PUG LIFE: Parenthood!
Meet Rampage Jackson Berry and Mayhem Miller Berry. Those are just working titles..er names. Himself called me last week from work to tell me a co-worker was adopting a pug puppy and did I want to do the same. He didn't have to wait for my reply. We went to see the little critters on Saturday and we're takin' two!!! I am beyond excited. Except for feeling like I'm cheating on Devlin's memory, I am alive with anticipation. I'm even reading up on how to train puppies correctly. A little tentative that I might be taking on too much but they're soooo cute and small. Calm and assertive, Suz, calm and assertive.
Himself is fixed on Rampage and Mayhem. We follow mixed marital arts. Rampage Jackson and Mayhem Miller are fighters with the UFC. I like the irony of the names, but how does one shorten them into nicknames? It's inevitable. I can't see myself calling them..here Ramp....yo...May...dinner's ready! Doesn't work for me. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm definitely open. Our friend weighed in with some great ones, but I'm just not sure.
I really miss posting! I tried a drawing last night, but hated it. I have 7 paintings going, but keep getting graphic design work with uncomfortably tight deadlines and can't seem to catch up. Not complaining. But I need to paint and post, soon!
