Our newest family memeber!

We don't know what possessed us to do it, but we got a dog! Well, it's more like a puppy! She's a Yorkie and the kids are in LOVE! It's Jon's fault we got her! He's wanted a dog for a long time and I think it was love at first sight!
Sevy has named her Belle. We don't know if it's short for Princess Belle, Ladybelle (she sounds just like Lady on Lady and the Tramp when she's in her kennel!), or Tinkerbell. Or maybe Isabella--Sev's favorite Fireside Girl from Phineus and Ferb! Sevy's jobs with the new pet is to make sure she always has food and water, to take her outside and try to get her to go potty, and to take her on walks!
Teik started out frightened with her, and now I have to force him to set her down and to leave her alone! She doesn't seem to mind! She is a little princess though, insisting on laying on the couch snuggled in the pillows! She's basically fully grown too! What have we gotten ourselves into?!

Awe. She's so cute. I love the picture of the kids taking her for a walk. My kids will be so jealous!

She's adorable! I want a dog. One day, one day ...

On a side note, I love that Sevy loves "Phineas & Ferb" and Isabella. Miles loves that show; in fact, it's on at this very moment.

We've been thinking about getting a dog for a while, but I just can't find the right one...until now.

...can I have your dog?

Jon + Kat said...

Chelsea-YES! Is that bad I'm willing to give my dog away already?! She's good-I'm just adjusting to having a dog!

Atleast your dad can't give you crap. He has a little puppy, too.

You're nuts! Cute as it may be, a dog on the couch is kinda gross (you know they don't wipe after they poo right? and that you have to clean up the poo that they just leave on the floor, oh and pets never potty train).

Nancy said...

Not to be totally rude - I hope you love her. Fun for the kids and all. My my you are growing up and getting cute pets for you kids and everything. Does the incredibly petite and cute puppy dog really fulfill Jon's desire to have a dog?

I have read that dogs are so good for kids. They learn empathy and responsibility. However, it is not the kids or the dad that is ultimately the one who works the hardest for the dog...it is the mommy. But you are a great Mommy and are totally up to the challenge.

It is super cute. Have fun!
