of June.

More posts to follow on things theological...I've been working hard, and just submitted a draft of chapter two to my director. Plus, promised a shout-out to one of my favorite BustedPagani, Rebekah, thanks for reading!

Awww. Congratulations! We have a wheaton shorthair mini dachshund, Wilhelm, who is three years old in June. Welcome to the club. If you need Dachshund tips, I've got plenty.
