hUmp DAy

Is it already Wednesday? The time is just flying by. Not enough hours in the day.....and all that jazz. I had to be at work early today so I was out of the bed way before the crack of dawn. This morning makes 2 straight nights of Miss Patty NOT peeing in her crate. She is doing so well. I absolutely love to get her out of her crate in the morning. I just don't think I have ever seen anything so happy! She wiggles and twists and grunts like nobodies business. She is so incredibly happy to see someone! She goes right out and does her business then follows us in the house.

This morning I was the first one up so I let the girls out. When they came back in Patty was hungry so I fed her. She was eating out of her bowl and kept looking back to see if I was there (I had sat down on the floor beside her). Every time I would barely touch her she got so excited she didn't know what to do. She would stop eating and just wiggle all over. Then she would start eating again. I touched her again and she wiggled even more looking at me with those precious puppy eyes.

I hated to leave this morning as I really wanted to spend the rest of the morning playng with them. Sophie is starting to play quite a bit with Patty. Sometimes she even runs away from Patty's sharp little puppy teeth. She will jump up on my bed where the pup can't get just to catch a break! It is truly entertaining.

I am so grateful for this little bundle of joy that has come into our lives. I see a sparkle back in Sophie's eyes that had been missing for a number of weeks. I also see a sparkle in our family's eyes and spirit that had been gone for a while.

Sounds great , I don't have pups , but I tell you it's tough on my early mornings to leave the boys , Winston, and Skeeter ,both trying to convince me to lie on the bed and give endless tummy rubs

What a beautifully maked doggie. Puppies have a way of bringing in whole new life of smiles. Enjoy.

So happy there's a pup in your lives and I'm especially thrilled for Sophie. She needs puppylove so badly.
