Congrats Winston, she is adorable :cloud9:.

I have also seen a different version of the "last will and testament" and love it.

[B][I][COLOR="Purple"]One last request I earnestly make. I have heard my Mistress say, "When Blemie dies we must never have another dog. I love him so much I could never love another one." Now I would ask her, for love of me, to have another. It would be a poor tribute to my memory never to have a dog again. What I would like to feel is that, having once had me in the family, now she cannot live without a dog![/COLOR][/I][/B]

[QUOTE=pbpatti;1032740]Winston, I remember when Sasha was a puppy, she had so much energy that she was "bouncing" off the walls. I am not sure that I could handle that kind of energy today. Love the name Sophie too.

Yay for daddy kisses:cloud9::lovestruck: patti[/QUOTE]

*groan* Brina still has that energy.....

Winston, it was nice talking to you on the weekend. So glad the transport worked out well, bless the vet tech for bringing her so far in such awful conditions! Sophie is gorgeous. She probably loves that the bed smells of Winston, it's probably comforting to her. Love love love the LW&T from the doggies. Perfect really. Hope your knee is healing up well. Hugs to you all on your new journey together. Does Sophie still have puppy breath?? Maybe just a bit...

Yes DD she still has those razer sharp puppy teeth and breath! and a wonky smelling ear which we are treating her for! doesnt seem to bother her though!

OMG I am tired!! :laughing::laughing: she is FULL of energy!!!

Here are a couple of pics from today while she was enjoying her yard!

Dog Dancer January 16th, 2012 12:40 PM

She sure looks happy and beautiful! Hope the ear turns out to be nothing serious. I love your kennel out back there. I wish I had one. Who won the battle Sophie or the tree?? Does she have a "forever" home tag yet??

Winston January 16th, 2012 01:05 PM

She had the zoomies in that pic! she loves to chew......:D

I need a nap! :D

hazelrunpack January 16th, 2012 07:52 PM

If you try to take a nap, will she come and snuggle, or does she jump on you and want to play? :D

Melinda January 17th, 2012 06:03 AM

such a gorgeous coat!! she looks like she is enjoying herself.

Marty11 January 17th, 2012 07:39 AM

SHE IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!! Happy puppyhood! :D

Goldfields January 17th, 2012 09:53 AM

Wish I could roll in that snow with her. :) 37C here today. That first photo is terrific, she sure is a gorgeous kid.

CsqU4r3d January 17th, 2012 10:22 AM

What a living doll!!! Just wanna hug her till the stuffin' comes out!!:lovestruck::crazy::lovestruck:

Dog Dancer January 17th, 2012 10:42 AM

I just have to keep coming back to look at this cuteness.:cloud9:

Winston January 17th, 2012 11:16 AM

I truly feel blessed to have such cuteness! she is a little bit of a handful today! doesnt want her ears cleaned! squirned all over the place! :D

Dog Dancer January 17th, 2012 02:57 PM

What kid sits still for ear cleaning?? :D

doggy lover January 19th, 2012 08:57 AM

Winston congrats on the new baby she is a cutie:thumbs up

Dog Dancer January 19th, 2012 02:36 PM

It must be time for a Sophie update isn't it?? Please....

I hope your knee is healing my friend, and that you are getting some sleep.

Marty11 January 19th, 2012 02:50 PM

:thumbs upYep it's time !!!!!!!

Winston January 19th, 2012 03:05 PM

Hi guys! Sorry for the lack of updates!

Just got back from Sophie's first visit with our vet and she is absolutely perfect! they removed her spay stitches and they have healed nicely. She received her last booster shot and they checked her ear. She still has some gunk in the ear but they checked for mites etc and all is good! She is now 28lbs and they indicated she will be a small lab for sure possibly no more than 50lbs or so! She is loosing her teeth too! The vet said her molars are just coming in and all of her adult teeth are in at the front the rest are still puppy teefies! She was a raving lunatic (sorry sp?) at the vets! :D

I also had some follow ups with the surgeon yesterday to find out what exactly was done last week. he said for my age my knee is in pretty rough shape. I had a complete tear of the meniscus and arthoscopy along with something else to take pressure off the knee. I have quite a bit of arthritis in 3 different spots in the knee.:yell: He said its healing nicely so I can see him again in 3 weeks!

Oh and heck is it ever itchy! he said its normal cause its healing!

Thats my update for today!

Dog Dancer January 19th, 2012 03:47 PM

Glad to hear the Lunatic had a good vet checkup. I had to laugh at that. Sorry. Lunatic in a good way I assume!

Sorry to hear you're having such a hard time with your knee though, the itching must be a drag. Sophie could maybe lend you a cone if it's a problem :p. I guess it sounds like you're just always going to have a problem knee doesn't it. That sucks. My sister has always had knee issues too. Puppy kisses have to make the healing better though.

Dee-O-Gee January 19th, 2012 09:32 PM

Sophie will soon bring pep back in your step Winston! :thumbs up

What a lovely thread and such a beautiful girl. :cloud9:

You can keep them there pictures coming anytime. :D

hazelrunpack January 20th, 2012 10:25 AM

Argh!!! I hate unscratchable itchies!!!! :yell: Good thing you have Sophie there to keep your mind off it! :D Is she pretty active at home or is she settling in pretty good?

Winston January 20th, 2012 11:40 AM

hazel dl she is pretty active..especially those zoomies.
she had a little longer nap this am. dh is in having nose surgery so i had to leave her for awhile but she was fine...i am soooo happy she loves her crate.

Dog Dancer January 20th, 2012 11:52 AM

If/when we get a puppy we will so be crating. I wasn't going to be pushy about pictures, but since somebody else mentioned it.... :o Good luck to hubby with his nose surgery.

Bearsmom January 20th, 2012 12:18 PM

Congrats Winston, and did she come into the home already loving the crate? Our new addition DETESTS his. DETESTS it.

Winston January 20th, 2012 01:11 PM

yes she loved it before coming here. it was one of the things i was so happy about. the one thing i am not used to is the foster mom covers the crate so that is
what i do, she never makes a peep.

Bearsmom January 20th, 2012 03:20 PM

*groan*. Must be nice....:frustrated:

Sorry for the crappy quality but it was taken with a cell!

Marty11 January 27th, 2012 09:26 PM

OMG she is so precious!!!!!!!!!!! :cloud9:

pbpatti January 27th, 2012 10:21 PM

What a little sleaze:crazy: Thanks for the picture of your new gal. Sure looks like she has settled in nicely.

Goldfields January 28th, 2012 02:17 AM

LOL. That is exactly how Jarrah sleeps in this hot weather, Winston, cooling her belly. Usually her forehead is flat against her water bowl, cooling her head at the same time.

Do NOT let her near your dog. ROFL. Sophie needs her stuffin'.
