I've been holding out on you my peeps and now it is time to spill. A new babe has joined our household and I am completely ecstatic that I personally didn't have to birth her (technically it wouldn't have been a possibility anyway.)
We got wind of some puppies that were looking for a good home and since we I had been talking nagging the hubby (for the past while) about how sweet it would be to add another puppy to the mix, a little sister for our beloved Spencer, this opportunity was too good to pass up.
We initially visited the pack when they were 3 weeks old. It was decided that the J-man would accompany us, as he was going to be the one to do the choosing and the naming. He made his decision fairly quickly choosing the lightest girl of the pack. Followed by naming her Lily, oh how I love her name!
Our puppy preparation included lots of reading and familiarizing ourselves with puppy life. A little puppy proofing, good thing I still have my baby gates and puppy crate. A few puppy toys to keep her company. Some sewing for that just right sized puppy bed to get us through those early chewing days and yes I confess to making a puppy sized rice bag to similate the warmth of siblings during the lonely night.
Monday we brought her home and have been settling in to life with a new babe puppy in the house. Lots of excitement and a little less sleep has us all a bit tired but we are completely smitten. Even our resident alpha dog Spencer doesn't seem to mind the little fur ball. How could he resist? She's that stinkin' cute!
