Taken last week...A beautiful day for a drive. L'il Red and Korra were thoroughly enjoying the wind in their hair! (Both were attached to leashes, held tightly by yours truly lol)

I can't wait to see what Katarina looks like in a couple of weeks! Her coloring is so beautiful!
We had our two girls out today with us yardsaling and didn't they BOTH get all sorts of compliments! Everyone was amazed by Korra's coloring and then they would pet them both and remark on how soft Li'l Red's coat is and how sweet her temperament is. It was Korra's first time going out with us on our Saturday morning jaunt. She did really good!

Back asleep and all snuggled down.

Korra and Li'l Red have been following me around all morning Li'l Red seems to be more accepting with each new day. We do have Korra in her own penned area at night and when we need to do stuff where she is underfoot for now. She is so very smart though! Tell her to stay and she really listens! Jared has been walking with her outside and she stays right by his side, whichever side he tells her to be on! She is currently snuggled by my thigh sound asleep after 2 hours of playtime inside and outside with Jasper and Li'l Red. Jasper is not as accepting of her yet. He seems more jealous than Li'l Red does. He keeps stealing Li'l Red's toys! And he has NEVER shown any interest in them before! We are giving him love and attention too...can't leave any of them out when you bring a new baby in to the mix!
I totally understood where you were coming from in your reply on Korra's bath picture. We didn't want to leave her out while we were eating, so put her in for 1/2 hour. She had peed (probably more from nervousness than anything else) hence the bath. She now has a bigger area to stay in rather than the cage...just didn't have it set up that night yet! I have one of those play area gates and it had been out in the shed. It is perfect for her as a "safe spot" for now until she gets these other two wrapped around her little finger
Aww...Li'l Red just jumped up on the sofa while I was typing to you and has herself snuggled into me and Korra. A couple more days and she and Korra will be fine together...without me following them around to make sure everything is okay.
Korra does NOT like to be by herself when we are up and around. She follows me around whining like crazy. Not sure if she wants to be picked up or what, because when I do pick her up she still whines. I almost think she is looking for all her little playmates at your house!
She is fitting in very nicely and we are loving her to bits

How exciting Deb! Li'l Red is loving this :)
Ruth Charls Dodge Li'l Red adopted 5/23/10 Our little love who brings much excitement and joy to our household!
I was getting ready to go to the beach, and she jumped up on my beach bag! Ready and waiting to go! She loves to go on the boat with us and can't s...tand to be left behind when we go anywhere. I must say that she has been a blessing from the get go!
Have to add another picture that was just taken yesterday of Li'l Red...

I'm hoping you get this on your cell. L'ilRed's 1st boat ride! She loves it!

I've been meaning to send you an update, but have been super busy. On top of my typical business, we just had a graduation celebration for Deborah this past weekend and had a houseful of family and friends. A wonderful time was had by all!
Li'l Red is doing GREAT! She had a visit to our vet yesterday and was 4 lbs 14 oz. He is very happy with how she is doing. She goes in 2 weeks for her rabies and a lyme vaccine. (We have lots of ticks here and don't want to take a chance of her getting Lyme disease)
You said she would be smart and boy is she ever! She figures out what she wants and how to get it. We are all in love with her She goes almost everywhere with me and looks forward to out little jaunts. If I am home with her, she follows me everywhere. She loves to hide under my bed and attack my feet when I walk by.
She and Jasper are now getting along quite well and they play pretty well together. She sneaks into his area at night and snuggles up with him. The only issue they have is if she happens to walk by him when he is eating. Then he lets out a warning growl and she heads off to find something else to do.
A few pix...with Jasper and also with Ken's newest addition to the family...DUCKS! LOL They are just a couple of weeks old and he is making an outdoor pen for them that will be Jasper and Li'l Red safe!
Hope you are well. The new pups are adorable! I hope you are finding wonderful homes for them!

L'il Red is doing great. If there is any fault with her it is that she is just too darn cute! She is the most sociable pup I've ever had. She can't stand being left alone, or being on the floor if we are sitting. She has learned to climb up our legs! She tries to jump from the floor onto the sofa, but it is so high in the air, that she just can't do it! Of course, when she is sitting on the floor staring at you, you just have to pick her up! I have a winter weight down comforter by my side of the bed that I haven't gotten put away yet. She climbs up on top of it like queen of the hill! Just adorable! Of course I never have the camera handy at the times when she is doing cute stuff!
I'm working dayshifts this week, so she has been penned up in a smaller area than she would like to be in, but still plenty of room to run around and play with her toys. She is so happy when we come home! Her whole body quivers! She is sleeping in her crate at night and sleeps pretty much the whole night. Initially she whined when she was put to bed, (we generally are in bed late, so she is with us until we walk into our room as her crate/play area is set up right outside our door), but now she is quieter and lays down almost immediately.
She is having a few issues with potty training, but I've found if I take her to a quiet spot like the bathroom, she'll sniff around for a bit and then use the pad. Lots of patience!
For the first time last night, Jasper stayed put laying down when she was on the floor. She walked around him and sniffed him. They are getting acclimated to each other. I expect that soon they will cuddle up together and be best friends.
I realized I never answered your question about the pictures. It is fine to use any pictures I send you. I asked my daughter if it was okay to put pictures of the grandkids up and she said it was okay.
The new pups are adorable! I hope they find wonderful homes!
Talk to you soon!

Well, the evening has drawn to a close and Lil Red has done well. She has had snuggle time with everyone including my one son, Nathaniel, who I was a little nervous about. Hollie was his dog and he had been grieving since her sudden passing. He is 16 and very quiet. He came home this evening and took her from my lap and held her, cuddled her, fed her and she fell asleep in his lap. It was just awesome! Deborah is totally in love. She came with us to the airport and she and I took turns holding her on the ride home. Jared is also in love with her. My daughter, Bethany, who has the twins, stopped over and the girls were very good sitting and letting her walk around.
Jasper also had a good introduction. We have not let her down while he is out in the main living area. She was very unsure of him at first, but by the end of the evening she was fairly curious about him. He sniffed her and then just laid down in his spot in the living room.
She has been eating little portions and drinking. She voided on the pads that we have. So far everything is good!
Thanks for taking such great care of her and allowing us to be her fur-ever family!
Enjoy the pix (Deborah at the airport, my twin granddaughters Rebecca and Davianna, Jared who will be 15 on Wednesday, naptime and meeting Jasper) I haven't downloaded the pix of Nathaniel with her yet. I'll do that tomorrow and send you one or two of them.
Hope you had a great anniversary!
She's in her forever home :) we are sooooo happy :)
