Since I had the camera out....

This was also taken in the early hours this morning, but doesn't he look great? He's sitting at the top of the stairs that lead into the top of my backyard while I'm sitting on one of the lower stairs (I think!) and obviously, he's looking down. But this is Ginni's proud Papa, Oscar.
I think they are both looking at Ginni, but don' they look beautiful? I wish I knew how to get rid of Oscar's alien eyes, but I still like the picture.And lastly, but certainly not least, her highness the Princess Goober. I took this picture, believe it or not, while Ginni was sitting in my lap. Chocolate found this fascinating and watched us very carefully. Since I never seem to get pictures of her that have her ears even a little up, I quickly snapped this shot over the wiggling puppy.

Settling In

Who could resist this face? This was taken EARLY this morning when the sun was just rising. Ah, life with a puppy, the early mornings, the late nights.....the puppy breath to make it all worthwhile :) This one is later in the morning, I think. She's discovered the hose and thinks it makes a fine toy. I couldn't work the camera fast enough, but Ginni was pouncing on it and picking it up and trying to shake it for all she was worth. Quite adorable.

This last picture is pitiful, but its the only one I have so far of them all together. Chocolate's in the back, getting ready to find the perfect place to you-know-what, Oscar's looking between me and Ginni as if to say "Mom, what's she doing?" and Ginni has discovered a tree stump.

I had commented that Ginni seemed much more calm than her daddy, but I have learned in the last 24 hours that she was just settling in. She has all the gusto and enthusiasm of her Daddy. From the moment Oscar came home, he was fearless, into everything and always moving a mile a minute--Ginni is the same way.

I never saw Morrigan as a puppy, but I have it on good authority that Ginni is her spitting image, down to the little white spot on her belly. Awful big shoes to fill, but we shall try!

Ginni's Debut

Okay, so Oscar's daughter came home today. I am eternally grateful to Jim for going and picking her and picking her up for me at the Anderson, SC show today. Earlier this week, Catie FINALLY sent some pictures and so I'll share those here first. I haven't been able to take many today as I've been running around like a crazy person, but that's besides the point.

This first picture is of "piglet" (as Catie called her) on the left and "Oscar Minor" on the right. The puppies are 8 weeks old.

This next picture is of the whole crew.
The puppy laying down toward the left front is the one that I have kept. Her name is now Ginni and I hope to have pictures up in the morning that you can really see, but here is one to tide us over.

She's darling, very sweet, like her father, but calm and patient, unlike her father.

I'm already excited about showing her in the fall. I know I should wait for her to mature more, but I'll be too excited and so I'm sure we'll be out in the puppy classes!
