New Puppy!

We drove to Kentucky today (across the Ohio river) to meet this little Border Collie:

He is the last one left of a litter of 7 puppies born on August 13th. Very sweet and affectionate. Of course, on the way home, we had to do the right thing and break him in to our family. We stopped at Dairy Queen and got some ice cream, for us and for him. I know... I know... nutrition, but like I've said before, not having any fun is bad for you too! :)

He doesn't have a name yet. This has been a long and tiring day for such a young puppy.

A sigh of happiness just escaped me. I still miss my old doggie, but this surely has helped. Lots of work ahead now!


  1. Awwww, how adorable!!!! hope you get some sleep tonight with a *baby* in the house:D

  2. SOOOOOO sweet! I'm so glad you have a new puppy, life is right again!

  3. Exactly! From the time I was 4 years old until now, I've rarely gone any significant time without a dog. I think my college years was the only real break, and as soon as your dad and I got married, and had a home where a doggie was allowed, we had Winnie. I will always miss Winnie too, and Lady, and Pookie, and Happy, and Rosie, and Patches, and Bear, and Mugwump, and George. Sigh.... I like to think that they spend their time with my mom in Heaven and when I get there, I'll be covered with licks and greeted with wagging tails!

  4. It is so cute. Now, time for potty training.
    So glad you have a new dog.


  5. I bet he will help fill the void left when your last doggy passed. He will be a new and fun adventure.
