This has been a busy week --- lots to accomplish at school before spring break. I currently have 4 different classes working on research papers, which means that I will eventually have to grade all those papers - ugh! Anyway, I am going to pick up some books at the library tonight and then I plan to write a Library Loot post tomorrow.

In the meantime, I had someone request updated pictures of our newest addition and I must say that I am more than happy to oblige. Bella now weighs about 28 pounds (she is quite the porker) and is 90% potty trained (yippee!! --- now when the weather gets nicer I can have my carpets cleaned). She is still nipping at heels, toes, fingers, and any loose clothing, but I anticipate that to stop once her "big dog" teeth come in. She and Jude have truly bonded and have the typical love/hate relationship you would expect with any siblings. She has absolutely no idea that she is not as big as he is.

This is a picture of all 3 of them. Unfortunately I couldn't get all 3 looking at the camera, but the fact that they are all still is a major miracle. This is in the living and Ralf is at his perch: looking at the window protecting us from any would-be prowlers. Jude is chill-axing on the floor, and Bella is just being plain cute.

I will apologize for my poor picture quality. I took this on a whim - and I am not adept at photoshop. This is on my list of things to do ---whenever I have the free time to do them.

So....Amanda....this post was for you. Now, if you would like to return the favor, can I stow away in one of your suitcases to where ever you plan to travel with your daughter???


  1. Bella looks like she is anticipating a great treat!

  2. Your dogs are beautiful and they all look huge to me. Our dog is 13 and weighs around 14 pounds.

  3. She's a magnificent specimen. Her name suits her very well too, she is truly beautiful.

  4. Thank you Molly! What a beautiful angel face... I love her!

    Maybe after I buy a suitcase, I will consider your request, lol :)

  5. Those are beautiful dogs, Molly! I bet they are a handful though. :) Dogs truly are like children-and since I have 4 human children, we have 2 cats.

  6. What beautiful dogs! Bella is just adorable.
