Look who's holding the puppy....

...and it's not me!



The puppy played it perfectly. Snuggled against Greg. Gave him those puppy dog eyes. And then she licked him. He was a goner. This was almost too easy......(just kidding honey if you're reading this!)

*The breeder ended up having a girl available and we will get to take her home at the end of June. She is 4 weeks old and just under 4 pounds. Hmmm....should I send out baby announcements?? :-)

Cedar ... said...

Yes! I'm not laughing about the announcements... when I got a mini poodle years ago I had stopped at local KMart and bought her a baby receiving blanket and a baby saque jacket,... and toys.... They truly are our babies! I'm so thrilled for you and can't wait to hear the name discussion and see "at home" pics!

Goat Creek Grandma said...

Congratulations Shelley! Looks like you have a very smart girl there. :)

So Greg is going to have to team with Marvin or it will be three to one!

Lovely looking pup, BTW.

Who says small animals do not know how to lobby? When I brought home Shadow and Chester as kittens Terry was (slightly) upset. A couple of days of "baby eyes" and now Chester is her constant companion while Shadow "talks" to her all the time. Me? I'm the spare tire around here and only get attention when Terry's away.

Just saw your comment about "The biggest hurdle was getting Greg to agree to let me have this sweet pup!"

HA! I just bet he melted when in the presence of that little pup! Between your soulful "pleading" and those puppy dog eyes...he didn't have a chance.

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Oh so precious little one! She's so sweet and beautiful and obviously VERY SMART ALREADY! What a great addition to your family! Congratulations! I know you can't wait to get her home!

Just a little something from Judy said...

It worked Shelley...it really worked!! Congratulations!! I am so happy for you. I am looking forward eagerly to lots of puppy progress reports, and pictures...lots of adorable pictures, with Loon pictures interspersed. What fun for you and Greg. I am sure she will steal his heart.

Barbara said...

Dear Shelly, The puppy is darling and I am so glad she snuggled up with Greg....can't wait for more pictures. I am happy for you, there is nothing like a little puppy.

Good Luck.

Barbara

Rick and Dianne said...

I'm thrilled for you and Greg. I can't wait until she arrives and you fill your blog with puppy pics! Aren't you guys lucky that a "girl" became available!!!

Best of luck to you, and I'm betting you wish you could bring her home NOW!!!

*walks off dreaming about having a puppy around again...quickly comes to my senses considering we already have 3 dogs*

April said...

Woo Hoo! I am so thrilled for you, Shelley! Finally got Greg to cave! Who could resist a sweet little face like that? She is precious! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Carol said...

Congratulations on the puppy! I think an announcement is appropriate. Are you sure the puppy will be your's and not Greg's?
