...and they called it puppy love!




Is it just me, or she really as cute as I think she is?




Saturday was such a LONG, exhausting day that I knew I wouldn't sleep well unless I got a nice shower before bed. I brought Praline into the bathroom with me and shut the door. Now, my shower curtain is clear plastic, so she could totally see me the whole time, but after a few minutes, I heard a mournful sound, half howl/half chortle, and looked over to see her fretting and trying to climb into the tub with me. I know she could see me - I don't understand why they anxiety! One day soon, a half-hearted hop will land her in the tub with me. I hope she likes being clean.


She's got lots of personality, and I'm enjoying getting to know her. She's such a soft little thing, too, with her smooth, pink baby-piggy belly. Her tail will straighten out or curl up and seems to be a mood/interest indicator, but I'm not versed in what the curl indicates just yet. It will be fun finding out.


Sorry- I'm kind of foaming at the mouth about all things puppy-related lately. This blog won't be turning into a one-note symphony-- I'll settle down. Eventually. Probably about the time she makes sawdust of a favorite piece of furniture, or something. Even then, I'll still think she's pretty grand. :)

Monday afternoon, I'm going out to look at another little house near a lake that may be a good prospect for me. But then again, driving up in the country around Grayson county, I really, really like the gentle hills around there. It was a nice reminder that there's not just one-and-only-perfect-spot out in the country. Pick a spot on the map, I spose.


Have a great week!

"Praline" is certainly perfect, what a sweet, little confection she is!

I love her tail...it serves as punctuation, I'm sure.

Good luck with the lake house!

Lynx217 said...

what an adorable little pup, and this coming from a cat chick! lol, but I love dogs too - ones that don't growl and try to attack me :)
I wish I could fly there right now and cuddle up that pup! but I don't think my boss would give me vacation for that - not like he would anyways.
I'm so happy for you!!! I hope to see more pics soon, and if anyone tells you "'nuf" tell 'em to bugga off!

Cuter, maybe...if that's possible! ;-)

phlegmfatale said...

turk - That's what I thought!

dirtcrashr - she's a little lamb!

lynx217 - well, when a puppy can win over a cat person, well, that's a pretty bold statement! I think I won't be able to resist posting more pics. She's hilarious when she romps- I need to video her, really!

buck - awww! Yeah, I think she's hy-mo-tized me, because I grin like a lunatic every time I look at her.

She looks WARM! I want to snuggle my nose into her fur.

DirtCrashr said...

Adorable almost isn't enough, and good luck with the lake house - and remember: location, location, location, isn't just about retaining value but speaks a lot about how you feel, and the vibe about the "neighborhood"!
