Puppy Love

Here's Coco!



What a trip. Chicago enjoyed 12 inches of snow on Tuesday, which delayed my 5 hour round trip to Madison Wisconsin to get little pup.
I also enjoyed the earthquake Wednesday morning at 4:00 am. In the meantime, New Jersey enjoyed 12 inches of snow on Wednesday. Everywhere I was and wanted to be it was snowing!

Thursday was clear and dry and I went to the farm to pick up Coco. It was such a joy to watch the cotton candy sunrise over the fields of northern Illinois. I forgot how beautiful a snow covered flat landscape can be.

Coco was the first puppy to leave the farm and she had a bit of crying when we drove away but we soon settled in together.

She was able to meet some of my Illinois friends before going home. Sheila helped us so much at O'Hare - I could not have managed without her! Thanks, Sheila!

I arrived home after an "on-board" flight delay about 8pm.

Chillin' with her new friends

Me trying to stop a moving a target -


Needless to say, my DH is in love with his new valentine.


I had a wonderful trip filled good friends, food and quilts. I'll share more this week.

We had a chocolate lab in the past and we now have a 10 year old yellow lab. They are the best dogs...very loyal. Just beware of the cute faces they make to get a treat from you. It works every time.
Good luck with her,
Karen

OMG! What a beautiful puppy. You're so lucky, my Boomer is now 3 1/2 and still not well behaved! A puppy is one of the best thing in the world!
