Saturday September 24, 2010-Bentsen Palms Village

We have a new addition to our family, a 6 month old puppy named Tramp. We came to the Don-Wes flea market to show it to Tommy and Susan and luckily for me, I found one of the people that run a booth there had three puppies and we took one of them. He is a Chihuahua/Poodle (is that ChiPoo or PooChi?) mix. Being only six months old, he hasn't had his shots or any kind of veterinarian testing done yet but as soon as we can get him to a vet, he'll be all checked out.

We started our day by taking Tommy and Susan to Gonzales Burger for lunch. We have eaten here several times before and just because it is the off season for winter Texans, they still serve some of the best burgers you've ever eaten. The meat is about a 3/4 pound patty and cooked to perfection. T & S were very impressed. We learned that many of the attractions that we wanted to show them were either not open or had been closed due to high water in the Rio Grande river, so we're going to miss several interesting sights here. They will have to come back with us one day during the peak season.

After lunch, we went to the Don-Wes flea market which is mostly closed because there are so few people to shop there. This is where we adopted Tramp, so the rest of the afternoon was spent trying to find doggie stuff for him. We got him a doggie bed and a very small collar, but no leash as yet.

We came back home and ate a great supper that Tommy had brought us of steaks, baked potatoes and all the trimmings. We also introduced Tramp to his new home. Cassie freaked out when she first saw him, but they are getting on just fine now. So far he has been taken out on a leash several times and does his business every time. He has started to eat and drink but we'll have to get him his own dishes because Cassie doesn't want to share. It's going to be a learning process with a puppy to train and to get used to. Wish us luck...

So long.

Cute puppy! It looks like he was posing for the picture. Wish I was there - I have extra leashes in the motorhome. I bought a new doggie bed for Sammy but he woudn't use it so I just took it back to WalMart the other day. What we do for our pets!
