This makes me happy

When I get an update that a puppy (and especially an older puppy or adult) is settling in and feeling comfortable at their new home it gives me much happiness and relief to know they’re going to be okay. I’d say Baby Girl looks pretty comfortable in her new home😍

A busy weekend

The weekend started on Friday. I loaded the truck up with dogs (okay, only three πŸ˜‰ ) and headed to our vet appointment.

Genesis got her check-up by Dr Jes, got her microchip (without a peep out of her), a stool sample checked, then we got the paperwork filled out (puppy health sheet, microchip info, and health certificate) and she was done!

Reba and Baby Girl came too. They got baths but I didn’t have time to groom the shaggy beasts! Poor Reba had an ear that she was scratching so I brought her to have that checked. And yep, she had an infection so we got that fixed up and she’s on the way to healing. And Baby Girl, got a check-up and her rabies vaccination.

Then on Sunday, I headed out to Spokane with Genesis and Baby Girl.

This beautiful, dainty little girl has been living with us since she was born almost a year ago. Unlike, her friendly, outgoing big brother Finn, she has always been on the timid side and very submissive. Although she loves life and plays with glee, and is a little sweetheart she lacks confidence and seems to be more suited for a quiet, lap-dog life. So I was just planning on keeping her until just the right situation came along. And it did!She is so tiny and petite!Just a couple weeks ago, Chris contacted me to see if I had any Poodles nearing retirement or an older puppy that needed a home. Chris is an avid Poodle lover who actually adopted our sweet Eli after he retired and gave him a life of leisure. ❀

It was love at first sight when she saw Baby Girl!

Next stop was the airport terminal to hand off Genesis to her very excited mom! She’s leaving the cold northwest to go live in sunny, warm Southern California. Lucky pup!

Pretty, please!

Anytime Hope hears me chopping up sometime on this cutting board, she swiftly heads to the kitchen and stands near me vigorously wagging her tail. “Pretty, please mom?” Is what she seems to be asking. It doesn’t matter what I’m cutting up. She wants a bite.

Poor starving dog. πŸ˜‰

Sometimes she gets a taste. But today, it was onions and potatoes, so no-go Hopie.

On a positive note though; she weighed in at 13.6 lbs today, so the diet is working!

My hubby’s uncle and his new wife (his aunt passed away a couple years ago) came to visit my in-laws for last weekend. So while hubby was home on Saturday afternoon, I sneaked out and walk to “grandma and grandpa’s” house for a visit.

A perfect opportunity for Genesis to ride in the soft a carrier (trying to get her used to it for her flight home) and get to meet some new people!

Our other aunt and uncle who are neighbors and my sister-in-law were there too to love on Genesis.

Laundry Helper

Well, at least I finally found someone to help with the laundry around here!

I cant guarantee that she’ll separate the colors from the whites though.πŸ˜‰

Testing, testing

The covered potty area is finished!

This will be so nice for rainy, fall weather and “snow-season” (I don’t like that “W” word :P)

It’s right off the back door outside the laundry room. Hubby put guttering up too so the rain won’t drip on us as we head in and out the door. It will be a nice dry place for moms, puppies, and teenagers to head outside for potty breaks.

He just put the finishing touches on it a couple days ago when he shoveled a thick layer of pea gravel in to cover the dirt. And just in case anyone gets any ideas, he laid wire down under the dirt so silly puppies won’t dig holes.

Today, Reba and Baby Girl got baths so they tested it out for me when they went out for a potty break. Since they were clean but I hadn’t’ gotten the grooming (with clippers) done yet, it was a nice, clean place for them to go and still stay clean.

Thankful, once again for my handy-man. πŸ™‚
