Yesterday was the start of a new chapter in our life…puppy parenthood!!! We left Hannibal mid-morning and headed towards Kirksville/Pagliai’s. Yes, again! My parents decided to join us and meet their new grandchild…and the double-cheese-and-green-pepper-pizza (a staple in their college years) was just a bonus 🙂
After lunch we made our way to Unionville and met the folks from Lazy T Bulldogs to pick up little Hazel! We had a really great experience with our breeders so if anyone you know is looking for a French or English bulldog, I would definitely recommend these folks. They’re just the nicest people and it’s obvious that they really care about their pups!
Hazel was a little shy at first but she warmed up pretty quickly. Chris thinks she remembered us from our first visit…right 🙂 Here’s a picture of our new family!!
How cute is this collar accessory my mom knitted for Hazel?? I sent her this link and she ran with it. She’s pretty talented! She also crocheted a little pink blanket for Hazel’s kennel. Do you think this dog is going to be spoiled?
Hazel did great on the 5 hour drive home. We stopped at a couple of times, but this is what she did most of the way…
Then the fun really began when we got home… 🙂
Believe it or not, Hazel hardly cried at all when we put her in the kennel for the night. The breeder sent her home with a little blanket that smelled like her brothers and sister, which seemed to make her feel more at home.
I worked from home today and did a lot of what I like to call “scoop and runs”. When she started to squat, I would scoop her up and run for the back door!! As expected, there were a couple of accidents…but nothing that couldn’t be fixed with some spot shot or a little lysol! Hazel’s favorite part of the day was watching herself on the computer. Even she thinks she’s adorable! 🙂
Up next…puppy training classes start tomorrow night!!!
