Shadow Shot Sunday - and a Puppy


For lots of other ShadowShots go to HeyHarriet here!


Grand Central Station and the shadow of a building near it.
I'm off to Port Chester by train.


Metro North train speeding along through the Bronx and into Westchester.


I'm heading for Petsmart at Port Chester where Petrescue are having an open house.
I had been in touch with Gwen who has checked our references. 
Our daughter-in-law has a friend who adopted through them.
Well, here he is!


PetRescue is a wonderful organization. 
All the dogs available to good homes were healthy and beautifuly cared for.
 Sophie and her mother who had fostered and loved our little guy were very sad to see him go.
Who can blame them? We haven't finally decided on a name.
I sort of favor Buster. Hmm......suggestions?
 


He prefers the sofa to his crate.....wouldn't you?
He has mastered the art of asking R. if there are any
little left over pieces of toast.

  1. The puppy looks so cute and will keep you and R busy going up and down to let him out. I guess you plan to stick around NY for a while.

    Have fun

  3. You will be putty in the paws of this one.....He is lucky and so are you. Buster is a god dog name. I once had a student whose name was truly Buster Brown, he was full of beans.

  5. I'm totally smitten! What a little cutie he is! Congrats on the new addition to your family. I like the name Buster. It's kind of cheeky sounding. And this little doggy looks cheeky. In a good way! You guys are so going to spoil Buster big time :)

    I'm so happy you finally have a dog!

  12. His face is pure sweetness- I'm in puppy love. I like Buster- like the little dog in the Buster Brown shoe ads- but I like Chester, too - since he came from Port Chester.

  14. what a beauty! I am so in love with that little pooch. ( it's a total set up- they worm their way in , you can not leave them, they get old and die and break your heart....and then we do it again, go figure) Good luck with "Buster"- I had a border collie one time named Buster- he was very naughty and killed all of the baby pigs.

  16. Ah...the joys of puppyhood. Yes, housebreaking, crate training, puppy breath, being needed...have fun and learn lots!

  17. What a cute dog! How about a train-related name? "Conductor" or "Choo-Choo" or even "Thomas" (the Train!) Have fun!

  20. I missed the post where you must have talked about deciding to get a puppy I must look back because we are complete doggy nutters in this household.

    I love your little Buster and may you still find time to blog - although I know him and his toys will come -quite rightly - first.

  30. Hi Elizabeth, I send D'Ora's best greetings from Vienna to little Buster in New York. She thinks that Buster is a nice name for this cheeky looking little rascal and she likes the cute guy from the spot :)
    Next time, she wants to take me for her walk to Central Park :))
    Have a great time with your puppy, he's sooooo sweet!
