After Molly died October 2nd. we knew we would get another outside dog.
We just didn't know it would be this soon.
So after I started researching the type dog we wanted I came upon
some puppies that would be ready very soon. So we went ahead and picked her out.
So here she is.
She's a golden retriever/yellow lab mix.
She's five weeks old in this picture.

She weighs 5 pounds.
Isn't she adorable!

She really knows how to sleep.

I didn't remember how much a puppy sleeps.

And boy do they chew.

She's found my pocketbook strap.

Her favorite buddy is Zippy the monkey.

We took her to Florida the week we got her.
She did so good. Loves to travel.
She also loved her orange juice from the Florida welcome center.
Who doesn't..

I've not tried to house break a puppy in 14 yrs.
Not since Tilly.
Boy is that a lot of work and commitment.
I'm also crate training her.
You really have to stay on a schedule with that.
So far it's going well, but exhausting.
Here she is at 8 weeks old.
And 10 pounds. Boy is she growing.

She really enjoys eating leaves.

As you can see, she's very photogenic.
I think she's quite beautiful.

Stay tuned for more of her growing life.

You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.
Psalm 18:28
