Introducing Priscilla Shelby (or Eleanor) Boyd

We went to Chattanooga, TN for Thanksgiving this year to spend the holiday with DangerElf's side of the family. As we were pulling out of town, we saw the CUTEST puppy playing in the grass at the side of the gas station and couldn't resist going over to scrunch her. The owners had driven down from Cleveland just to pick her up and told us all about her 10 brothers and sisters.

Priscilla Shelby (or Eleanor) is that puppy's sister... and the newest addition to our family! We couldn't resist...ESPECIALLY when we found out that the puppies were purebred, but since they weren't REGISTERED they were less than HALF the cost of a purebred!

Here's some more shots of "our girl" as we met her and prepared to bring her home. She is currently sacked out on the couch next to me, heaving enormous puppy sighs of satisfaction. We, however, are exhausted. We didn't get home until almost 2, weren't to bed until around 3, and with puppy and baby Jaime and 2 cats and a 3-year-old? NONE of us got enough sleep. Ahhh, life with babies!

Oh, and her name? We couldn't decide between Shelby and Eleanor for her middle name. See, we LIVE in Shelby county, so you know, the whole LOCALE thing and that's kind of cool... but then there's also the fact that she's speedy and brown and the "best" so maybe Eleanor after the car in Gone in 60 Seconds... What do you think?

Can you believe it? IT IS SNOWING! three inches so far! (But they haven't cancelled school! Crum!
That puppy has got to be the cutest.....I can't wait to slobber on him when I come at Christmas. I got home just as the snow began to fall. Glad you had a safe trip, too.

I like Shelby for the county but then the story behind Eleanor is cool too but wasn't she Blue? I remember the lines more than the movie as the kids have watched it several times while we drive to the river. Give our hugs and love to Ash and babies. We are getting ready for Nic and fam to be here thursday. WE will miss you!!!!!Yes, and how are the kitties handling the playful pup?

Love ya
