It's almost 2011!

For the holidays, we have been fostering two 6 week old labrador puppies.  It's been our holiday "community service."  I swear everytime I say that I feel like I am admitting my children are criminals.  Hhhhmmmm.    And, yes, I made dog toys for them, personalized and everything. I am the mother of criminals, I have to have a creative release!    Delilah is up there cuddling her toy.

Please meet Delilah, the chocolate lab and her sister Lola, the black beauty.

Miss Emma, our 9 1/2 year old English Mastiff has been a most gracious host.  We are calling her "Gramma Emma,"  She tolerates snuggling (see above) tail tugging, whimpering, wrestling and toy stealing.  She is incredibly kind and plays like the gentle giant she is, soft nibbling, quiet nudging all with such kindness.  We love her dearly and are reminded of how special she is to our family.

The puppies go back to Furburbia on January 5th.  We will miss them.  They snuggle and play and pee and poop.  It's been a great experience for all of us.  We love you Lola and Delilah and we hope you find great homes.


  1. How sweet! Gramma Emma is so nice to let those puppies take over her house! Maybe she knows it's just temporary! Every Mastiff I've met has been a gentle giant and so sweet. Happy New year!

  2. Hey there! Just wanted to stop by. We were so happy to feature you on the Mom It Forward Facebook page and I never got a chance to say hey!

    Also, I am loving your winter fashion posts. Almost makes me want to get back up on the slopes after 30 years. Almost!!! ;P

    Krista was talking about another tubing night. I'll for sure have to get on my winter gear for that. It'll be fun to see you again.

    In the meantime, Happy New Year!

  3. oh how I love the puppy-ness! I do not know how you will return them....
    as one puppy lover to another~ enjoy them!
