Scout

I went to visit Scout today! Gosh I had missed her! She weighs 7 lbs now and has gained confidence to defend herself against her larger littermates. (Scout is the runt of the group - but not by much.) Her one brother was being too rough so Scout gave him a chomp on the leg to let him know he had reached her limit - he yelped and left her alone. (Good girl!)

Here she is playing! She was giving the dog breeder's daughter a little nibble on the hand. Can you see the smile on her face?







And here Scout is posing very prettily with her new toy I dropped off for her. I will bring this toy back with me when I bring her home and that way she'll have a toy with the smell of her littermates to bring her comfort.








June 27th is the day she joins our family! I know Marvin the cat will love her - I'll just have to work extra hard with Scout to make sure she doesn't chomp him! I'm not too worried - the Bernese Mountain Dog is known for getting along with dogs and cats so I'm sure her and Marvin will be buddies in no time!




P.S. I'll try not to drive you too crazy with all these dog posts! I created a blog for Scout - but please know that you do not have to visit that blog. (Leedra & Betsy especially, I'm wearing them out with my 100 other blogs - lol!)

She is TOO CUTE for words. You are going to have such a good time raising that little girl. And please, don't stop with the photos. I'm sure NONE of us are getting sick of her beautiful little face. :)

Congrats on the new addition!

Just a little something from Judy said...

Thank goodness Scout is photogenic,because living with you that would be a requirement. She looks so adorable and poses so perfectly!! I look forward to seeing her grow up through your blog.

Leedra said...

Well, I didn't know you had added another one when you left that comment. The new one I will probably skip. Scout is cute, so once a year I might visit just to see how she is doing. :)

Oh Holy Cow! You could never post too many pictures of her. My GOSH she is cute!
I see a new line of "items" with some new pictures on them popping up in your store that'll be INSTANT hits with all of us! LOL
I hope it's as easy as it sounds, introducing an old cat to a new puppy. LOL! Good luck with that!!!

She is so cute. The 'new' cat will wear off after a while...of course for a puppy a 'while' can be a few months. Start talking to Marvin about it now...

Hi Shelley:
I know I won't get tired of reading about Scout. I love animals and love to hear how she will fit in. Bet she will want to ride in the kayak with you.
Those puppy sharp teeth will keep you on your toes.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Shell----I love ALL of your blogs.. Don't know how you do it though. I have a hard enough time keeping up with ONE. BUT--you are younger than I am ---so maybe I'm just not as FAST as you anymore!!!!! ha ha

Cute pictures of Scout.... I cannot wait 'til you bring her home. Poor Greg will have to sleep on the couch!!!! ha

Love you,
Bets
