Our friends John and Michael ...

... have a new dog, too! He's not a puppy who chews things up and breaks things ... he's a Greyhound who used to be a racing dog and now he's just going to be a regular dog.

Here's John's blog about his arrival. They say that it takes a little adjusting from race-dog life to regular-dog life, but it looks to us like he's adjusting pretty well!

Welcome to regular dog life, Festus! You're gonna love it!

Love, Luna & Juno!

Luna's teaching me the ropes around here ...

How'm I doin' so far?

First the synchronized couch sit ...

Followed by the synchronized snooze ...

Stay tuned for more of our "Sister Act!"

If we could just get the puppy to RELAX a little more ...

Hi there ... I'm Juno ...

... and this my first time putting something up on this blog.

I've been here a week now in my new house with my new family and I think it's going pretty well. Today I decided to pitch in and help out ... here I am helping my mom sort through the clothes that are going out of the closet and over to "Out of the Closet" ... the thrift store that sells stuff to help people with AIDS.

Stay tuned ... I'm sure I'll have more to say later! (But right now it's time for another nap.)

The Olympics may be over ...

... but we still have floor exercises going on at our house:

I think we get a Perfect Ten ... what do you think???

(And yes, she IS sleeping through the night now ... thank goodness!)

So it didn't go so great last night ...

"The Puppy" decided this was the night she was NOT going to go to sleep like she was supposed to in her crate.

While my one mom just pulled the covers up over her head and tried to sleep anyway (good luck with THAT!!! ) ...

... the other one couldn't resist getting the sound effects "on the record."

So here's a peek into how much fun WE had last night ... here's hoping tonight goes better!

So how IS the puppy getting along with the cats?????

A lot of people have been asking about how Juno is getting along with the cats. We figured if a picture is worth 1000 words then a video is probably worth about 10,000 ... check it out:

Look what the stork brought to OUR house!

Last night, when my moms got home from the movie they went to see ("Brideshead Revisited" ... not as good as the book or miniseries but they liked it anyway) they came home to a BIG surprise ...


Turns out they were less surprised than I was ... they at least new she was coming because it turned out they'd been talking to Chuck up at Husky Camp (that's where I came from) and they had two rescue puppies (a boy and a girl) who were Malberians (that's 1/2 Malamute and 1/2 Siberian) who needed a home.
So they decided on the girl ... and I guess they were going to tell me EVENTUALLY ... but they thought they had a little time to break it to me because they were going to go pick her up from Chuck. And lo and behold Chuck showed up at the front door and dropped her off to save us a trip!
Life as we knew it officially ended at 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 19th.
So we hurried up and got a bed ready for her (the crate was sill needing cleaned out after being stuck back in the garage since I outgrew it) ...

She still had stiches from getting spayed (I'm sure glad I was too young to remember all that!) so she had a bandage around her belly.

I'm honestly not sure quit WHAT I think about all this and I'm giving myself a little time to get used to the idea.
Don't get me wrong ... I like the idea of someone to play with and I believe them when they tell me the reason they wanted another dog was because I'm so fabulous that they want another sweet one like me. And I know no other dog will ever replace Harvey but I do get lonely being the only dog sometimes ... and she IS pretty cute ...

But she's going to have to learn a thing or two ... and thing NUMBER ONE is that this is MY chaise lounge ...

and it's going to stay that way.

24 hours down ... a lifetime to go. Stay tuned!
PS -- What did we name her???? Oh yeah ... Juno.
And -- BTW -- August 19 would have been my Grandma Betty's birthday so I'm wondering if she didn't have something to do with the timing on all this, being a puppy person and all!
You never know!!!
