The voice of reason

So you may be wondering about that super cute puppy in my post from last Thursday. Jan Brady, as cute and soft and puppy-breathed as she was, did not join our family last week. The foster mom who kindly drove all the way from Noe Valley to our suburban abode was actually the one who sort of made the decision for us; when I asked her why she wasn't adopting one of the six puppies herself, she said that with her 1 1/2 year old dog, she felt like she had just finished with diapers and wasn't ready to rush back into house training and obedience and all that. Well put, foster mom lady, and thanks for the wake up call.
