All Hallow's Eve

Because I am such a big kid I still love dressing up even if it's only to hand out candy. I must have done a good job because a little boy said to me "Are you a real vampire?" It was so cute. I wanted to dress up the dogs but Joe drew the line - Cosmo hates it anyway but Kiri would probably be game. Rachel and Avery came over - Avery was Hannah Montanna and Rachel was her manager - never watch the show but the actor is Billy Ray Cyrus. Here are some pics!

She's growing up

And apparently teething :)

Kiri is no longer in the basement for the day when we head to work. She actually gets to stay in the house all day. Cosmo seems to be okay with it too. They sleep most of the day away anyway. However....puppy proofing the house has become vital. The second day Kiri was out this is what we came home to.

And yes she got into the puppy treats - it's a bag of "Beggin Strips" (in the shape of bacon). So now we have puppy proofed the house. Although you can't see it she chewed a CD - a freakin' CD and yes, she has chew sticks and chew toys!

She also seems to love rolling in crap and digging big holes :)

Thanksgiving weekend

Thanksgiving weekend was good. We went up to Joe's parents and decided to give Kiri a bath so she would be nice and white and clean - we went to park later and she decided the dig this great big hold in the ground and got very very dirty in the process - here is a pic of our dirty girl.

So it was back into the bath she went:

We did eventually get to his parent - this year there were 13 people and 4 dogs Cosmo, Kiri and Joe's parents dogs Molly and Maggie - Molly is the brown poodle and very jealous - she is used to be the centre of attention and wasn't this weekend - the nerve of the new dogs!! Kiri and her aren't really ever going to be friends but her and Cosmo seemed be fast friends.

We all dined on turkey and stuffing while Kiri seemed to enjoy my smelly old sneakers.

mmm... sneakers!

By the end of the day we endedup with full bellys and two tired little ones.
all cuddled up with mom

It's official - we're parents

At least to the dogs anyway. We get up in the middle of the night. I clean up poo and don't get even slightly angry at the guilty part and I consider 8:40 sleeping. Lastly, I fell in love at first site. My little girl is sleeping beside me and my big boy is on the other side. It's amazing that I can be exhaused at work and I come home and then I see the dogs and I am re-energized. Maybe they have some sort of caffine in them. I love coming home because they are so happy to see me and vice versa. I am one very happy woman!!!

Anyone want a puppy??

So Joe usually comes home and noon to let Kiri out and give her some more food (she gets fed 3 times a day). Today he couldn't do it and asked if I would. I, of course, said yes. So I get home and the first thing you have to do is pick Kiri up - she's in basement all day - and put her on the grass so she knows to pee there. So I get home, open the basement door and pick her up and put her outside. She pees I then notice her paws are covered with poo - not just the front two but all four.

I go inside and the bottom 1/2 of the door where she jumped up and down is covered with poo, the side wall is covered with poo, there is poo ground into the stairs in the carpet and the entire floor in the basement is pretty much covered with, you got it, poo. So I spent 40 minutes cleaning up poo and walking the dogs making me 20 minutes late for work.

And since I did a fast job it happened again when we got home at 5 to a much much lesser degree. Now it's done (took about 1.5 hours) and I steam cleaned the floor because she pees down there.

I picked up some puppy training pads so we'll see how those work out.

Oh the joys of having new puppy but let's face it she's totally worth it and so much more. I love my little girl and my big boy so very much!
