Happy Weekend!

We got a puppy! And her name is Noodle! She’ll be in our home as a foster puppy for the first month, and then we can decide to adopt her for good. She had a rough beginning in life, but things are looking up for Miss Noodle. Hopefully our kitty Lady Bird will get used to her soon! So that’s what we’re doing this weekend – learning how to be puppy parents. What about you, what are you up to for Memorial Day?

(This photo isn’t Noodle – I haven’t had a chance to get a good photo of her in an outfit yet. Promise to post as soon as I do!)

I’m such a sucker for chocolate in pretty paper.

    Bless your heart for rescuing a pooch! I am COUNTING down the days until I will join big-hearted folk like yourself. Good luck with her. Puppies (as I am sure everybody has told you) are like babies. SO much work. But they are so darn cute they make up for it!

  • What kind of dog is Noodle? It’s going to be fun, having a puppy! Congrats!

    I smell craft beers and food for this weekend! Hope you have a great one yourself!

  • Congrats on the puppy! It is hard at first, we got our rescue puppy “Frank” three years ago, and he is still a joy every day. Have a great weekend!

  • Congratulations on your puppy! And good for you for fostering. I keep thinking about it, but I don’t think I’d ever be able to say good-bye and then I’d end up with 20 dogs ;) Have a great weekend with your Noodle!

  • Congratulations on the newest addition to the family!!! I remember when we adopted our second dog, Jake. We had a 14-day “probation period” … after 4 hours with him, we called the rescue and told them that we were going to keep him. It’s been 8 years.

    As for this weekend, I’ll be photographing two barn weddings in Vermont (officially starting this year’s wedding season) and then some yard work and BBQ on Monday.

    Happy Memorial Day weekend!
