Next up (and the reason I've been so delinquent in blogging) is the sweet and cuddly Miss Josie! WE GOT A PUPPY!
Getting your first puppy is very similar to bringing home your firstborn child from the hospital. At first you can't believe someone LET you take this helpless little creature home with you, then you realize how UNPREPARED you are so you rush out and buy all sorts of things you never knew you needed (and probably don't), you find yourself OBSESSING over every noise, movement and bowl movement, you realize how much you took sleeping through the night for granted, you read stacks of books on the proper care and feeding of your new little bundle of joy, at some point you wonder WHAT you got yourself into (admit it, you asked yourself that question at least once) and STILL you fall hopelessly in love regardless of it all!
That's our story so far. I look forward to sharing more of Josie with you all as she grows, disobeys (oh no, not MY dog), destroys things (yes, I know it will happen) and wraps me around her cute little paws .....
Until then, here are a few pics of Josie's first official mini (because puppies have very short attention spans) photo shoot! I took her to a favorite spot and simulated one of my favorite child images of all time. The goal: a photo for the wall .... because every new mommy needs a portrait of her baby on the wall :-)
And for anyone who is curious .... Josie is an 8 week old brittany spaniel :-)
