I have to say, getting another puppy is about the best thing we have ever done. Who cares that I sleep in 2 hour intervals and that the temperature at 3 a.m. is 36 degrees? Who cares that it takes 10 times longer to do anything because I keep stopping to take a picture or remove little "h" from the chicken coop? Hamish adores his sister and she loves him right back! The chickens are still deciding...
I cannot believe how quickly time flies by. Our sweet fuzzy pup, celebrated his first birthday. We picked him up from the breeder when he was 8 weeks old the same day we picked up the keys to our house so it’s been a great marker of time for us. Although, Hamish’s transition has been much quicker than our progress on the property, it is still a great place to be a dog. He has so much territory to explore and so many birds to chase. He continues to be a delightful addition to my every day. He’s just getting so big, I think it might be time for another puppy…
We're finding that everything takes 10 times longer to accomplish when you have a puppy. Hamish helps:
- collect fallen apples
- with the recycling
- pull weeds
- Keith pick up leaves
- unpacking the boxes
- lining the shelves
- putting the grill together
What a good dog!
Keith knew a guy in college named Hamish and has been trying to name something that ever since. Thankfully, we are adopting a baby girl from China so the name didn't make that list. For Christmas I received a puppy bed with "Hamish" embroidered on it so clearly it was a done deal. Now that we have our fuzzy little tank, Hamish (HEY-mish) seems like the perfect name. We've only had him for 7 weeks and I have hundreds of pictures already; he's so cute I can't stop myself. A typical day in the life of this sweet blonde consists of eating (with gusto), sleeping (often), running around the property in search of fallen apples, more sleeping, chewing on everything (including me), and some cuddling. We know it wont be long before he is too big to pick up so we're getting our fill now.
