Meet Princess Sophie....


Well, today was the big day! We got to meet our new puppy, Princess Sophie. Is there anything cuter than a new puppy???? Needless to say I was very thankful for a digital camera today as we shot photo after photo. I've tried to narrow it down a bit (from over 100) and hope you enjoy our new little girl.





Steve was a little nervous that she might not like him (Sumo was quite afraid of him initially!) but she took right to him!

















She is a very sweet little girl. I am just sure that Sumo will love her at first sight!!!

















K fell instantly in love with Sophie and I do believe it just may give her cause to visit home once in awhile this Fall!! How can one resist such a sweet face!!















Not only were the puppies sweet and extremely well mannered, but the mom (Ginger) and Grandmother (Molly) were there and both had excellent temperaments. (Here is Sophie looking up at her mom Ginger.)












Since the puppies are just under 5 weeks old they are still nursing. Ginger stood very still while her little pups got drinks all around. Here is Sophie getting a little drink without her siblings around. Lucky girl!! The puppies have sharp little teeth now and have started eating some puppy food as well. Ginger won't let them nurse for long with those sharp teeth!!










We are very excited to have our little Sophie come live with us. Hopefully we can pick her up sometime before Labor Day weekend. (Still working out the details of how to pick her up.) Our friends down the road are also getting one of the puppies. (It's actually her dad who has the puppies!) It will be nice for Sophie to have a litter mate so close!



Sophie is really excited to meet the rest of the kids and, of course, Sumo. Steve has already had a talk with Sumo and made him promise not to eat Sophie. Now he'll have to have a little talk with Sophie and make her promise not to bug Sumo to death. And we should have peace!!














Puppy kisses all around!













Until Next Time...

You are so lucky! That is a beautiful little puppy, and looks so sweet. It makes me want a little puppy to play with, too =)

Puppy breath! I'm really quite envious - I so miss having a dog, but being gone from the house for 10 hours a day, it's just not possible right now. I'd better go by another lotto ticket ;-) Congrats on Sophie, she's beautiful!

I am a long-time lurker (via the Loopy Ewe) and a first time commenter. I am so, so, so excited about Sophie!!! She is so cute. I just got a golden retriever puppy, who is now 7 months old ... "just," she was 2 months old when she came home! How time flies! I cannot believe how much happier my house is now, and of course everything is "Gracie this" and "Gracie that," but it's worth it. I just want to give her a big hug, she is so cute! Congratulations. You (and Sumo) will love the new addition to the family.

Marianne said...

Princess Sophie is just darling, and she looks so huggable! I assume she'll be staying with her mom until she is at least 8 weeks old?

Congratulations! I know you will all enjoy her! And, I bet once Sumo gets used to having a little puppy around, he'll love the company! :-)

Those are the most darling puppies. An no one ever forgets "puppy breath" either. It's burned early into the memory banks. Have fun!
