Francisco is fast approaching his 6th birthday, a fact that i find so hard to believe. the last 6 years have been so full of life and love and living that i am not quite sure where they have gone.
so what to get a 6 year old boy for his birthday? the answer: a lifelong companion who is filled with as much energy and cheekiness as the boy himself.
meet our new puppy sookie. we had been toying with the idea of getting a dog for as long as i can remember. now we have finally taken the plunge i cant imagine ever going back. she adds a crazy dynamic to our household. she get us up and motivated when we might otherwise just be lazy. and she is just a little bundle of love.
having a puppy is harder than i thought it would be, but i am enjoying the challenge and the new learning experiences which come with her. francisco is mad about her and so happy, what more can we ask for. the only residents at the cottage who don't seem too pleased are the chickens but i am sure they will all reach some kind of harmonious middle ground soon.
