Four paws

Life is a rollercoaster - well mine sure has been this past week.........

Firstly, as many of you know our sweet Westie, Roo's been battling cancer since last March,
she was such a tough little pooch, unfortunately she took a turn for the worse last weekend and
passed away in her sleep Wednesday night.

In early December we knew that Roo's cancer had spread and that she did not have long to live, so we started contacting breeders to get our names on their waiting lists..........

.........and on Saturday my husband and I collected this
adorable little girl

I'd like to introduce you to

 Lamb Chop 
she's perfect for this pint sized pup!

time for a nap on Mum's crocs!

And the funny stripy toy we lovingly call Zonkey belonged to Roo, so although she did not get to meet her, Pip gets to play with her teddy.

As you can imagine I have my hands full at the moment
last night I got 4 hours sleep!!

She is very small, so small in fact that the puppy collar I bought her is too big,
therefore she's got to keep wearing her whelping collar for a little while longer
oh and she fits through the bars on the stair gate.......help!

It's 12 years since we last had a puppy
and I've quickly realised that I just can't fit in much crafting - I need eyes in the back of my head
.......and some sleep!!!

Hopefully when things settle down and we've got her in a routine life will get back to normality
but for this week at least I'm concentrating on our little pup!

Bye for now
