We Got Our Girl

My children lobbied hard for us to give our 9 year old lab, Haley, a puppy friend for her birthday in August...because, you know, what every good ole 'only dog' lab wants is a youngster to rock the boat. :-)

We met Sugar back in September and have been waiting for eight weeks to bring her home. So far I'd say she's a hit!

She is also a terrific distraction from the heartbreaker of a game my team lost today!
I have now blown my 1:1 pet/kid ratio completely out of the water...2 dogs, 2 cats (& a couple of feral kitties we are feeding.)

My house is officially a zoo, but there is nothing quite like the loving chaos of family life...and 8 year olds with a puppy.
Life is good.

Precious! We have promised E a dog when she is 5 and she talks about her dog! Have fun and embrace the chaos. Your pictures make it look so fun!

Haley looks like "What have you done to me!" Sugar is a cutie!
