A Minor Distraction...

Guess what we have? A ten week old white German Shepard pup who sorely misses her mom and siblings and in total confusion about what's going on in her little life. I know the feeling and have been know to whine in about the same tone. But not all night long. She's only ours until youngest son picks her up tonight and makes a quick dash back to NOLA with the prize Xmas treat. Four kiddies there will be delighted and the pup (as yet unnamed) will soon have nothing to whine about that isn't immediately tended to. She'll go to training school with the older two girls and learn to be their protector when they have to come home from school to an empty house next year. Situations that can't be avoided in so many families, a big dog properly trained will help. The pic shown here was taken when she was only six weeks old... she'd doubled in size since we first saw her!

Now for the lake house slide show... see before, during and in progress pics here. I found this little program on the web, designed for the younger crowd at 'My Space' and I had to try it out using the least glitzy options it offered... the pics will give an idea of how our Xmas money is being spent this year. Hope you all enjoy your personal celebrations this season... and hope with all our hearts the next one will bring more peace to our world.

What a gorgeous pup! The kids are going to be ecstatic.

That's a great slideshow. Did I tell you I'm envious? Probably about a hundred times.

oh wow, that is the cutest puppy. I've missed having our old departed family member around here. It makes me think about a puppy again......but no, DH said he'd leave if I got another one.

Loved the slide show....and as Martha said....envious, envious, envious..........
