i'm a mommy

That's right. To Otis Fitzgerald. A three month old boy pug.

And yes, it was an impulse purchase in the sense that my hubby and I were walking by the pet store and agreed that if they had a pug puppy, we'd buy it.

They did. And so we did.

But we've been wanting a pug for years. Have had his name picked out since the mid-nineties, so that part? Not so impulsive.

A rash decision to adopt a dog a few weeks before we start IVF? Maybe. But I have to say I feel happier and more content than I have in a very long time.

Otis is sweet and smart and oh-so-playful. After being home for only 4 hours or so, he already knows his name, how to do his business on the papers we laid out for him, how to heel on the leash and how to chase the ball (he's still working on the fetching part).
