A new addition to the family...........

and no, not another baby. That won't happen until September. We are the proud owners of a new puppy. And this is what she looks like:
We have named her Cocoa and she isn't old enough to leave her momma yet, so she won't be joining us until the 20Th. That's only a little more than a week away.

We had her here for a short visit last night to introduce her to our other dog, Prancer. I can say that Prancer wasn't very impressed with her. She seemed to be afraid of the puppy and she drooled a lot as if to say, 'my, what a lovely little snack she will make when they're not watching'! Prancer has always been a little stand offish with smaller animals but give her one her size and she will run and romp and play with the best of them. I anticipate them becoming very good friends! Or maybe I'm just humoring myself!

Cocoa is 3/4 Lab and 1/4 Austrailian shepard. She will get to be good sized, but not to big. Prancer is 1/2 boxer and 1/2 sneaky neighborhood dog! Okay, the vet says probably German Shepard or Austrailian shepard, but no one knows for sure!

Hoping this doesn't turn into a "Marley and Me" type of thing!

Are you OK? You haven't posted in so long. Is Amber OK? Just wondering.

Oldqueen44......yes we are both fine. Amber is now 14 and doesn't come as often as she did before......she is outgrowing her 'Mema'! Acquiring an interest in spending girl time with her friends.......normal passage from little girl into young woman. Still it's hard to let them go. Thought it would be different with grand daughters and find out.....NOT SO MUCH! Working full-time right now through the first week in June and then back to my normal 3 days per week which I'm sure, will feel like a vacation to me! Thanks for your concern....will post something new soon.
