Daisy Mae

I just gave her a middle name. 

The puppy is doing well so far. We are all getting well acquainted. Mommy is very well acquainted with the pee pee dance and how fast that happens. I must be a gluten for punishment considering I have a three year old that still does the pee pee dance. Hell, so does the almost 7 year old. (Shut up, I do not).

JP speaks for all of us constantly repeating "Mommy, I like two doggies." So far, the only hold out is Haley. She continues to growl and get up and walk away. She hasn't actually snapped, of which I am Mama proud. She simply removes herself from the situation and finds another place to chill. She doesn't even seem to mind when Daisy takes over her doggie bed although she has a perfectly comfy one in her kennel. I think Haley secretly is ok with this whole new scenario though. She'll come around, in time. 

Daisy has met all of the neighbors and even the nightly walkers in the 'hood. One older couple helped themselves to her in our driveway today and fell in love. So much so that they know our puppy's name but had no concern for who we are. :) I suppose that's the first of many admirers. She really is a cute puppy (is there not?). 

She does a wonderful job at going to bed at night. The first night she whimpered for about 20 minutes and then she was down for the count. She sleeps like a log. I think we exhaust her during the day. She even tries to catch a few power naps when the kiddos aren't hounding her for attention.

I'll let you in on a secret too. You need your family to pick up after themselves? Get a puppy. In just two days my kiddos have realized that toys, flip flops, towels, socks, hats, stuffed aminals and more have to be up off the floor. {And the Heavens opened up and the angels sang } Beginning Tuesday, his first day off, let's see how long Hubs takes with the lesson. I'll keep you posted. 

For now, though, we are a Family with two doggies and we are all happy with this bright and cheery addition to the family. She has her first vet appointment tomorrow and the kiddos are excited to show her off. They have already set a schedule of which of their laps Daisy will ride in and when. It's usually me their fighting over. :(

PS. Yes, I know I spelled it aminals. :)


  1. it's been 3 years and 13 hats so are harder to train

  2. I had a kitty named Daisey Mae as a child. Great name and adorable pup!
