I started my January off by getting a puppy. It has taken me a week to get to the computer. She just doesn't like my office. I have her in here right now. So this has to be a fast post.
As I was looking through my pictures, this morning. This is the dog I wanted. Every time I saw a black and white puppy, on Instagram or on Facebook that was what kind of dog I took pictures of, how weird is that? Its just taken two years to find one. After Sasha left my life, I really couldn't even begin to want a dog. Then slowly I just started realizing I can't live without a dog. My whole life I have had a dog. There was a hole in me a mile wide.
She was born in October. The lady who had the puppies, put them on FaceBook and I followed along. That was it. I kept looking for a dog in the SPCA and places like that, but all that seems to be out there are German Shepherds and Pit Bulls. I didn't want a big dog. Then I got sick and November came. She was still posting pictures. I told myself maybe if that dog is there after Christmas I will go look. Christmas came and went then New Years. I decided she must be sold now, maybe next year. She published pictures last Friday. She was still there. The lady had halved her price because now she was 11 weeks old. Ron called and we drove out to see her on Saturday Morning.
So I have been in puppy mode for a week. She is learning about us and we are learning about her and since I have never crate trained a dog, that was new. She has done wonderfully. We are working on the house training and leash training. She is doing pretty good. Max seems happier having another animal around. I was really a lazy bum. Getting up and going out in the cold is good for me. Plus just being lots more active. I have not picked up a hook nor even thought of a project because being a puppy, she really doesn't sit still very long. That is why all of the pictures I have are when she briefly sits at my feet.
Going through my pictures to find Polly puppy pictures. (say that 3 times fast.) I found this one I took last summer of Miss Buggy. Now that they have finally announced it to the public, I am going to be a grand mother again. The new baby will make 14. That was what I kind of alluded to in my last post. I was so excited but I couldn't say anything yet. It will make 6 children for Ben and Megan, and Kessie and her husband have 7 children. Then William has a son. Only one lives in here in town.
So thank you so much for stopping by, this was a fast post. Hopefully I will be able to get some better photos.
Its time to take her outside again.
