Because we didn't have enough to do. . .

This is Georgia.  Our new dog.  Yes, you read that correctly.  When we brought all of our donation goodies to the animal rescue after Jack's birthday, I saw her and couldn't stop thinking about her.  We went back last weekend and this week we are fostering her for the week.  Um, there's not a snowball's chance in hell she's going back.  She's such a sweet girl, and we all love her.  We had a couple of rough patches with Max showing some signs of food aggression, etc. but that has virtually disappeared. 

I think we will rename Georgia.  We've kicked around a few names, but Ruby seems to be the favorite.  Yes folks, Max and Ruby.  If you have preschool children, you're laughing your ass off.  Why? 
Max and Ruby are perhaps the most irritating preschool show around with a theme song that will get stuck in your head for days.  Don't believe me?  Google it.  The show is a bossy big sister bunny and her trouble making little brother.  Oddly, they have no parents and this disturbs my husband to no end.  However, all of my kids have been obsessed loved this show at one point and they really, really want to name her Ruby.  We've kicked around a couple of other names:  Maggie (Chris' suggestion, because he thinks a dog named Maggie Simpson would be a riot), Milly, Mary. . . Ruby seems to be the winner.

And really?  Can we discuss when I became a dog person?!

LOL! All I can hear is Ruby's annoying voice calling out, "Maaaaxxxx."

We don't have a dog so I can't help you with name suggestions. Our cat's name is Molly Mae though.
