Six weeks old ... he made it through the night wonderfully (well, wonderful in that when he did wake me up every 2 hours, I brought him to his "puppy pad" and he did his thing). Daisy is a little unsure of him and jumps whenever he touches her feet. I'm sure she will get used to him in time. We kept his nickname from his owners, Hank the Tank. He was the biggest of the puppies and has big, big feet. So we'll see how he grows! Before long, Daisy may find herself looking up at him!

Mr. Wishbone

In preparing for puppy, we got one toy ... Mr. Wishbone. And boy, am I ever glad Mr. Wishbone was around at night! I'm realizing that we will need LOTS of toys for our little one. He LOVES to play! Even Daisy is getting inspired and being a little more playful when it comes to toys. But it's like kids. The concept of sharing isn't inbred! Daisy has stolen Mr. Wishbone from Hank a few times.

Sunset in St. Louis

Always stunning ... I was surprised by the way it would shine when kissed by the setting sun. I was also surprised when I was going through photos and noticed when I zoomed in on the photo below, I could actually see their faces!

"Ruff" Day

Somehow Daisy knows when I'm having a rough (or should I say "ruff?") day. She seems to have a particular interest in watching over me. I have to admit, I'm glad I have a dog. This would be a strange summer with a completely empty house!

The BIGGEST ice cream cone ever!

I did not realize that Emporia, Kansas was home to the first and biggest Braum's! What better way to top off the evening than ice cream?

Lavendar Hill

We visited the Lavendar Hill Farm & Winery today ... a beautiful little craft fair and lots of nature was just the thing to help me breathe in some relaxation today!
