Lazy Sunday Thoughts: New Addition

Pin It


Remember when I said I had a secret? This is it! This is Molly our new addition. Isn't she cute?

Back in November when we lost our old dog, I told my husband I didn't want a dog again for a long time. He nodded and said, "Yes, dear." Then as winter turned to spring, my husband started showing me photos of dogs (not fair). Even though I told him to quit it, I started thinking about having another dog. As I watched the neighbours parade their dogs in front of my house everyday, I thought how nice it would be to walk my dog. So we started talking about it, and talking and talking, and when we saw her, I knew we had a winner.

So I've been busy getting ready to bring Molly home and reading dog training books. Yesterday was crazy and last night exhausting. I forgot how puppies cry all night. She missed her old family. Regular blogging programming might be a bit off until we all get accustomed to one another. (The cats are not impressed. They have been sulking in the basement.)

  1. How adorable! Cats are never impressed, but I am sure they will just show her who is boss eventually and get over it. Good luck with your new addition!

  2. She's gorgeous! No wonder you couldn't resist.
    I'm sure the cats will get used to her.

  3. Molly is just beautiful! How old is she? Our dog is 15 years old and is really showing her age this week.

  5. She's a cutie pie. I find dogs always bring a bit of extra special joy to my day, I hope she brings you joy every day :-D

  6. How cute!! I have decided that I want another dog, but when I broached the subject the other night the response was 'Yes, but not until we move.' Since it is not exactly known when we are moving, that could be a while...

  8. Beautiful! Dogs are such rewarding pets to have. Puppies are a lot of work, though. It took our puppy about a week to stop crying at night. It was so sad, but we had to resist!

  9. We got a puppy two months ago. Being that we are cat people it was quite a switch. I have pics in my Sunday Salon post today if you want to check her out.

  10. Congrats, Chris. We lost our dog last spring, and I still haven't been able to convince my husband to think about a new member of the family. Your story gives me hope :-)

  15. Oh my goodness, she's adorable! Good luck to all of you as you adjust to one another :-).

    We're starting to think about another dog too, but it probably won't happen for another few months,at least.
