Puppies have two speeds!!!
On or off! Its been 12 years since we've had a baby bundle of fur in the house. I had forgotten how much work these little treasures are, OMG. She's been here for two nights, both with me sleeping on a blow up mattress in the living room next to her. I won't even go in to the lack of sleep the first night at the motel! To borrow a phrase from Krys, my eyes feel like they have cornflakes in them, and I'm exhausted! Yikes. And I am reminded....it is allllll worth it.
I feel whole again!!
My heart is starting to heal the empty, open wound, from the loss of sweet Chester. But WH and I know Chester would LOVE this doll. This is Maddie, doesn't she look like a Maddie? She is so dang smart at nine weeks. I am extremely impressed with the Havenese breed, even better than everyone let on. If you haven't seen one, maybe you can find a friend that owns one.
There were three rowdy boys at the house today, ages 5 to 9. Wild, playing, roughing it up. She was right in there having a ball with them, my jaw dropped in amazement.
She's taken outside to go potty every hours or so, and when she cant' make it, goes on the wee pad. Now is that a gifted girl or what?
Here is ON. Here she is with her new toy from Auntie Diana, a green froggy that squeeks. Plays with it constantly. Hard to get a picture that isn't blurry.
Here is OFF! I was attempting to look at the computer this morning and had a lot of help. Notice the list of names on the paper. I can take that off now, she's definitely a Maddie, or Madeleine (French version!).
Wish me luck tonight. Going to try to get back into my bed. My back needs it, my head needs it and boy do my eyes need it! Did I tell you she weighs 2.6 lbs. and gives sweet doggie kisses?
I'm in LOVE again.
