Fur Family

We added to our fur family this past weekend. We decided our dog Vinnie needed a friend. I thought that a dog of similar size or breed would be ideal and while Chuck agreed he wanted a cat. So we comprimised and got both.

We found this little guy via a rescue group (similar to how we got Vinnie) and after a few emails they put him on hold for us. We just had to drive to Rockwall to adopt him. Totally worth it. He's the same kindof mutt as Vinnie - half chihuahua, half Italian greyhound. Naturally he got an Italian name from the cast of My Blue Heaven also.

While I scoured the DFW area (via petfinder.com) for Vinnie's little brother, Chuck searched Craig's List for cats. He sent several emails and got no replies until finally we heard that this little guy was ours! His owner had just rescued him but her new apartment didn't allow pets so we stepped in. He's in pretty bad shape but with a little love, some fattening up and lots of attention from Ruby I think he'll be a great cat. I'm really warming up to him quickly. We didn't think he should be part of the Italian dog mob so we chose a name from another favorite movie, The Fifth Element. A must see if you haven't already.
