Introducing the Amazing Buster!! but first the whole day.....

Last week a Yorkie Male came up available on Holloman Yard Sales.  We contacted them, and we were too late, another woman was on her way for interview and pick up Buster. Bummer.
Then Sunday, Buster's "dad" contacted us and he wasn't sure if it was gonna work for Buster.  Oh we were all doing the happy dance.  The lady wanted to give one more day to see  if Buster would fit with her dog.

Abby out the chute first, big ol' cheesy grin

So, this morning, was the last day of summer vacation, and we didn't want to sit around the house.  The kids did the yard, and got all their laundry ready for school.  We decided to go up the mountain and play around Ruidoso!
Took the kids to go carts, and for the first time all four could drive all by themselves! It was so fun to watch them! You can click on the pics and they will get bigger? I think!

Anna came second she was a bit more timid, and didn't really get top speed.  Her and Abby both would duck their heads to go in the tunnel. That had me rolling.  My daughters are dorks!
Eric quickly passed Anna, and then Gabriel, who was not amused at that!  I don't think Eric even used his brake pedal, he was flying around the corners.  Probably all the hours spent driving my van and Dad's truck.
**insert here, Eric has his learner's permit and is driving whenever possible now**
Gabriel tried so hard to pass Abby, she would not let him by.  We could see the determination in G's face, and the pure joy in Abby's:
The people running it let them go for a while, and it was a really good time, they took the final lap and went into the garage.  Eric, then Gabe, Anna, and Abby came in and the man is yelling BRAKE! BRAKE! Abby is used to electric bumper cars, where the machine just come to a stop.  So she drove straight into them all. BAM!! Whiplash extraordinaire! Lots of laughter and more excitement about how fun it was.  We decided to keep going past Ruidoso and go see Bonita Lake. We have had so much rain, we hoped it would be full.  We had heard that it was really low. 

It was wicked low! Where the kids and Tony are standing is usually under water! There were a few people fishing and it was HOT! I mean, stagnant hot.  There had just been a bit of a rain storm go through, so the humidity was high.  There were carp just sitting in the lake.  The looked so lazy...Gman wanted to of course use his bow and arrows.  We were smart and didn't bring them, as our G fancies himself quite the nature man, and thinks Bear Grills could learn a thing or two from him, but that is another blog post.
Gabe run down to the water, then back up and then balanced on the wooden fence.  The boy has no energy depletion. 
**he starts football tomorrow, and we are gonna enjoy his stories of the torment the coaches put them through**

 It is now 3ish, I need coffee! 
Back to the town, and we had spotted on the way up a CinnAbon!
I was gonna devour that mass of carbs and sugar along with a coffee of delight!  Anna, Tony and Eric all decided to go with the Cinnabon, G and Abby had Frappe Mocha for G and caramel for Abs.
It was beyond delectable! Hot gooey mess of yumminess! Everyone was happy. I was delirious. Tony jokingly said we better hurry down the mountain before the sugar wore off.  But we had shops to go into.  The kids did not remember Ruidoso at all.  So we went to a few weird ones, and then the candle store.  I love this place, the lady is real nice.  We bought a Yankee smell goodie.  A diffuser with Sun&Sand aroma.  It is like fresh with a tinge of coppertone lotion! Love it!
Then we head for home, no, wait, just one more bathroom stop! Now down the mountain.  We rocked out to Judas Kiss at the highest setting a few times, and cruised into town.
The owners of Buster called.  The lady could not keep Buster, could they bring him to our house? Tony quieted the kids, as I talked with them, giving him our address and directions to our home.  Yes, thank you, see you in about a half and hour.  Click.
A huge scream of YES! Arm pumping and happy noises! Oh we so wanted another dog, and a Yorkie named Buster was exactly what we needed.
They came over and we were smitten, in love and in laughter at Buster and his antics.  Boo was okay, but hey, Boo is a timid dog and not a lover.  Buster will love ya like forever.  The two dogs played and we visited and learned all the fun things of Buster. He does tricks, loves rice and is just a fun baby! After a long visit, the owners, the momma so sad for her, her heart is broke, left and I just wanted to hug her and make it stop, but we know that ache of giving an animal away. 
Here is Buster:
and here is Boo with Buster. The are really fun together, a few growls of play, a snip here and there, but they lay together, and run after toys together.  I love to see them play.

We are pretty excited to add Buster to the family, and look forward to many years of adventures with Buster and Boo!
