happy birthday mom (aka, my personal penguin)!

I can't let today pass without giving a shout out to the woman who raised me since it is her natal day!

Mom, I hope you have had a great day despite having a bike fall off the end of the car while driving on the interstate. At least you get to be with Maeve and Will who think you are amazing (and are right about that) and hopefully eat some yummy salsa. We are sorry we can't be there to celebrate with you and let you snuggle Daisy. Know that we are grateful for all that you do for us from clipping doggy treat coupons to sending me countless packages with teaching stuff to being my personal penguin. We love you lots and hope that the day is just as special as you!

Molly, Kenny, and Daisy

and for your own personal enjoyment, please read this book. warning: it may make you sob like a baby, but its good.

Our sweet puppy

Daisy arrived a week ago Friday on Sept 10th. The previous day had been Kenny's birthday (sorry about no post. A full time job really limits me.)

Oh and here I am on my first day of school...

So back to Daisy. Her flight out of Houston was delayed, so although we arrived in San Antonio to get her at 8:30pm, she did not get to us until 11:15pm. She was a wee bit traumatized, and I think a little wary of these two eager people who were constantly calling her Daisy. However, when we let her out to pee, she was bounding like a happy pup. The whole ride home from San Antonio was quiet with her on my lap and Kenny driving.

Her first week has been fun/tiring/exciting. She had her first vet appointment with our neighbor who said she was the cutest pup there that day. (Duh) She has successfully pottied outside a lot and had few accidents inside. She has learned to love her toys and her crate to sleep in. She has won the hearts of all around, and she has webcamed with one set of grandparents and her cousins Maeve and William. Maeve declared that Daisy is a cutie-patootie and I do have to say I agree.

She has been a wonderful addition to our family and a perfect companion when Kenny is at work or at school. (especially on those days when 8th grade students are not so fun.) She is my little snuggle bug.
