Grace and I picked Pearl up at the airport last week, at United's Cargo terminal. Grace asked me, "Mom why are we here with all these truck drivers?" Picture Grace holding the empty pink collar and leash she had selected for Pearl (see photo).
From snowy Colorado to 90 degrees in Arlington, Pearl has adjusted quickly to life in the Derderian household. The breeder asked me "do you want a male or female?" I told her I did not care at all, but I wanted the one with the 'mellowest positive energy' (Thank you Cesar of "Dog Whisperer fame for that advice). We we may actually have gotten what we ordered as she seems to be a fairly reasonable, calm terrier...almost unheard of! JD seems to be the most smitten, which is fortunate because once again he has the early shift (which includes, of course, Clay).
