Mia ~ son's puppy

MIA 20 weeks

Mia is 22 weeks old and is full of fun she likes a yoyo to play with through out the day
She was trying to sleep but I gave her a yoyo to play with and all she did was pop it on the floor .

Mia is so soft and keeps your toes warm when she sits on you
she is a friendly loveable member of our family and loves to ride in my sons ute when she is allowed too.She is bathed on a Sunday and loves it which makes our job easier.

She is full of life and gives us lots of cuddles , fun play times through out the day
She hasn't got the steps down pat yet she jumps one and runs into the other one but as she grows she will be able to jump them all

My days are very full , as I vac Mia runs back and forth barking and is so funny when I swept the floors then do the mopping , at the moment she is inside due to her being able to get out of our yard and I like to know where she is through the day time

August is almost gone and the flowers in my garden are starting to grow which means spring isn't far away , Tassie has been cold and wet this week and for a few weeks now great for watching dvd's , I get free ones from the library , have also got craft books to fill in the time when in doors but I'm looking forward to sunny days so I can enjoy outdoors, hang washing out to dry instead of using my power.
Today I took Mia for a needle and then she came home and slept all afternoon she'll be ready for a huge play tonight, she loves her time running back and forth after a ping pong ball
I best go to post office now the rain has stopped.
It's 16 weeks or 4 months to Christmas today and inbetween all that we have 3 birthdays , school holidays and a busy 3rd term coming up

Puppy moved in

My son has a puppy she is 11 weeks old and we have had her for 3 weeks , it's been fun and hard work watching her over the time we have had her in our home.A puppy is so much like a baby NO has become a word I use a lot these days as I teach her right from wrong.She has became a great friend and I look forward being round her of a day.

She is finding her teeth are a great tool and her gums have been so swollen with teeth coming through the last week or so , she loves to play with a yoyo and pinch my bright pegs.At the moment she is alseep under the blanket next to me all cuddled up and snuggled in tight.

Mia is cute and loveable
