She thinks she’s a big dog, all 2.6 pounds of her. This morning she climbed the concrete stairs in the backyard all by herself. Each stair is almost twice as tall as she is. I don’t know how she did it. But she is a determined little girl.
And there is more news! There are now two puppies! On Friday Miss Piper and I went and picked up Zoey‘s sister Lizzie and now Piper has her own puppy. Oh the happiness of these two puppies when they saw each other and how we love them both so much already! Lizzie spent the day with Dennis and I, both Saturday and Sunday as Mandy had already made plans before getting the puppy. They were going to the lake with Brad’s family. They are camping and she didn’t want to take a new puppy who hasn’t had all of her shots around other dogs and there are also a lot of ticks there.
We didn’t mind a bit. The girls entertained each other, both went outside very well with no accidents in the house. I think it’s going to be great for them to grow up together. Since they are part poodle, they are hypoallergenic and Piper can be around them both.
In the above photo Lizzie is on the left and Zoey is on the right with the spots. Lizzie looks like a miniature golden lab. Her real name is Elizabeth, which is what Piper calls her but that’s such a big mouthful for such a tiny puppy. They are both such sweet puppies.
Plus Brad and Mandy have a friend who used to be a dog trainer before she retired. She is willing to meet with Piper and I and give us some tips for training them. I already have Zoey sitting pretty well when told and she knows her name, just doesn’t always respond to it.😍
All of this doesn’t leave much time for anything else. I have been trying to decorate for fall for almost a week now and the bin is still in the garage! How can one little puppy take up so much time? The only stitching I have gotten done is on the crocheted baby blanket and it’s coming right along and almost completed.
It’s a simple two row repeat and doesn’t take much thought. I can pick it up and put it down without worrying about losing my place in the pattern.
Take care of yourselves. Wear your masks! Keep your distance! This nasty virus isn’t finished with us yet.
