I am so excited to share my news with all of you.  Eight months ago we adopted Lacey.

Lacey_0She was 8 weeks old when we got her from the shelter.  Best guess breed was determined to be Labrador/Hound mix.  We all laughed as she started to grow into her ears and to our amazement started to have more features of a Lab/Chihuahua mix, including her persistent personality.  She is a handful 24/7.

But here is the news, we adopted another puppy.  So now our 8 month old Lab has a sister who is 5 months old.

Brandy 5 monthsBrandy is a German Shepherd/Lab mix and has a mild-mannered lovable personality. Lacey loves Brandy and they get along famously.  All of Lacey’s energy is now focused on her new sister and they play all day long.

I just might be enjoying these two new puppies as much as this blueberry shortcake.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
