A birthday gift for a 16-year-old girl

Sam is turning 16 on August 20 but we gave her the birthday gift of her choice last Sunday.

His name is Twix (after the breakfast cereal chocolate bar, according to Sam) and he’s a pomspitz — a crossbreed of a pomeranian and a Japanese spitz. And, yes, we keep him as far away as we can from Astro. The nice thing about this house is that the lanai is on one end and the garden on the other. Astro rules the lanai; Twix and and cats can sunbathe in the garden during the day and stay indoors during the night.

Twix and the cats? Yes, because Twix is ever so small (and he’s never going to grow any bigger than Pepper as an adult dog) and very mild-mannered (he doesn’t even bark), he and the cats seem to get along alright. No kidding. I can prove it.

Oh, well, at least they don’t try to bite each other’s head off. I should upload a video next time. Of Twix walking. He never seems to walk. Rather, he bounces. :)
