Dog Day (Afternoon)

Meet Daisy!We picked her up Friday and we are in love! She is a playful, smart, goofy, clod-hopping puppy who does not seem to have a moment of anxiety - even after the entire neighborhood was out to greet her upon our arrival. She just bounced sideways around the grass playing, chasing the kids, and rolling onto her back to have her belly rubbed.


As expected, HRH is the careful big brother, making sure her water bowl is full, speaking softly to her, and pulling Legos and other tiny items from her mouth. Gremlin is Gremlin; loving her HARD and needing to be reminded that she is just a baby.

Andy and I finally shooed the boys off to bed Friday night then lay on the floor, playing with her. It was all fun and games until she found an old toy of Maddie's, which was a total downer.
Circle of life, right?


She does eventually run out of gas but after a quick puppycatnap, she's up and at 'em! We're so happy you're here, baby girl.

It's gotta be hard to miss your sweet Maddie, but you sure did pick an adorable new friend. That tennis ball is as big as her head!

So I'm on Bossy's site and all the sudden I'm yelling, "That's my friend, Christine!" Okay, maybe not yelling, but excited nonetheless.

Absolutely adorable. I will not get a puppy, I will not get a puppy, I will not get a puppy ;-)

I just found your blog, from stalking other mommy blogs. I love the puppy photos. We had to put ours down in October and I am trying to convince my hubby that we can love another, your photos might help
