Eric and I adopted our first puppy last month. She is a Pitbull/American Staffordshire mix, and she was 8 weeks old when we brought her home. We agreed on the name Fibi, primarily as a tribute to the Fibonacci number sequence--(1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, ...)--because Eric is a mathematician, so of course it follows that math permeates everything in our life, right down to the dog. :) I also like to think of it as a tribute to Phoebe on "FRIENDS." :) She is now 13 weeks old and an adorable mess. She has learned some things quickly (even in a matter of minutes), and then there are things we've been trying to teach her for five weeks and she just looks at us like we're crazy. She's thrown a crazy kink in our routine, but I'm pretty sure we would be sad without her. Here are a few shots of her in her favorite place--a sunny spot in the backyard.
