I'm One of Those People

Hi Blog Friends.  I hope you are having a great long weekend if you are off on Monday.  We are keeping busy this weekend with our new family addition.  Don't worry, I haven't gestated a baby without telling you (although that's what both of our parents thought when we told them)- we adopted this baby boy.
Chino is 2.5 years old and a very well-behaved Shar Pei who was left by his owners at the Marin Human Society because they moved across the country.  He likes naps, long walks, sniffing poles of all kinds, staring down ducks and squirrels, and he might be starting to like us.  He doesn't like loud noises or toys.  He's far too serious for toys.
We are thrilled to have this little guy as our first family pet and it was nice to have him lay by my side as I spent all day sick in bed yesterday.  My new sous-chef says hello;)
