Spring break 2017

Spring break 2017 will forever be known in our house as puppy week. The life changing, stressful, albeit joyful week we added Tikka to our crew. She is still here! As it turns out, she had an infection from the breeder that was making her unable to hold all of that stinkiness in, UGH! With a little help from our vet and a lot of patience, she's on the mend. The girls have had a great week of learning new responsibilities, and laughing like crazy at their new pup.

Tikka got her first taste of our land this week, and seemingly loved hiking the trails with us!
While Bryndel is still pretty tentative, this is what Hadley looks like after she's rough and tumbled with her dog.

They've been really careful to keep her off the carpet, and seriously entertained. It should come as no surprise that calm and gentle Piper, has been the best at training her to sit on command!

Tikka, pronounced Tea kah and named after Kyle's favorite hunting rifle, is the 12 week old pup we added to our family over the weekend! The jury is still out on how long she'll last (or how long I'll last, is more like it!), but she is definitely loved :) She's a Shorkiepoo, a Shitzu Poodle mom and a Yorkie dad and is thus far all of 3.5 pounds. So far, she's been full of love, poop in all the wrong places, whiney nights, and a lot of joy for the girls.

Concert Weekend

We traveled on over to Grandma's house for the weekend, and not only got in some special cousin time but also took in a Jason Gray concert! It was a wonderful way to celebrate Grandpa's first six months in heaven.
