New Addition.......

Well, our life has been greatly enriched, once again, by the addition of a new white lab puppy! We were not actually in the market for a new pup, but a friend of mine had this 10-week old bundle of fur and had decided that this was just not the time to add a large breed dog to her young family. She asked me if I would mind taking the dog as a favor to her --- are you kidding?!

Bella came home from school with me yesterday and was immediately welcomed (well....maybe after an hour or so) by Ralf and Jude. Jude has become her surrogate caregiver --- following her around to make sure that she doesn't get into trouble and giving her many deserving licks. Ralf has just decided that he will never be the only dog again.

She does not quite sleep through the night, nor is she house broken -- but she has discovered the doggy door and knows how to use it, so I am hopeful that all will come together in about a week.

Anyway, as you can imagine, I am not getting much done in the way of lesson plans, much less personal reading --- but am sure having a lot of fun.

  4. I am so JEALOUS!! I would smother her little faces in a million kisses if I could just get close enough!

    I love her, Molly! What a beautiful name too. If I had a lab puppy again, you wouldn't hear from me for months.

  6. New puppies are so much fun (and a lot of work!) We have a black labradoodle - who after 5 years still thinks he is a puppy. Congrats!
