Alright, the Puppy Story

Alright, alright already!! You're all dying to know....so to answer some questions, yes...we got a puppy.

Her name is Reesie, and she's 1/2 lab and 1/2 Australian Kelpie. So far she's wonderful and amazingly easier to take care of than Juneau was as a puppy. Two reasons for that...the boys are so loving on her and playing with her a lot & Juneau is teaching her a lot about where to go potty and how to play nicely. Other than that she's busy flipping over rugs and keeping us laughing. So far, so good.
I took this photo for scale. The black spots on the carpet, by the way, are tufts of Juneau's shedding coat. Ever present, until he gets kicked out. Which was today. Anyhow, Reesie is 5 weeks old in this photo. She was young to be adopted, but with a little love and TLC she's really happy and content without her mama.
Oh, but she does love to snuggle. It's nice she's so tiny, it's easy to keep her off the couch otherwise she'd be on it all the time . She just wants to be snuggly. We love little Reesie already.
