Introducing...

Some of you may remember that we had a terrible time in the summer, losing some of our beloved canine babies over a very short period of time.

We've snuggled up in an evening with Honey and Gary



Gary



Honey

 Lovely as that is (and it really is), we felt something was missing. Though no dog can replace another, we felt we needed some more noise in the house.

So here's Alfie... another Chihuahua



and Imogen's baby, Penni... a Lhaso Apso



 Yes, this is a very dog heavy post, full of pics of our new babies





The house is noisy again, there are mad races around the house, and it's a fight to get a comfy seat. There are times when for example a new rug was peed on twice within the first 5 minutes of it being in the house (if you aren't a dog lover, I'm sure you'll be wrinkling your nose by now) that causes big sighs of frustration, but they're babies and are worth it (have to remind hubby of this sometimes when his cleaning up).





Little did we know the house was going to get much noisier anyway...

Our parrot Phoebe, who was happily saying 'hello' to everyone, is now screeching out hubby's name at the top of her voice.


I thought this was quite amusing at first, so after Phoebe shouts out 'Andreeeeewwww" it's now followed by a small laugh, then 'c'mon good boy', which before you wonder, is not what I say to my poor husband, but the dogs... really!!

Take care

  1. The new doggies look wonderful Cheryl and I bet they are even better than their lovely photos. Glad that you have some more noise in the house! So funny about the Phoebe, I heard years ago of a parrott who learned someones credit card number, but at least it couldn't use the internet to place orders, can you imagine that. Love the way that Phoebe has been copying you, I wonder what her next phrase will be!

    I LOVE YOUR NEW BABIES!!!
    And your parrot cracks me up!
    One of my weenies is named Phoebe :)
    I had forgotten you were also a Chihuahua mommy ~ how could I forget such a thing??!!!
    Two of my babies are getting older so we are back to the peeing on the rug thing ... Oh well... they ARE worth it to me.
    Have fun!

    It's always so devastating.
    Enjoy your new little ones.

  5. Eeeee! Your doggies are so cute! I love little dogs like them. I'm so glad you're all enjoying each other's company. Too funny about Phoebe; my mother has a Macaw who screams my father's name and sounds just like my mother when he does it. :)

  6. So lovely for you to have new babies Cheryl, I'm very happy for you and family. And how cute they are - we had a beautiful Lhasa Apso for almost sixteen years, and he was the most wonderful boy - a little human in fur - so Imogen can expect many years of love from Penni, and little Alfie is soooooo little and gorgeous. I wish you many years of fun and happiness with them, and isn't it great that Gary and Honey have accepted the new arrivals. Pity about the pee, but you get that don't you! I do hope the parrot quietens down, poor thing! You have a menagerie happening Cheryl - well done - enjoy!

    I love that the parrot is getting so involved too, so funny.

  9. We really would love a small dog but with 5 cats I'm not sure if it would be fair, they are all jealous of each other so I'm sure a dog wouldn't help.
    I love your little doggies they are so, so sweet.

  10. Hmmmmm, ok I believe you. Gorgeous little doggies with such smushy mushy little faces, I could just eat them up. It's heartbreaking losing our precious pets but these little ones will bring lots of smiles back in to your lives.

  11. So lovely to see a little animal action back in your lovely home and they are SOOOO cute!!! There is something special about having animals in the house and I know for us it always feels so weird if one of our pets aren't around. So happy for you that you have two new cuties on the block xoxo
