A New Family Member!

My husband and I have been dragging our feet for years about getting our kids a pet. I’m already so busy, you know. Well, we finally gave in and agreed for the grandparents to get them a pet for Christmas. They and she safely arrived yesterday and we’ve had constant entertainment since. The kids are in love with her. They even went and bought her some outfits. So now they can see if she’ll be agreeable to dress-up. But she’s not a cat, she’s a dog, so they’re going to have to work hard at it. She’s not just any ole’ laid back dog either, she’s a Jack Russell, and let me tell you she has energy.

Now don’t you think she’s the cutest thing you ever saw?

Here are some pictures of three very happy children with their new pet. (They had just had grape juice before these were taken, hence the smiles.)

John Deere Boy loves the dog, but he’s getting over having a little fear, because she knows how to nip his toes. He loves to play with a little ping-pong like ball with her.

G’tums is excited to hold her and play with her, but he isn’t quite sure what’s okay and what’s not. He finally decided it was okay for her to stick her nose on his cheeks so they’re going to make it now, I think.

Zippy is thrilled. She was has been telling me for a week that the only thing she wants for her birthday is a dog. That’s not until March, so she got it even earlier. She’s pretty sure she knows everything about dogs, since she’s been wanting one so bad. She’ll be busy because she’s the one who will have to feed and water the dog and take it out and all that kind of stuff.

Oh, I almost forgot, her name is Sadie.

    What a cute little puppy. My kids would be so thrilled if we got a dog, I think I am almost ready for one? Seeing this little gal sure is helping their cause.

    It's a baby doll. My daughter thinks of our dog as a baby too, her baby. What a cute picture of the children enjoying the dog.

    Thanks for sharing about your new doggie! I'm glad you are there to take the puppy outside, young lady! I didn't have any young feet at my house to do that chore so gave up after several weeks. But you are young and energetic; keep steady to your job and soon your wee puppy will be able to take herself outside.
