My bag, a glimpse into my life.

Rogers, who we are registering as Aes Sidhe Captain America, left us to go live with his forever family.  Of course, they have a thirty day trial period to ensure things work out first, but I’m confident in this placement.  I really do think he’s a perfect fit for them…  and the picture they sent me earlier this evening – of him all snuggled in for a snooze under his new Daddy’s chin, the two of them laying together on the couch – just further cemented it.

It’s always a weird few days after someone leaves.  Whether it’s a puppy going to their forever home, or a client dog who is returning home after being a part of our pack for several months…  when someone leaves the entire dynamic of the house shifts.  And that’s happening here now.

So…  onto today’s challenge:  “in your bag”.

My bag used to be a purse.  Because I used to be a girl.  Now I’m a mom, and more fierce than any girl…  Grrrl, gurl, or Woman works for me.  And my bag is not a purse…  it really is a bag.  And instead of a compact, lip colour, and moisturizer I carry a spare pair of pajamas for the kid, snacks, reusable bags, cloth pads, and cute princess and fairy bandages.

A person’s bag (if they carry one) can reveal a lot about that person.  You really do get a real quick glimpse into their life and the things that are important to them.  Amidst the papers and bits of “stuff” one just naturally accumulates (that needs to be cleared out every so often) are bits of treasure and parts of a life well lived, or wasted, depending on your point of view.

pjs, strawberry bags, dog paw wallet, treats, cloth pads in a plastic baggy... all the momcentials.

…all the essentials in one place.

Tomorrow?  “Something you’re reading”.  After that?  “Happiness”.  Something that having all the right things in your bag can help ensure… at least when you have a little one about.  😉

Snuggling with Captain America

It was a rather long night last night, and today was just as long.  Lots of work, both personal and business related.  So I hope you’ll forgive me tonight if I’m not up to writing much.  Instead, enjoy a cute snapshot of the girl and Rogers that I took yesterday with my phone:

Two of my precious babies, being precious together. 😉

Time for formal introductions!

The puppies are now three days old (well, in another hour the oldest will turn three days old anyway) and I think it’s time we formally introduced them all.  So here they are!

Natalia aka Natasha aka Black Widow

NATALIA

Natalia is both the first born and the smallest of the puppies.  But this little girl is a fighter, who can charm just about anyone.  With her small size and huge will she is an absolute doll.

 

Steve Rogers aka Steven Rogers aka Captain America

ROGERS

Rogers may have started off as the smallest of the boys, but he has quickly caught up to his brothers.  This little dood knows exactly what he wants and how to get it.  He’s determined and won’t take no for an answer.

 

Bruce Banner aka The Hulk

BRUCE

Bruce is a mild mannered little fellow, who is super sweet…  until it’s time to feed, and then watch out!  Our darling little man turns into a bit of a monster who’s only got one thing on his mind.  Thankfully he calms right back down once he’s had his fill and is content to cuddle and snooze away the day.

 

Tony Stark aka Iron Man

TONY

Oh my.  What can one say about Tony.  He’s a total charmer this one.  His cocky attitude can be delightful, but it can also be a little obnoxious too.  We love him for it though.  This is one boy who thrives on constant attention.

 

Thor the Asgardian

THOR

One look at Thor and you know he’s a world apart from his brothers.  He is large, strong, and self-assured.  This boy never lacks for good humour, and is always happy to belly up to the bar.  That said, he never uses his strength to bully, instead, he can often be found cuddled up next to his sister – serving as a physical blockade against their more boisterous siblings.

If you hadn’t guessed by now, yes…  the puppies are all named after members of the Avengers.  We’d bounced a few ideas off one another in terms of themes before this one stuck.  It just seems to work.

We had no problem at all deciding who would be named after whom once we’d agreed they’d all be Avengers.  Each of them has a personality that just clicks with one of the characters.  And true, their personalities at this age may not end up being accurate of their personalities as they grow and learn, but those basic fundamentals?  Yeah, I’ll wager they’ll stay the same.  😉

 

 


And my thanks to Damon for holding the babies while I snapped shots of them with my iPhone.  I was pretty obnoxious with my alpha personality requests (tilt him this way, move your hand over there, I need more light…).  LOL  So, thanks.
