What did I get myself into? With 2 rambunctious girls in the house already, a third won't be too bad, right?
When Kristin was younger (3-4 years old), she would always ask for a puppy. We promised her when she turned 10, we would think about it. She never forgot those words, and it seemed almost every year, she would bring it up and we would always try to talk her out of it. "How about a pet rock? How about some fish? You know, stuffed animals make great pets!" Well, she turns 10 this year and we kept our promise.
Meet Voldie (short for Voldemort).
We brought her home a month ago from a great breeder in Ripon. Kristin had the biggest grin on her face when we met her.
Things she likes. Balls, grass, bark, rocks, eating anything and everything that she finds on the floor.
She slept a lot the first few days. I thought it was super.
Kayla loves to play with Voldie, except when she is nipping and jumping all over her.
She's not as big of a fan of water as the kids are.
Kayla was trying to teach her how to play piano.
"Too hard to teach piano, I think I'll just tell her my funny jokes."
For a dog that doesn't like water, she sure seems interested in baths and toilets.
Kristin found a new use for Voldie, a nice warm soft pillow.
If there is a bathtub or toilet, you'll find Voldie, or rather she will find you while you are taking a bath or using the toilet.
Just like the girls, she grows so fast.
