Puppy Fever

Well, my bestie Melissa just got a puppy!!! He's a mini Schnauzer and he is absolutely adorable! She and her husband have decided to call him Oliver, and I think that name fits him. =) So cute!!

Eric & Oliver

So, the "puppy fever" is making me miss this guy:

And it is also making me want to get Jasper an Alice. =) Lol!

We named Jasper after one of the characters from the Twilight books. Originally, we wanted to get a boy and girl at the same time and name them Jasper and Alice. But, that didn't really work out for us and we ended up getting a boy so we named him Jasper. With Jasper still in NC, I'm not really sure whether we should get another dog while he's gone. I want them to get along, so getting "Alice" while he's not here sort of makes me nervous. On the other hand, it would kind of be nice to have some company in the house. 

Joe and I walked to the PX this afternoon and on our way out saw a sign for an adoption fair this weekend. I'm not sure if it's at the PX closest to us or not. I guess we'll find out! I want to go, but again I'm just not sure. Plus, if we find a dog we like we can't even keep it with us until we get a house because no pets are allowed here. What to do, what to do?

I guess you could say that our stay on the island has started out well. Other than the fact that I can't shake this dizziness. I bought some Meclizine at the PX today, but I'm not sure if it's really helping. That and we don't have a car. Seriously, that has got to be the worst part of all of this. *sigh* Oh well!

Don't forget about the giveaway! 11 more followers and 2 days to go! Help me out and get an extra entry. =) {It's all about incentive, right?!}

 Happy hump day!

Well, I have to tell you the week we landed in Hawaii...we didn't just get a dog, we got two! We snuck them in and out of the Airport Hotel..not an easy task...then, we found out we are allowed to have pets! ha! A little fun piece of info...when you do get Jasper there is a GREAT dog park in Pearl City (I dont remember the road, but ask around) and in Miliani Mauka. Take the Mililani Mauka exit, take a left at the first light (you'll see McDonald's on the left) and then take the first left between a field and apartment complex....you'll pass a mini shopping center and mcd's on the left and the park is immediately after on the left. :) We loved it there. And if you ever see a lady with realllly short hair and three HUGE dogs that's my BEST FRIEND PAM! haha

Anyway, I think you should wait until Jasper is there so he doesn't show up and you've already gotten him a playmate. I don't know how he does with change, but it could be a stressful situation for him. On the other hand, you know him better and if he's an easy going pup he might appreciate the playmate. Best of luck on your decision and enjoy your doggie hunt.

I have a boy Miniature Schnauzer, and he is absolutely amazing! They are such cute and smart dogs! You are like the 2nd or 3rd person to post that someone got a new puppy, and it was a Miniature Schnauzer. Hubs and I have been considering getting a 2nd one, a girl this time, but the shipping cost is outrageous per dog. Hmm? I think these posts may be signs for me.... :)

By the way, your dog is very precious. He looks so sweet and innocent!
