It's a girl!


There's my little surprise. I found out on Monday that our pup would be ready to come home today. And, since it is Hazel's birthday weekend, I thought it would be a perfect surprise. She had no idea what we were going to pick up this afternoon. In fact, we spent the first 20 minutes at the breeder's house filling out paperwork...no puppy in sight. When she finally brought her out, Hazel's reaction was priceless. I am still kicking myself for not bringing my camera along. It was definitely one of those once in a lifetime moments. Hazel was so happy, and she just loves her furry little pal. Her name is Sake...as in the Japanese rice wine. Fitting...considering how much Bryan and I enjoy Japanese cuisine and culture. What a good little girl she is too...and sweet to boot! She's the perfect addition to our little family. I had really forgotten how comforting it is to have a dog in the home. We just love her to bits! On that note, I'm off to snuggle up with her and Hazel and watch some good re-runs on tv. Stay tuned for some yummy scrapage. I got my Red Velvet kit in the mail today, and I'm gearing up for some serious playing this weekend! Trust me...this kit rocks! Happy Friday!
