Introducing Ruby, our 12 week old little white fluff ball.
She came to us all the way from Georgia just last week. I gave in after endless begging and pleading from my husband and 4 kids. I feel like I've been thrown back into new motherhood with an infant. She wakes me in the morning, she pees and poops on my floor and she puts everything in her mouth. But I do admit, she is as adorable as dogs come and I think this time will stick. (we have a bad track record with keeping dogs....our longest stretch is 2 months) My four year old, Ryan, says we'll keep her until she dies. Hopefully that means about 14 years.
She loves to play! She can run faster than anyone in the family. She can't even keep up with her own speedy little legs. She usually ends up doing a somersault. She's so little and light, only about 4 pounds. She nibbles toes, she chews shoes, and she drags everything from dish towels to bras around the house. She is a Havanese, which are very social, affectionate dogs. That also means she wants to be with us ALL the time. She cries in her kennel but hasn't ended up in our bed at night. YEAH! My friend, Kath, has a new pup and warned us about that. She loves to be wrapped in a blanket and snuggled on the couch. It has forced me to stay home and slow down just a bit.
