Meet Kirby!

The animal cuteness factor in my household just rose another 10 notches with the addition of our new adopted Jack Russell Terrier, Kirby.



Are you kidding me? I think I might have two of the most adorable dogs EVER (see Lola on the sidebar to your right).



I know...seriously...SHUT UP!



Kirby is about a year and a half old and came from a high kill shelter in Sioux City, IA that only gives their dogs 7 days and then they're put down. With the help of Midwest Animal Rescue we were able to save him and bring him into our home.

He's been adjusting well, just a few minor aggression issues with toys and food that can be fixed...He's already getting better, plus, he's having his "manhood" taken next week. Poor guy!

He is a cuddler and loves to play fetch, knows how to "sit," "stay," and "release" and he loves to play with his "new buddy" Lola!

I am so excited to have been able to help out and find Kirby a place in my home, now whenever I see those Iams commercials I don't have to go through an ENTIRE box of Kleenex, just a few tissues.

*Squeal!* Kirby is SOOOOOO cute. Please come visit the east coast. We need Lola and Kirby to visit.

And you too!

It's a good thing he likes to play with his "new buddy," Lola, cause you're taking away his favorite buddy: His red rocket.

Those commercials with the dogs in the kennels break my heart too! I think it's Pedigree.
Way to go on the adoption. Did you find him while he was in the high-kill shelter or had he been pulled by another organization because he was so adoptable?

Lately the Sara McLoughlin commercial has really been getting to me (do you know the one?) So anyway, my doggy died several years back, and I haven't gotten the strength to get a new one. Right now I have 2 cats and a baby, but I see dogs in the near future. Like a dozen of them in all sizes...
ps. great recipes!

Are you going to do the Walk for Animals? They look like they are serious walkers! :)
Belle and I will be at the Golden Valley walk.

Barry said...

Yep - those are some cute dogs.

Michael Tragic said...

hey I found you on "Strip Search City" (Darcey). Great stuff, we kind of write the same. Sorry about Tigger :-(

I haven't been by in months, and something made me check-in. Well, I hadn't missed anything!

It's time, once again, for me to bring you out of retirement.
