New Things at Casa Pearl


Friday night, I picked up this guy in Lynn, MA. He's my first new thing this weekend at Casa Pearl as I like to call my house. Obviously, he's made himself right at home in my stitching chair. This is Cowboy and he's a 2 y.o. wire haired Jack Russell Terrier. He was surrendered by his owner at the vets where she wanted to put him down (we won't go into the reasons) when he was saved by one of the employees. He was being fostered in a home with another male JRT which just wasn't working out so his picture showed up on Petfinder.com when I did a search on Wednesday night. I have been thinking about adopting since January but wasn't sure I wanted the commitment of another animal. One look at this guy's face convinced me to take the plunge. He is a really good boy and has settled in quite well so far. We got lots of exercise today and now he's sleeping on the back of my couch in my home office. He's spent the day visually keeping track of all the goings on in the neighborhood - especially that of the cat across the street. He would soooo like to eat him!

The next new arrival came today in the mail and it's the May Essy's Friends. The designer time is Drawn Thread and I really like the design. It is finished as another tin pin but horizontal instead of vertical this time. I love these little pins and have been wearing the other two I've completed to work quite often. I look forward to adding this one to my collection. The time stamp on my camera needs to be adjusted so disregard that if you click on the photos.

What a cutie!! I love his name (as I am partial to cowboys). He looks to have settled in quite nicely. Enjoy your new friend!!

Oh, what a cutie! I love Jack Russells - they've got so much personality packed into such a small body! I hope you'll be very happy together!

I really enjoy your blog and don't think I've left any comments before, but I wanted to say thank you for giving this cute little guy a home. I know adopting a dog is not for everyone, but it's a shame that more people don't consider it. I'm sure you and Cowboy will be very happy together. :)
