Today has been really great. This morning around 11:00 Springsteen got adopted to a very nice family! When the couple met Springsteen they fell in love with him instantly and who wouldn't with those beautiful eyes of his.

Springsteen was real cool too, when he met them. When they reached in to pet him for the first time, he gently wagged his tail and remained very calm, unlike some of the other dogs that get so excited when they meet new people.

Because I was so thrilled about him getting adopted, while I was filling out his adoption papers, I forgot to grab my camera so I could take a picture of his new family. Anyway, keep your fingers crossed, for a few days, for this awesome dog—so his adoption will stick.

This afternoon Tony and I went to Kerrville to eat lunch, because I didn't feel like cooking. "Tony, let's pretend we are on vacation and eat at the Cracker Barrel!" I said. And it was totally fine with him, but he didn't pretend we were tourists like I did.

Our lunch was delicious, but once again, we did not eat the same thing as usual and I think Tony regretted not ordering what I ordered.

After we paid for our lunch I told Tony that I wanted to shop around for a few minutes. And I am so glad I did, because I found the cutest stuffed Chihuahua toy, in a box. "Tony, it looks just like Little Debbie, but it has two eyes and it barks, walks and wags its tail. I've got to get this for Little Debbie!" And I did.

When we got home Tony put the batteries inside, the toy's stomach, for me and then I nicely asked all of our dogs to please go outside for a minute, because I wanted Big Al(ice) and Little Debbie to meet the mechanical Chihuahua.

And neither one of them could figure out that it was a toy. Then I put Big Al(ice) outside with Roy, Belle and Beau, who had been watching all of this, through the front porch window.

Then I grabbed my camera, so I could take a short video of Little Debbie's close encounter of the weird kind and then I quickly posted it on YouTube. And her reaction to the cute, barking, walking, tail-wagging toy was hilarious, because Little Debbie kept trying to sniff its behind. So please click here if you want to watch it.

After I uploaded the video I asked Little Debbie to please pose with the stuffed toy, that we've named Venus. And as you can see Little Debbie wasn't real thrilled about doing it. 

And that is about it for tonight.

Y'all have a great evening!
