Our Home Has Grown By 4 Feet

Well, she's here! Little Miss Ruby. She flew here from Ohio on Thursday and Mr. Schmitty picked her up from the airport. He called when he was about three minutes from the house and I got the kids all ready. I told them to sit on the floor and be still. I thought she might be nervous and I didn't want them to freak her out.

Mr. Schmitty came in and placed her on the floor. The pictures we saw of her did her absolutely NO justice. She was more cute than I imagined! I swear she is the most adorable puppy I have ever seen! She ran right over to the kids, tail wagging, and jumped up to kiss all of their faces. She is so sweet and friendly.



Here are a few moments from the weekend with the new addition:

1. T. "Mommy, Ruby is pooping on the living room floor! Ewww...it looks like toothpaste is being squeezed out!"

2. R. is crying.

"What's the matter honey?"

"Ruby keeps stealing my sock!"

The puppy completely pulled her sock off of her while she was standing and ran away with it!

3. Besides potty training a puppy we are still potty training R. Mr. Schmitty was putting her pull-up on and said, "Now remember R., if you have to go potty, don't forget to go outside."

4. I sometimes tell Mr. Schmitty that I get a little baby tug every so often. Not that I am going to have any more kids, the baby factory is definitely closed. But you know, that pull in your heart that makes you miss when they were infants. The first night Ruby was here, well, the kids kinda drove me crazy. I know they were excited and all but it was very chaotic. After they went to bed the puppy curled up in my lap and fell to sleep. Mr. Schmitty asked me, "Will she do to satisfy your baby cravings?" I replied, "Actually, I was thinking of putting the kids up for adoption and getting 2 more puppies."

I think you are so brave to be potty training both a child and house training a dog.

We had a dog until he died last year and I have been holding off getting another one simply because I can't stand the thought of going through the training process again.

And I laughed at your last paragraph. I too, get the baby-hunger now and then even though I am 48 and just starting menopause, so absolutely out of the running now. But, I miss those baby kisses, I really do.

LOL! Putting the kids up for adoption! HA!

That is one cute doggie though! What kind is she? I couldn't tell.

Mrs. Schmitty said...

She is a Cavachon, half Bichon-Frise and half Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She's as sweet as she is cute!

She is adorable!

I wish my 2-year-old's poop looked like toothpaste. It would make it a lot easier to clean up.

TOO!CUTE!

We are thinking about getting a puppy but aren't sure if the girls are still too young. I'll be staying tuned for your Ruby stories to see how it goes in your house. Consider yourselves my guinea pigs, if you will :)
