The reason for my silence ...


... is this little guy.  Meet Buddy.  He's a 9 week old Puggle (Beagle and Pug mix) and joined our family last Saturday before Easter.  Don't let that innocent face and those sad little puppy eyes fool you though.  He is quite the ball of energy and has officially kicked my booty with all of his puppy antics (now I distinctly remember why we chose not to have another baby lol!).  Hence my lack of free time and absence from blogging.  He is a lot of fun though and the boys absolutely love him.  Knock on wood he pretty much has this house training thing down pat and the weather (up until today) has cooperated so we have been outside A LOT which has helped speed things along in that area.  He has decided that he REALLY likes piggies, especially the painted toenail variety, which means my poor feet are constantly under attack.  Ouch!  I'm working on a schedule with him though and he seems to be adapting to it pretty well so hopefully I'll be able to get back to scrapping (and back to blogging) soon!  :)

Oh, he's SO adorable! I agree with you on how much work puppies are. They are the combination of a newborn and a two year old who gets into everything. My lab is 6 months old so things are getting a TAD better but her energy levels are out of the roof!
