Gumming Puppy


He especially likes to chew (gum) on peoples fingers. His tail is also starting to curl up now and he likes to lay on his tummy with his feet out behind him. I haven't seen it yet but they said that he likes to lay on his back and sleep too.  Posted by Hello

Puppy is now 5 weeks.


Puppy is now 5 weeks old. He is soooo sweet. Getting around really good now and starting to get into mischief. He likes to chew on things even though he has no teeth. Posted by Hello

Back Home Again

I got back Sunday night about 8:30pm. I can say that I was and still am very tired. Loved the weekend. Lots of wonderful information about how to walk with our God and the blessing we receive for doing so. I definitely didn't get enough sleep especially Saturday and Sunday night. So, that is all I am writing for now until I can get some more much needed rest.

All for now until Monday.

We are leaving tomorrow morning for Tacoma, Washington. Have a convention to go to with the kids. Will write more when I get back and let everyone know how the puppy is doing then.

Take care all and see you on the flip side!

All Tuckered Out

Our Day at the Beach

As you can see by the pictures below, we had a great time and beautiful weather at the beach yesterday. I was just too tired when we got back to do anything more that send the pictures to the blog. Saw a really nice crochet serape and got the idea of starting to make one myself.

Leaving on Thursday for a convention in Tacoma so I am not sure how much time I will have to write anything until next Monday. If I don't get back to say anything before then you all take care and will post something when I get back.

This is an outfit that I crochet for my little neice about 8 years ago. She didn't get to wear it for very long because she grew so fast. Don't they all?!

New Yahoo Messenger!

If you don't have yahoo messenger, get it! This is the best one that I have seen to date! It has some great new features. To name just a few:
Avatars, IM Vironments, Funny audibles that you can send to friends and Lanchcast radio. Now this last feature is great. I can listen to the radio, the music that I choose and it shows what I am listening to on friends IM's and I can see what they are listening to if they choose to let me see. I like that feature because if I see something that they are listening to, I can click on it and it starts playing on mine. Cool huh!
You can also share pictures easily in one of the invironments. Anyway, when you get it. Let me know and I will give you my messenger id and you can add me.

3 Weeks Old and eyes opening finally.

Fat 3 week old Puppy


Look how fat and big I am getting! I am finally trying to open my peepers too. Just in the corners though, not quite ready to see the big world yet. At least not for a couple more days. By the way, that is my daughter holding him. She is almost 15! Yikes!  Posted by Hello

A Full Grown Maltese


This is a picture of a full grown Maltese dog. I borrowed the picture from http://www.akc.org/breeds/recbreeds/maltese.cfm  Posted by Hello

Puppy is now 15 days old


15 days old. As you can see he is really close to opening his eyes. Doesn't he look like a teddy bear. Haven't come up with a good name yet, but am working hard on it. This picture was taken on June 10, 2004.  Posted by Hello

Puppy is now 15 days old. Picture 2.


Here he is again. He definitely likes to be held instead of being left alone. I almost didn't get this picture, he was busy looking for those warm hands and bodies. Since he is the only puppy in the litter, I think he will be a very affectionate lap dog. This picture was taken on June 10, 2004  Posted by Hello

Now he is two handfulls and not just one! Posted by Hello

Our Puppy is getting bigger


Our Puppy getting bigger! Posted by Hello


As you can see, he is now about two handfulls. He still doesn't have his eyes open yet but he was really trying to when we were there today. He is getting so fat. I guess since he has mom all to himself, he can eat as much as he likes. He is also starting to get the black nose. You can see a few black spots on it now. He is sooooo cute!

Our New Puppy!

This is our Maltese puppy below. He was born on May 26th. We don't have a name for him yet. We hope to bring him home in about 5 to 7 weeks, depending on when he is ready to leave his mamma, then after watching his antics for awhile we should be able to come up with a good name.

I've done some research on the breed and there is a lot to learn. But I am ready. It has been too long since I last had a dog of my own and I really miss having one.

He looks very fat and already makes little growling noises when he wants to eat and you don't take him back to his mamma.

I am going to keep a picture album going to show his growing progress. I know that I am more excited about this than my kids are.
