There's a new puppy in the house. . . Can you tell? He's full of curiosity. Abby is not quite sure what to make of him. And neither, quite frankly, am I. I've never had a dog this small. Most of the roasts I cook are bigger than this. But, Emily loves him and that's what matters.
He's a Jack Russell terrier which just poses so many neat possibilities for names. Like Charlie Russell. And Yukon Jack. Or Jack Daniels (is there a theme here?) But the kids didn't "get" any of those, so his name is Coby -- rhymes with Toby. And it doesn't really matter, because he doesn't answer to a name anyway!
