Well, we’ve added a new member to our family—a six week old puppy! Hubby brought him home the other day, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
She is really sweet, a mix of everthing, really, but she definitely has sharpei in her, because of her cute little wrinkly face. She ought to be about 40 lbs at the largest (knock on wood), and she prances around wagging her tail, sometimes chasing it. She already loves “her people” (a.k.a. the girls and hubby) chasing after everyone as they walk around.
DD1 is absolutely relieved she didn’t have to wait until DD2 was in kindergarten—a mere few months away. I had prepared DD1 that it would be a while, that we wouldn’t get our puppy the first DAY of kindergarten for DD2, because we’d all have to get used to the new schedule and be able to make a nice routine. DD1 repeated this to all her friends and aunties, lamenting the fact that DD2 wasn’t older and that we would have to wait…
Well, cut to Sunday afternoon, Hubby came home from work with our cute little G (girls named her) in a crate in the back of his car, and the rest is history. It’s only day 3, but we are all in love with her.
Sometimes, my heart is so happy and full, and I am just in awe at how thankful and lucky I am. Today is one of those days.
