Well, our little girl is FINALLY 8 weeks old and we go tomorrow morning to pick her up! I don't have a digital camera(yet), so I will attempt the first photo shoot with said cell phone. My house is in order: gates are in place, shiny new stainless steel non-skid food and water bowls at the ready, the condo(crate) is all set up in my son's bedroom(the puppy is his 13th birthday gift-his birthday is sSuper Bowl Sunday), food and treats are lining the pantry, dog bed for the family room all set up, toys and balls, jingle bells hanging by the door and collar and leash are all set. The only thing not brand new is my former dog's leash. I wanted her spirit with us as we welcome our new addition. And finally, vet appointment for Tuesday morning. Oh, I almost forgot, one most important thing..., and that is PATIENCE! I'm sure I will have much more to write about as we go along. What a puppy ride this has been in preparation for the little cherub to join our family!
