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.

The kids are growing up so fast - Julia and Finn are beautiful children, they got the best of both of you :).

It looks like Skippy fits right in with the family - and all of you are enjoying her and vice versa. Fun times!
