The Newest Member Of Our Family

This has been our conversation for the last eleven and a half years:

Me:  Matt, can I have a puppy?
Matt:  No.

Me:  Matt, can I have a puppy?
Matt:  No.

Me:  Matt, can I have a puppy?
Matt:  No.

Repeat times a thousand.

Then I got the puppy fever rather hard this winter.  A number of friends got puppies, wickedly cute puppies.  And I decided that my husband really does know me well enough to know that eventually I would just go out and get one.  Thankfully I was right and he didn't kick me out to live in the camper as he had threatened.  He has turned into quite the suckhole puppy parent even though he doesn't really want to admit it.

So welcome, Emma!  I know.  Odd name for a household that has cats named Tweakers, Battleship, and Pumpkin Cat.  She is a sweet little girl pup that is now 10 weeks old and has been getting to know us for the last two weeks.  Her mother was a border collie cross and the dad... who knows, but people are guessing yellow lab.  We got her from a rescue kennel in Tagish.

She is sweet, smart, and very energetic.  She is also very attached to me and is always at my feet.  The boys are in love with her and cannot wait until she plays fetch a bit better.  I think she is going to be a great fit for our family.

My new baby!

She is a bit of a wuss.

She loves being outside!

Matt is a total suck.

I am a total suck too.
We have three family members though that are no too happy about this new addition.

She is seriously the cutest puppy ever. I squee a little every time I see a pic of her lol

And I think I've said this before but your grey kitty looks SO much like the kitty I had in Inuvik (she lives with my mum now).

Congratulations on your addition! She looks like a sweetheart. Thank you for adopting from a shelter - there aren't enough people out there who do that :) You are awesome!
