I've Been Remiss

Yes, I've been remiss. Sandy and I became grandparents over the Christmas season -- twice, and I've failed to brag. May I do so now?

First of all, we welcome Maddie McLendon into our world. She's a darling little bassett hound who was only 5 1/2 weeks when she spent her first Christmas with us. The proud parents are Robert and Kristin.

May I also mention she's already quite spoiled? But isn't that what a grandmother is suppose to do?

Our second addition came the week after Christmas and his name is Cocoa -- a cataloopa leopard Australian shepherd mix. Different, I know, but darling all the same. He is already 8 months old, very playful, and already house broken much to his parents', Charles and Adrianne's, delight. He has quite an under bite, but two of his great uncles are dentists.

Cute, aren't they?

By the way, kids, I hear that 2009 is the year of the grandmother. And I don't think they were talking puppies....

The year of the grandmother! I have had quite a few of those years lately. My granddogs are beginning to catch up with the grandbabies. 7 grands; 3 great- grands I put Lucy in the grands; however I think that she really belongs to Bailey so that makes her a great-great-grand puppy.

I love them!!! How sweet! I am getting a Mini-Schnauzer Saturday! I can't wait. I wonder how my older two dogs will react. My Beagle is 11 or so and my Shep-mix is 3. the new one will be spoiled but the other two are so sweet. I am so excited but hubby is still warming to the thought. lol
