Well there is a new baby (Read 723 times)

    in the house. The weather was terrible on Sunday so I had decided on running a long run instead of spending $30 on a race that I would probably not enjoy very much. Well didn't get the long run in either. Instead dh had an awesome idea. Something we had been talking about and already looking into and that was get a puppy. Since dh will be in Ontario for 4 days each week for the next 9 weeks now was the time. I'd be able to establish myself as the alpha in the house (since dh is out of the country 4 days a week) and I'd have some companionship for when the kids are sleeping. Well we got Kallie. She's an 8 week old Golden Retriever. Looks like she may be the easiest kid I've had to potty train (only 1 accident since we got her on Sunday morning) Isn't she adorable Big grin Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

      I was gonna say awwww, but my company blocks many of the sites that I frequent, so I'll have to save that for tonight when I get home. I'm sure Kallie is very adorable.


      Needs more cowbell!

        Oh, Pam, she is sweet! Are you going to eventually have a furry running buddy? I'll bet she'd love that! Smile k

            Eventually . From what I've read we'll have to wait until she's around 2. Until then I'll have to be happy with taking her for walks.

              I'll say it for ya. Awwwwwww! How cute!

                Congrats on your new addition! She is adorable. (How did you get a puppy to lie still that long and not eat your rugs or stuffed animals?) Can I come visit? Tongue I hear you can start them running at 1 year (12 months) - start with 1/2 a mile 3 days a week and increase by 1/2 a mile a week until she can run farther than you. Then you have a pace-dog to keep you motivated all year long! (Check with your vet first! Especially since goldens can have hip problems which might mean she needs to increase slower or something.) My canine clock is ticking so loudly!

                      Oh boy! As if I didn't have puppy fever enough already!! Smile Golden retrievers are the best, aren't they? Our neighbor got a retriever puppy this summer (a male- "Rufus"!) and at 11 wks he was bigger than my 4 yr old. I just about died when she showed me pics of Rufus and Oliver, their cat, wrestling around. Apparently it's something they do pretty often! And Oliver's not big! Big grin I would love to get a lab or retriever, but think we're going to try to get a smaller dog like a terrier. When we were at a super bowl party this past Sunday, someone there told me she was the new owner of a little terrier puppy. She said when she got it, it fit in the palm of her hand. That sorta made me nervous. Knowing me, I'd lose it! I don't know what it is with babies and puppies though...get around them and get the fever!! LOL Big grin Congrats on your new "baby"!!
                        I guess you have to change your name to Rocking Mama of Six now!

                          Thanks, come on over lol. She seems to do ALOT of sleeping and she doesn't even care what she may be sleeping on. As for chewing anytime she tries to chew on something she gets one of her chew toys shoved in her face (not literally) by me or one of the kids. I'll definetly be talking to the vet about when I can start her running and having her hips checked out frequently. Here she is sleeping on one of the phones lmao Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
