Barkley the Shih Apso

So, it looks like we have a name for our little guy... Barkley. The kids had decided on Simon at first but Jake and I both agreed that Simon and Truman sound alike and we didn't want to confuse the dogs. Then I saw online that Harry S. Truman's Vice President was Alben Barkley. Truman/Barkley... get it?! We thought it was pretty funny, and he sort of looks like a Barkley to me. My mom is driving him down tomorrow and the kids are counting down the hours. Poor Truman is going to have his world turned upside down... hopefully for the better.

I love his wonky eyes! LOL, okay, they're not that wonky, just cute. He's so dang adorable, I can't wait to get our little guy. Oh yes, and thanks for pushing me over the edge and making me feel like I had to get one. They're just too cute!

Cute puppy! I have a couple of comments for ya...
First of all I've been wanting to say congrats on the race! You guys are so awesome.

Also, I just found this website & thought of you cause of your post a while back about music for running. www.motiontraxx.com. It has workout music podcasts. I haven't tried them out yet, but it is fast tempo stuff. They have a bunch of different ones that you can download for free.

Sorry for the novel.
