Wolfsbane - Plant or Puppy?

The most amazing thing happened yesterday!  You might remember I mentioned I tried to adopt a puppy - Curry (one of the spice pups) from a rescue while I was recently visiting in Virginia.  She is a husky/Labrador mix and something about her picture just said, "pick me!"  So I tried, but it wasn't meant to be. 

Not one to give up too easily I continued to correspond with the rescue group.  I offered to adopt the mother - Jupiter, but she was already adopted too!  Her story sounds like a sad one - she spent most of her life chained to a porch.  Then she had this litter of puppies and the owner decided to give up the mother and the puppies.  Only, she didn't turn over all the puppies - she kept three now known as Pepper, Coriander and Wolfsbane. 
I had been corresponding with the rescue via my gmail account - one I don't check very often.  Well, I just happened to check it the other day and there it was!  An email asking whether I would be interested in any of these three new puppies?  OMG!  Interested, I went crazy.  So, you can probably guess from the title of this post, which puppy I chose - Wolfsbane!  Not sure I love the name but we can work on that after we meet. 

To me, he is just the cutest.  Oddly, I wanted a female puppy but after hosting Pete this last week, I was really feeling like a little boy puppy would be okay.  I know, there are puppies everywhere!  And believe me I've been looking diligently with the help from a few of my friends (Pam Fore, Lisa Dietrich, Kathleen Flammia, Gayle King and a few more).  But, I really felt like I had a weird connection to this litter and now it is actually going to happen.

So here's the plan - I fly to Baltimore, MD on Friday (next), pick up the puppy on Saturday morning and fly home on Sunday!  Guess who will be coming to work with me on Monday???
