No Whammy...no whammy... it's Sammy!

Ok, it's officially tomorrow.  And time to you let you in on the big surprise.  Well, not so much surprise, but the big news!

We have known for sometime that we would eventually be a two dog family.  Recently, things have lined up just so and I would like to introduce you to our newest family member.

She's tiny and fluffy.  Blond and sweet.  Complete with four legs and a tail.

This is Sammy the Golden Retriever.


Pictured here at about five weeks old.  Happy belated Birthday to Miss Sammy!

Mr Happy and I met her last week and I have to admit I have fallen head over heels.  She hasn't come to live with us yet, but as you can imagine we have spent most of our time recently preparing for her to join us!

She has the best puppy breath, softest ears, and smallest little paws!

We brought Katie with us to met the potential new member of the Happy pack.  She took the whole meeting in stride.  Sniffed around.  She was very interested.  She was careful not to step on anyone.  And as you can see little Sammy took a real liking to Katie (or she was looking for milk...) 

Although, beyond milk interest, Sammy was also trying to bounce in front of Katie to get her attention.  Too cute!  Yup, wait till I get that on a video clip to share here!

We are still waiting to hear how her first vet check up goes.  And then after that we will finalize when we can bring her home.  It may be as soon as this Friday!

Can you tell I'm excited... and so is Katie!!?  I can't wait to introduce Sammy to her new home and extended family. 

* I'm looking forward moments when I catch the two dogs curled up together.
* I am excited to teach Sammy to sit, lay down, and come with hand signs.
* I'm looking forward to showing Sammy the lake and taking her for her first swim.
* I can't wait to see the pups share a toy or bone.
* I look forward to that moment where we all cuddle up for a nap -- our first official 'two dog night.'
* Or how about Sammy's first hike!


Yes, it's going to be an awesome puppy summer!  Any other two dog (or two pet) mammas want to share any tips or advice as we begin this fantastic journey?  How's that for big news!!! 

Hope you're having a great start to the week!! xoxo

Heeellllooo Sweet Sammy and welcome to your new 'best home'!
Dear Christie, I'm so happy for you! You are going to have unforgetable summer with Katie and Sammy! She is so sweet and beautiful! I don't think you need any advices because I know you love both of your puppies and they will have the best home with you!
One thing just came to my mind - I try to spend some moments with every dog 'alone'. I take only one with me for a drive to the market, or I play for a while outside just with one dog - I think that's good for them to get 'their own time'.
Congratulations to your new 'baby'!

Missy said...

Yay! Sooooooooo adorable!

There is nothing like a little golden retriever puppy face! Enjoy!

Congratulations! She is a cutie, to be sure. I have always said that I'm ready to raise children before I'm ready to have a dog...I have two kids, and a dog seems like MORE work than kids! But I love the dog-loving enthusiasm that comes through so clearly in your post. I'm very happy for you!

Oh now see? I just knew your exciting news was going to be baby related! ;)
Sammy is just so adorable! I'm so glad Katie seems to love the little bundle of fluff too. And you are looking pretty good too if I might say so! (must be all that wood stacking!) Hope you have a great weekend, and that your little bundle of fun makes and easy transition to your place.
