Lucy and Blondie are home!!

 We picked up our 8 week old puppies yesterday, but there were also goodbyes to their siblings and parents to be made.  You wonder what goes through their heads?  Have they any idea what adventures are ahead??  Below is sweet Blondie...
 All set to go home as Kara cuddles with Lucy and Will cuddles with Blondie!
 First trip to the back yard...
 And already lots of kisses!
 And belly rubs!
 Both Lucy and Blondie were hungry from the trip home.
 And "Daddy" has the magic touch in getting the puppies to nap!
 Such sweet faces!!!  And lots of mischief to be had in the future!

 We decided to "start" looking at puppies having no idea how lucky we would be during our first trip out!!  It was quite a distance, but as you can see, well worth it!  Adorable puppies!!  Healthy, sociable, and home grown!
 We ended up choosing two female beagle a tricolor, the other a lemon/caramel color. 
 Ten puppies were in the litter...mommy dog nursing the 3 week old pups.
 We pick this girl because she fell asleep!!  Watch her become a holy terror!!  Ha!
 I love how the puppies have their legs stretched out behind them!

And we couldn't forget about dear old Dad "Ted" who was very proud of his puppies too!

Although it may seem so soon after losing our beloved Maggi, puppies sure put a smile on your face and reminds us that life does go on.  We will always remember Maggi...there will be no other...but there are new puppies to meet and get to know and distract ourselves with.  And I do think Maggi is ok with it...I dreamt Maggi was playing with a puppy a couple weeks ago.

We get to pick up the puppies December 22nd!  It will be an adventure for sure!!  I look forward to it!!!  Woof!
