Thurston Howell the Fourth

Thurston Howell the Fourth (our first really, but to keep it in line with Gillgian's Island) came to live with us yesterday.
I discovered him via the internet last Thursday at Caring Hands Humane Society.
Bruce was in Dallas.
I was in Loneliness, USA.
And the rest is history because now he's ours.
Does it matter that he and his brother were found in a box turned upside down on a busy street? 
Does it matter that the box said, "Saint Bernhard" on it?
The vet insists that he is a Shih Tzu and a mix of something else, but NOT Saint Bernhard.
Look at that face.
One of our neighbors took one look at him and said, "That looks just like Beethoven."
Is that why this guy's body language looks nervous to me?
No matter.
Thurston's part of the family now.
For better or Shih Tzu/St. Bernhard.


  1. OH my goodness, he's adorable! so exciting. :)

  2. Congratulations!! Darn the power of puppy powers, it will get you every time, believe me I know:)

  3. "mom, that puppy of Talia's is so cute"
    "mom, can we go see the puppy again?"
    "mom, do you think that puppy...."

    so many times today i've lost count. suffice to say, if it's a big dog, it's welcome over here at the Funkyhouse.

  4. Congrats puppy owners! My boys are itching to come back over.

  5. It looks like Thurston had quite the welcoming party yesterday! Very cute!

  6. bruce is laughing that nervous laugh...
    and you my friend, better put away every pair of shoes that you love.
    don't say i didn't warn you!

  7. Ahhhh...can't wait to meet him! He is so cute! How's the potty training going? If you get any inside info on how to get your dog to stay in the yard please let me know :).

  8. There's nothing like a dog to make a house a home. I love being greeted when I walk in the door. You'll love it too! Congrats!
