Count Down!

We're back and counting down until our pup's arrival on Tuesday evening. The flowers have bloomed very late here due to the delayed moisture this summer so our pup will see the meadow in bloom!
R insists that he's mature enough to be the big brother in the family now. He looks sincere, doesn't he?
Full speed ahead, he says!
I think he's going to love having a sister to play with him. They can race for sticks in the water, chase each other, and do all sorts of fun stuff! (The next photo is our "Black and White Sunday" photo).
The excitement is building here in the mountains!


  1. Welcome Back....I bet you can hardly sleep knowing your new pup will be "home" in just a few days. Oh, the excitement. R is going to make a wonderful big brother....let the romping and rolling continue.

  38. We cannot wait to learn how excited R is to have a little sissy- and he can be a big brother. I wonder what they will do first?
    We cannot wait to hear how many kissys you and the Runner get from the pup.
    We cannot wait to hear all about it.
    We wish the pup could talk so she could tell us how she feels to be chosen special.
    We bet she would tell you she was led to you by Angel K.
    We cannot wait to hear about the smiles!

  39. Yur excitement is contagious! We here in the Land of Enchantment are waiting anxiously as well! We know it will be a very special moment both joyous and bittersweet.

  42. This is exciting news to come back too! A new puppy will be wonderful to build new memories with and I am sure R will love a buddy to romp in the woods with. Can't wait to see your photographs.
