Puppy Love

The kids have been wanting an inside dog for awhile, and I would have to say that I have been wanting one too.  So, when Ella put a puppy on her santa list, we agreed to it.  Marc had to take a little more convincing, but he finally agreed.  We lost Katie, our chocolate lab a few weeks ago (she was 14), so the timing was good. 

Christmas morning, when the kids awoke, there was a new puppy in the house.  Braden was the first one up and I was sleeping on the couch with the puppy so her whinning did not wake the kids.  I think Braden was a little shocked that there really was a puppy.  A little later, I put Sophie in the bed with Ella, and at first Ella was trying to push her away since she did not know what was licking her. When she realized it was a puppy, it was priceless.  She immediately sat up, and in a high pitched voice, very sweetly said "My puppy!"  It was so sweet!! 

Ella said that she wanted a Yorkie, but she got a miniature poodle.  The kids named her Sophie Kate.  I would have to say that she is a really good puppy.  She is doing well with potty training, and she always had someone to play with.  I think a little more than she wants at times, but at least she sleeps well at night!! :) And I must add that I love having a puppy in the house!! I miss my two poodles we had growing up, and Sophie reminds me of them so much!!  She is really loved by all- even Marc, who says that he cannot believe that he has a foofy dog named Sophie!
