Even though our mom has always said we'd never have 3 dogs because she only has two hands (for petting), she's has been swept away by the idea of a puppy and we are now expecting another fur baby in just two short weeks. Feet work good for petting too, right?
We're all super excited about the idea of hearing the pitter-patter of puppy paws in the house again but our mom is like "off the deep end". Doesn't she remember what it is like to stand outside in the middle of the night in the cold and snow and wait and wait and wait for a puppy to go potty? Doesn't she remember what it is like to run after a little puppy when it has "open floor time" to make sure there is no chewing on things that shouldn't be chewd on (whoops, chew happens)? Doesn't she remember what it is like to clean up puppy messes on the floor when there are accidents (we've both been there, done that)? Doesn't she? Well, she does and she's still super excited!!!
Here, we'll show you the pictures we have up until now of our new puppy. Every week her breeder posts new pictures on their website. It's so much fun to see her grow and change from week to week and it totally adds to the excitement level we all feel!!! Mom shares the pictures with everyone, so now it's time for us to share them with you. Her name will be Nutmeg and she is a little brown and white Boston terrier.
This is the first picture mom saw of Nutmeg, taken just a few days after she was born. Up until that time, mom says she didn't have any intentions of adding to our family but from the moment she saw this little face, there was no turning back. Nutmeg was born on October 21, 2010
We'll share the weekly photos with you so you can see how our baby sister has grown up until now.
She's just a tiny bit bigger in week two, but not a whole bunch.
Look, in week three here eyes are open and her body looks like she's putting on some puppy pudge.
Week four she's lifting that giant head of hers and her eyes look way to big for her face, but people always say that about Bostons. "The better to see you with my dear!" LOL
At week five she looks inquisitive. You can tell she's a thinker. She's sitting so pretty for the camera. We think she's a real cutie pie!
And here is our most recent picture we have of Nutmeg taken at 6 weeks old. From the looks of her she can run and jump with the best of them (just not too fast or not too high...yet). I'm sure she'll keep us both on our toes this winter and boredom won't be an option during the cold days spent inside!!
Many people have asked us if we think we'll feel jealousy or resentment when Nutmeg is home and taking away some of mom's time, but we know we won't. Mom's heart is big enough for all of us and we know there will be no need to worry or feel slighted. Our place is secure and we'll do our very best to help with the new baby and make her feel right at home.
Mom and dad are going to pick up baby sister on December 11, 2010. We promise to be good big sisters to this new little baby and teach her everything we know. We know she'll be a little sad and confused the first few days of being here but after that, she'll find out that this is just the best place ever for a happy, healthy, fun filled life.
We'll write again soon! You've got to know that we'll have much to tell you as we add Nutmeg into our family and mom will be taking pictures like a crazy woman!! Come back to check in on us again soon, won't you?
Woo, Woo, Woof!
Ivy and Nellie
