Love is...

The joy that only a puppy can bring!

Yes indeed, I never truly realized how much responsibility it took to welcome a puppy into the family! We've always had dogs growing up but we never really had to do anything with it, our parents always took care of everything. So when Mr. J repeated the prep talk for the umpteenth I thought he was exaggerating. By Day 2, I had to take a nap in the afternoon, thank goodness it was the weekend!

First hour home, so timid and quiet.

Daddy comforting the little bug on her first night sleeping in the crate.

Next morning, it was my duty to take her potty at 5.30am and she refused to get into her crate and her Daddy who previously insisted that no dog was getting in our bed, plopped her on a towel in bed!

Yawn... it's so tiring being a puppy!

Afternoon nap after a full morning of exploring her new home!

Driving around with Grandma during her visit!

Happy family :)

Thanks for the pretty dress Grandma!

Ready to go for a walk with Daddy.

Anyhow, our little bug is finally happy with sleeping in her crate and only wakes up once at about 5.30 am to go potty. I’ve not seen her for 2 weeks as I have been out of town for work but Mr. J tells me how smart and quick she is to learn things.

This pic was taken yesterday, my how she's grown, I'm counting down the days before I get to hold her again!

My sister K, noted that I've been so quiet with posts, now you know what we've been busy with! We had an enjoyable 4th of July with the family at a mountain top cabin, it was great to regroup and re-energize, I will have some pics to post soon.

How was your 4th of July?
