The Avengers – Two Weeks Old

They were two weeks old yesterday, but I took their pictures for their two week update today.  It’s just the way things worked out.  And I’ll admit, I got a little carried away.  They are just SOOO adorable.  And they are getting cuter by the minute.  Less like little guinea pigs, more like puppies…  🙂  It’s so nice seeing them grow and change, they are doing so in leaps and bounds.  And while yes, they are just camera phone pictures, they’re better than my very first digital camera could take WAY back when.  😛

Another puppy update. :)

Today, I am mentally and physically exhausted.  A perfect day to share puppy pictures – because otherwise you’d be stuck reading me grouse about it.  😉  And well, as I’m bound and determined to choose joy, this is a good chance for me to do so.  While I’m feeling completely thrashed, there’s still so much to be thankful for, so much to take joy in.

With that in mind, here are a few puppy pictures!

The pictures are from the eighth, so are a few days old.  But I didn’t think you’d mind too much.  Will try to snap some new ones soon.  🙂  Maybe during a trip outside.

Saying Goodbye (a photo of a girl and a chihuahua).

Well, today the girlie and I took Neddie to the airport.  After a year of being a part of our family, it was time for him to go home.  It’s a long time to welcome a dog into your lives only to have to say good bye.  We’ll miss him (I already do).

I just took the girlie to school… and coming back downstairs alone, without Ned there to greet me was kinda weird.  Usually he’s the first one to start “talking” with me when I come home.  Well, after the parrot anyway.  This time, the dogs all just stayed laying down.  Hardly any of them even looked up to say “hey mom!”.

A couple of days ago we took Lily-Ann and the Nadster out to one of my favourite dogs-allowed parks here in town.  The river is really high right now, flooding over many of the banks – including the banks at the park.  Walking along the path in one area, the girl was able to stroll right into the river without ever leaving the path.  Ned thought she was nuts.  He gave the water a sniff, but there was no coaxing on her part that would get him to put even the tiniest tip of his toe in.

On our way back to the car, the girlie sat down with the boy – on a ledge that now overhangs the river (but usually just edges the path).  I stayed out of the way, and so did Damon.  And the two of them just had a private chat.  Their own personal goodbye.  I was able to sneak out my camera without interrupting the moment:

I absolutely love how Ned put his paw onto her leg – as if to tell her that it’s okay.

Today, when she and I took him to the airport, Lily-Ann told me “It’s okay Mom.  We still love him, we’ll always love him.”  She was a lot stronger than I was.  I think having that special time with him at the park really did make a difference for her.  Afterwards, in the car, she said “I miss him already”.  And yeah…  I do too.  It helps to know that very soon (May 27th) Rooty-Toot is expecting his progeny.  It will be nice to have a couple of his mini-me’s running around in no time.

Thanks Emilie, for lending us your wonderful boy.  Make sure to give him a big hug from his Saskatoon family as soon as he arrives.  Ned is an absolute love, and he’s definitely left a hole here.

I took lots of pictures that day in the park – but the rest will have to wait until I’m finished editing all my other work related shoots first.
