Welcome Home!

We finally brought Malu home yesterday March 29th! She was a little fussy the first minutes in the car, but then slept the rest of the way.

Someone left us a little "Welcome Home" Balloon on our mailbox! Still don't know who though!

First thing she did was go "potty" when we got home, then inside to explore her new home!

Then...Bogart finally got to see what "sister" meant! He's had to put her in her place a couple times, but overall he's handling his "Big Brother" role pretty well.

Its been quite an exciting (and exhausting) 24 hours!!

Bogart says *Don't forget about me!!!*

I'm so handsome!

We have been slowly bringing in new accessories in preparation for Malu. Bogart has to make sure he checks them all out first! I really hope Bogart and Malu get along...Since he'll be bigger than her, at least for a couple weeks, he'll be able to show her he's the boss!

I'm such a good boy 'cause I scratch on my scratching post (even though I don't have claws anymore!)

I'm such a Momma's Boy! I love cuddling with my mom!

This is my FAVORITE toy! Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop gave it to me for Christmas one year!

6 week pics (03-22-08)

Wow! What a difference a week makes! They look so grown up!

We went to see Malu again today. Unfortunately we still couldn't hold her because they don't get their first shots until Monday :( Anyway...she is growing so fast! She weighs 8.5 lbs (which is only half of what Bogart weighs) and is so calm and sweet. We get to finally pick her up and bring her home with us a week from today. We can't wait. Enjoy the newest pictures!

13 days to go!

We went to see the pups again today. They will be 5 weeks old tomorrow, and we have 13 days from today until we can pick her up and bring her home with us. We are so excited and can hardly wait. We have unofficially decided we are definitely getting the lighter color one with the black birthmark!

What a sweet face!

They are on the go!

YAY for Mobility!!

We went to see the pups again today. They will be 4 weeks old tomorrow! When we first got there, they were all awake and playing with each other. It was amazing to see the difference a week makes in their activity level and ability to move around.

After about 5 minutes, they started to settle down...and soon huddled together for some much needed rest after playing. The one we think is "Malu" is in the front by the white toy. You can see her black birthmark on her left hind foot. The other female is at the top right with her head hanging off the cushion. They are just the sweetest things!

Malu is 3 weeks old!

The girls at 3 weeks 1 day

We went to see the puppies again today. They were crawling all around, have their eyes open and starting to "play" with each other. Xena was less protective today and let us go inside the cage to get some pictures!

Female #1

Female #2 (We think this one will be Malu!)

Here are both females together:

The Lighter one in the front has a black "birthmark" on her left hind foot. Pretty unique!

Preparation Time!

Word on the street is that "sister" is coming in 5 weeks. My Mom and Dad have been getting things ready and doing a lot of stuff around the house before the 5 weeks is up. I've had to do a lot of "supervising" to make sure they do everything right.

It's a hard job...but somebody has to do it!

Don't forget Dad that taping is the most important part of painting!

Make sure you get all the paint washed out Mom.

*sigh* What would they do without me?!?
