April 21. Day 111. Just dropping in
Yes, that eau de puppy is simply irresistible. Everyone wants to get a whiff of that cute puppy smell.
He is a delight and provided you don't mind puppy bite marks on your limbs the little man loves a game and today his playmate was my niece Miss Cleo.
There is nothing quite like the way the whole back half of a puppy wags in harmony with the tail or how they gallop and frolic, ears pinned back with excitement and paws everywhere.
It's no wonder the number of unscheduled visitors has grown exponentially. Truth is we are having more visitors now than when we brought the new baby home 15 years ago. Truth is I am in a better state to welcome people in than in the new mum phase AND the pup is far more ready and willing to perform for visitors than a bub. It is also true that that both of he new arrivals create a fair amount of work by weeing and pooing all the time but it's a small price to pay.
In the words of one unknown (at least to me) genius "If you can look at a dog and not feel vicarious excitement and affection, you must be a cat".
