It's been a really long time since I've done a New Thing. (Or at least since I've blogged about doing anything new.) Well, yesterday I got a New Dog. Her name's Gia (it was her given name and even though she's named after a heroin addicted model, I've totally warmed up to the name and love it now), she's a schnauzer mutt, and I'm totally in love. When we first met her, she was kinda shy, but as soon as we brought her home, she was like, "damn, you've got a big yard, I'm really gonna like it here, rub my fuckin' belly, bitch," and she hasn't stopped wagging her tail since she got here (I'm not exaggerating) and I've been her bitch ever since (yeah, I know, "ever since" doesn't really mean much when "ever since" is referring to yesterday, but still) and it's so much fun to have another dog in the family. (I think Coco would approve.)
Here are some photos. The first two are of Gia at the dog rescue person's house, when we first met her:
This next photo is Gia sitting on my step-dad's lap, on the way to our house. Look at how happy she is (and she hasn't even seen the yard yet).
