Our new family addition

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Keith, Jan 4, 2006.

  1. I've always enjoy seeing other peoples family additions on this forum. Well after 3 yrs I finally convinced the wife to get our kids a puppy. We have had everything but (hamptsters, fish, you name it), and we both luv dogs and had our own for 12+ years but she didnt want to go through all that again. Personally I think every child should experience the luv and responsibility of a new puppy. We gave princess, (lets not go there! :rolleyes: ) , as I said princess to our children as a xmas present a month before xmas as we didnt want the puppy lost in the shuffle. She just came back from the groomers today, so today was picture day :smile: . She is 3 1/2 mths old. The light is a tad harsh, but you get the jest.......

    fyi- for some reason pbase wont load original???

  2. What a sweetie! I really like her with the red background. (hmmm, how did you keep her so still?) That must of been a challenge! I bet your kids were thrilled with her!

    Nice shot. Cute puppy. But it doesn't look like it will pick up ducks.:biggrin:
  4. Awwww!!! How cute is that Princess puff ball? :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: You certainly gave your kids and all of your family a great gift, Keith! Enjoy for many years: yes, it's work too, but well worth it.

    Speaking of groomer's day, it was Belle's day at the spa too (located inside the vet clinic, and she loves it there... must be the treats they give her :eek:  :rolleyes: ), but I didn't take a pic: perhaps next time...

    I like your philosophy on rationalizing the addition of a new puppy. A dog or cat is a nice way to round out a family and the responsibility for the kids is good for their life experiences. The image is really neat...your PP is tastefully done. Princess?????:eek:  Oops, forgot...you asked not to go there?!?!? :redface:
