Just got home from a night out with my phone dead so when I plugged it in for recharging I had this urgent-sounding message from me Ma saying to call home. I did and she told me we got puppies!!! Our old dog, a pure-bred Dachshund died a few years back and today my little sisters managed to get the parentals to crack. Two puppies, mongrels I think, one mostly Jack Russell and the other a Jack Russell/Beagle cross. Much smaller than we're used to from before and I dare say far more energetic. I'm going to give my apartment a quick spruce up and head home tomorrow to meet them, get myself imprinted on them so they don't scatter everytime I visit. So happy, I've really missed our old dog and it's going to be so much fun (especially since this time I've long moved out of home and my sisters are both leaving this year the brunt of the toilet training will fall into my parent's responsibility. I'll be able to just have a rumble with the dogs and hand them back when I come back down here.) Pictures and stuff for you all soon. Yay!!
