p is for puppy

It's no secret that I love a puppy.  Puppies are one of the best things in life.  I was looking at puppy photos of Phoenix and Laura recently and I came across this little gem.  It's one of my favorites of Phoenix. 

I've told the story before, but I'll give you the abridged version.  We had a geranium in the garden that was about 1.5 feet tall and full of flowers.  It was huge.  A few weeks after she came to live with us we were outside with her.  We turned our backs for approximately three seconds and turned back to find our tiny three pound puppy sitting in the middle of a very flat and very chewed geranium.  Notice the little piece of flower in her mouth.  She looks so innocent.  And yet...

"What flower, Mommy?"

It seems history is destined to repeat itself.  Little chubby baby Laura liked a salad, too.  Since Phoenix had long since destroyed any trace of flowers in the garden long before Laura arrived, she just resorted to chewing up huge chunks of grass.  You just cannot look away from a hungry, chewy puppy. Notice the grass in her mouth and innocent look...just like older sister.


"I'm innocent, Mommy."

I love my furbabies.

I just got home from playing golf and my two furbabies smothered me in so many kisses I could hardly breath! Little Liz has taken to bringing sticks in the house and chewing them to bits on the sofa.

Your babies are just darling!

I wish I could hold them on my lap just for a few minutes or so!

Aren't puppies the most precious thing ever? Except for baby horses, of course.

The looks on their faces and the grass in their mouths is great.

Puppies are adorable and yours certainly fit the title. I love going to the huge dog shows when they come to San Francisco since they usually have so many breeds, with both adult dogs and puppies. It is so much fun to see them all, from giants to the tiniest dogs.

You tell that story of Phoenix and the Geranium so well :-)

I think I just heard all the dog lovers in Japan (and there are lots of them) squee at the sight of those adorable puppies! How did I know you were going to write about puppies? Well, I thought you were going to write about Phoenix but you so cleverly managed to include Laura in this post too :) Both Phoenix and Laura look so tiny back then! Well more so Laura since Phoenix is still a small doggie :)

If only I didn't have allergies. Those cute little eyes would be the end of me too.
