& Diesel Makes Seven...

You know how we just got Maggie a few weeks ago? When we picked Miss Maggie, we had a hard time choosing. We really liked her brindle brother, too. But TWO PUPPIES? That would be crazy...

Well here's a newsflash for you... WE'RE CRAZY!!! We picked him up tonight. Isn't he a handsome, big boy?

Here is Diesel. Paige is holding him. Isn't he adorable?

Diesel, 12 weeks old


Maggie & Diesel playing on the front lawn. They wrestled so hard, but they were having fun!

They tumbled all over each other, and used their teeth to nibble on each other. They've gotten along rather well, with only a couple serious scuffles and growls.



Diesel is a few pounds (I'm guessing) bigger than Maggie. He's a sweet boy, and has done well thus far. He's in sleeping w/Paige tonight. We thought we'd better separate them some, so we can get some sleep around here! We're not allowing them to 'play' in the house. That rough play is for outside!

Sister & Brother

Dad & Sophia working while the pups were playing. Notice Sophia's small wheelbarrow! It was hot today, and after I snapped this one and put the camera away, Dad took his shirt off, and Sophia had to take hers off too! Then Sophia said to me, 'Mama, you go get your camera!' Oh yes, she knows how it works!

Your new addition is precious! Looks like he will be a big boy.
The comment that Sophie telling you to get the camera is cute. Our children know us all to well.

The pups are adorable together! You have your hands FULL over there.

Love the picture of Sophia workin' with her daddy. And yep, they catch on quick that the stuff they do is photo worthy!

IMHO two dogs is better than one. They can wear each other out! Both are adorable.

Oh and yes where are those shirtless photos?

oh wow! Two dogs! We have 3 but they are itty bitty.
Its so sweet how Sophia is a daddy's helper.

Stacy said...

Dad has such a cute little helper!

Diesel is adorable. I guess I should say handsome. :) The two of them look like they will be great buds.

The best thing I ever learned with littermates is to keep them apart when I wasn't home and at night. If they bond to each other it is tough for you to be Alpha mom. Good Luck. ;o)

Steffie B. said...

yeah....he is pretty darn cute! ;) Good for you!

Truly Blessed said...

Yep, you're crazy alright! Look at the SIZES of those two!

I have to say that I LOVE puppies/dogs but I don't think I could do two at once with my crew!

Congratulations on the new growth of your family!

Diesel is so cute! I would love another puppy but I think getting another boy in the house is going to be enough!

Mommy Spice said...

LOVE the puppies! I bet Maggie was happy to have her brother.

Gracie said...

ARE YOU SERIOUSLY OFF YOUR GRANNY ROCKER? TWO HUGE BREED DOGS ?
DO YOU KNOW THE FOOD BILL ALONE A YEAR COULD SEND THE WHOLE UGLY LOT OF YOU TO HAWAII?

Ugg... well, that means you won't be going anywhere soon, and I'll get to savour more pics. Okay, I'm at peace with the two dogs now :O)

You all are busier then I am - a toddler and two puppies take the cake. Although we did rescue a perpetual puppy right before we went to China - he is a 5 year old basset hound that never grew out of puppydome. Your little furrbabies are just too cute....and for Sophia, well she is beautiful as always. She should want that camera capturing her every movement. :o)
