First Christmas

Lucy is certainly enjoying her first Christmas season here in DC. She is quite apt at present wrapping (especially with transporting rolls of wrapping paper) and is still trying to figure out exactly what snow is.

Sibling Love

We took Lucy to her first UVA football tailgate a few weekends ago. While her Wahoo collar is still too big, she did show her spirit proudly. Also in attendance at the tailgate was her half-brother, Bailey. They get along so well, and enjoy sharing. See below. :)

Scrub a Dub Dub

Lucy had her first bath a few weekends ago. For a "water dog," this retriever wasn't so sure about the whole tub thing....

Has anyone else seen the Dogbook and Catbook applications on Facebook? You can make a Dogbook page for your puppy, and then he can have other doggy friends. Farrell and I are signing Lucy and Nacho up for this party.

Welcome Home!

Lucy came home to DC this past Friday. Seemingly calm and sweet at 9 weeks of age, her personality comes out more and more every day.
Her current interests are: sleeping under couches, sleeping while spooning with our flip flops, her rawhide bone, eating rocks in our courtyard, and waking up to play at 3am. She has been so much fun, and we are looking forward to our weekend road trip to Long Island with our new pup!

It seems that this site is quickly becoming all about dogs. The one featured today is named Whisper. She belongs to the owners of Amici Salon in Virginia Beach. (This is where we had our hair and make-up done pre-wedding.) Whisper spends her days sleeping quietly on top of the reception desk. Her blanket is a sassy leopard print. She is actually very sweet, but will definitely bare her teeth if approached while on her blanket. We were amused.

The Graduate

As some of you may know, Nacho was sent to obedience camp for two weeks. He made it through without any major disasters, and is now the proud owner of a graduation certificate from The Holiday Barn.

It's a Girl!

So, in a moment of insanity, we decided to add to our crazy lives!

Introducing.....Lucy! Our cute-as-a-button golden retriever who will be coming to live with us in about a month, as soon as she is old enough!
She is about 4 weeks old in these pictures, but I just couldn't wait to share.

After a hard day on the river...

Checking things out...
Starting to get sleepy...

And out for the rest of the afternoon...

Later that day after a bath..."What, did I smell or something?"

Nacho the Sailor Dog

Ok, ok, I know not everyone finds my dog as interesting as I do. However, I was really excited because he went sailing for the first time this weekend! He came out of it better than I did. (Someone at work asked me if I lost a fight with a tanning bed.) Anyway, if I can figure out this digital camera thing, I will try to post some pictures later. - LG

Two things have alerted me to the fact that I am now old (well, solidly in my mid-20's):
1. I recently bought a sleep mask.

2. While in Miami, most of us were awake by 9:00 am to eat breakfast on the roof top pool. One reason breakfast is so cheap in Miami one eats it. But really, if this were the view, wouldn't you wake up to eat some yummy pancakes? - LG

Everyone congratulate Farrell...

There is now a "super-gene" cow in Vermont that was named after Farrell. Congratulations Farrell. It is a very cute cow. (And yes, she will receive pictures and updates as bovine Farrell gets older.)
