Distracted – In The Best Way!
Why I was too distracted this week to write something new:
I’m a new Mom!
His name is Theo, and he’s eleven weeks old.
Theo is a Lagotto Romagnolo – an ancient Italian breed who is the ancestor to the Standard Poodle. Lagottos are medium sized dogs – about 30 pounds full-grown – who are renowned as truffle hunters. At the current rate of $400 per pound for truffles, I may soon be rich. (Or at least he might eventually pay for himself. If I knew anything about truffles. Like whether they exist in Connecticut.)
He was conceived in Italy and his pregnant mom came over in order to have an anchor baby. Yes, he is a birthright citizen.
As of this afternoon, he weighed in at 9 pounds exactly, but that will probably be 15 pounds by tomorrow. He is eating his adorable little head off.
I am crazy in love.
So I am busy taking online Italian lessons.
I need to be able to understand him when he starts to talk.
He may tell me where the truffles are.
