Meet our newest member of the Galey family! Brinkley joined our family on Saturday when we stopped to see a new litter of puppies being sold down the street. Mindy quickly fell in love with him, so even though we weren't planning to get a dog till Christmas, we couldn't resist taking him home. He is an 8 week old miniature Schnauzer who is extremely shy yet very playful.
We named him after the 1960's news program Huntley-Brinkley. For those of us who weren't around during that time, Chet Huntley was a news correspondent in NYC and David Brinkley reported from Washington, DC. The program aired on NBC before the Nightly News was introduced. Since we both work in news, we wanted to name our new puppy with something appropriate and thought Brinkley was a subtle tribute to our industry and our beloved Washington, DC!
Even Mindy's Aunt Di, who isn't a dog person, thinks he's adorable. This is the first time any of us have ever seen her kiss a puppy!
He's perfect except for one minor flaw. He's not house broken...yet!
