A New Addition


Happy Mother's Day!

Meet “Ginger” the new addition to our family.  She’s a red tri - color Australian Shepherd and is 12 weeks old.  I got her last week and it has been very hectic dealing with puppy-hood again. Luckily, she’s (mostly) trained and is starting to get the idea that going outside to go potty is the right thing to do.  Unfortunately, morning potty time is around 5:30 and I’m not a 5:30 sort of person. But I’ll deal with it until she can hold it longer.  In the meantime she’s a lot of fun with lots of energy.  Right now she’s barking at the dog in the glass fireplace doors.
Here are a few pictures:

  9. Oh, how wonderful!!! Puppies are just the thing to add in some fun, get our butts up and moving when we'd rather not, and fantastic entertainment. Kinda like looking at the world through a child's eyes. Congratulations on the new family member, and she is totally adorable! Bet she'll keep you on your toes. :)

    1. She starts keeping me moving at around 5:30 in the morning. I could wait for the adorableness to start a teeny bit later though. She is fun.

  11. Aussies are such clever dogs too! She's a looker, for certain. If you've ever had a desire to try agility, the aussies I've known have positively excelled at sport games of all kinds.

    1. I've had three Aussies previously and they were all very smart. Agility is great for them, unfortunately I,m not as agile as I could be lately! Don't know if I could keep up with her doing that.

  12. All the Aussies I have known have been lovely, intelligent dogs with super dispositions. Looks like you have a future star there...and apparently a knitter. She has good taste in yarn color...or is that just yarn that tastes good. *lol*

    Enjoy her. She is adorable.

    1. Thanks Jean. My three Aussies have been super smart and sweet. So far Ginger seems to be following in the steps of her predecessors. I just don't remember my other dogs being so talented in the knitting department!
