New 4 Legged Friend...

Well, I had planned on sharing another technique yesterday BUT we got word that the newest member of our family was ready to be picked up...

This is Graber.....


He's 7 weeks old and a mutt.
His mom was part rat terrier and ????  His father is potentially a Jack Russell terrier.
I say potentially because the owner wasn't sure who the dad is.
He's a sweetie though.

Here he is with one of our other dogs - Cecil.

We actually picked up him and his brother yesterday.  Yes, that little bitty is from the same litter!
He was the runt while Graber was the largest of the group.


He did pretty good and slept most of the night last night with just a bit of whining...
we did get up at 4:00a.m. though so it's been a lazy day.
I'm thinkin' I may be too old for getting up in the middle of the night with a baby ;)

I'm sure it's going to be interesting here for a while,
it's been a day or two since I had to potty train...
Cecil is our baby and he's 6 years old!

Both Cecil & Fidget are getting along well with him.
Marmalade (our cat) is another story...she's mad and I think she's going to stay that way for a while.  She won't even get off the couch when he's in the room - LOL!!

Anyway, that's what I've been up to for the last couple days!
Hope you're all having a great weekend!


  1. Adorable.........nothing better in life then a new animal friends.

  2. sweet...they're lucky pups to get you for a 'mom'.

  3. He looks cute. Yes the house training, getting up in the middle of the night. Hopefully it will only take you a couple of weeks. I love the cat's reaction, cats do certainly make themselves understood.

    Have fun with you new baby.

  4. Awwww, my heart just melted.. they are so cute! Hope Marmalade comes around soon... bless! Enjoy x

  5. So sweet! That little face just melts you!

  6. Ohh so cute! Just adorable. Lucky you!

  7. What gorgeous little things! Remember that, as you mop up the puddles!

  8. Congrats on your new additions to the family! Thanks for sharing.

  9. Congrats on your (still) growing family, Roni! Your new additions are absolutely A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!! They will make perfect embellishments to your craft room! ;-)

  10. Don't those eyes just make you melt.....So cute!

  11. awwwww they are both ADORABLE!!! Definitely jack russell in them... we have jacks. In fact I thought the baby in the 1st pic was a Jack until I read what you wrote. Have fun!

  12. Lovely little dogs but they do like to kill anything with feathers or fur. Do watch out for your cat when they are bigger - mine got our 11 yr old (lots of stored up resentment) one night when I was out. Super little characters though!
