Meet Mookie

Hello Amazin Avenue!

I've recently adopted a puppy into the household and wanted to share some pics with the community.

Okay, Okay - this is TECHNICALLY a fanshot - so after the jump I will throw in some discussion points that will hopefully help me avoid the chastening. (and get me to the word count limit :P)



...But, without further ado, Meet MOOKIE!

For scale on the last one - I'm about 6'4. Despite this fact - you can see Mookie is blazing the trail ahead of me - just like the namesake! (FWIW he is actually pretty slow for a 4 legged animal, but he is only 9 weeks - give him a break!)




As promised, here are some discussion points:


1. Mookie is clearly a shout out to NBA great Mookie Blaylock...
I had a conversation with a co-worker about what was the best nickname from the '86 Mets for a dog. Mex is a no-brainer for any chihuahua. Thoughts?
2. Share some pics of your critters - yeah puppy! (said like Ronnie Coleman's "Yeah Buddy"
3. What in the world will the Mets do about their lineup this offseason? Lots of Johan cash to spend... On that note - how much would you be willing to put back in his pocket for another season?
