I hang up the phone after talking with Fleegle’s breeder, Suzie.
“So what did she say?” Fleegle asks, his front paws bouncing on the floor next to my desk. “Has my parents’ matchmaker been busy making matches?”
“Um, yes. She has a litter right now with a yellow female available.”
Fleegle darts to the garage. “Let’s go, Raud.”
“Hold up. She’s too young to leave her mom and the puppy nursery. Suzie says she needs to fatten up first.”
“Well then, what are you waiting for? Call the pizza joint and have them deliver an extra large ‘meat special’ to the puppy nursery. Pizza has done wonders for your waistline.”
