Back on Track - Skippy

The second installment of blog posts aimed at getting me back on track.

In the beginning of May we got a puppy. Skippy is a Pomeranian. She started out as a half-pound ball of fur, but she's changed a lot in the last few months. These pictures are all from the furball phase.

But first! If you dare try to harm our pup, you'll have to deal with... Weapon Master Finn!

When we got her, she was barely eight weeks old. Below is Julia holding her in the car when we picked her up. Following that are more pictures from Skippy's first day at home.

Skippy is a good sport about being played with by the kids.

She's also enjoys snuggling.

Even though it's cute, we don't let her sleep on the steps because we're afraid someone won't see her and step on her.

She does this adorable thing where she looks at you and cocks her head really far to one side.

So much for not eating meat!

We found out that Grandma Ruth's Pomeranian, Maggie, is Skippy's half-sister. So Skippy may look like this in a few short years.

We really don't make Finn sit in Skippy's pen, but we might if he used his weapons from the first picture too often.

Back on Track - April

After fighting a month-long battle with a computer virus (on both computers), I got behind on keeping up with pictures. After that, my inactivity in blogland kind of snow balled. A few quick blog posts is my attempt to get back on track.

Finn turned three in April.

Some things go beyond a mutl-generational gap. One of those things is the love of donut holes.

And the willingness to fight for the last one. Joking aside, it's great watching Finn and Great-Grandpa Ronnie interact. From early on, those two have had a great time together.

Peace is helping Finn get his truck.

Julia definitely has an affinity for art.
