Well, as you can see by the picture, you know what our big event was today! Isn't he adorable?! And we have a thing for states, I guess LOL. Since our Indiana died right before Christmas, the house has seemed so empty. And even though here's proof that our cat, Zoe, has decided to be a little more approachable after seven years,
we hate coming home with no dog at the door. So DH & I decided to go for it again and we got another golden retriever puppy. His father is English (white) and his mother American (golden), so his coat will be lighter than a regular golden. He's so cute and into everything. It is totally established already that he's a hog and a messy eater to boot. He not only puts both paws in to help him eat, he lays down on the floor to finish! Too funny.
Here's DH with him, me, and then naturally, we had to make a stop at my mom's.
And yes, if you see circles under my eyes, it's because we're losing sleep, either to take him outside or hear a sporadic yelp. He's a little younger, so the trips outside are a little more frequent for a week or so. You know, I'd forgotten about this part... Reminiscent of having a baby in the house, though not to that degree.
I have learned some new information. If you want your children to come visit, get a puppy. Not that we mind the visits, of course. But it is cute to see them rush over to check out the new addition.
All but one have come, and she's coming Sun. from college with her boyfriend and best friend. I'll be sure and post her picture, along with some other things. I've posted about oldest DD's wedding, DS's graduation & soon to be wedding, so I want to post about her, too.
Back to the puppy, interestingly enough, Montana could care less about the cat - totally ignores her. She's all paranoid and will come sniff him when he's asleep, but stays away. I think she still might sit on my lap at night, but we'll just have to wait and see if she thinks we've betrayed her. Poor baby.
On the blogging front, I have been totally shocked this week. I won two giveaways in two days!
Thank you Beth and Sherry. I will post as soon as I receive them in the mail. What fun!
Another thank you to Janet for giving me an award. I know several of you have already done this, so I'll try not to duplicate. I am supposed to list 5 of my addictions and name 5 bloggers who I think are "Fabby."
So here are my 5 addictions:
