We have finally decided on a name for the puppy: Lacy. Lacy's White Lightening. She is a lively little pup. Very curious, exciteable, cute, kissy and adorable. Abby has been soooo patient. She rumbles a warning growl both for the puppy and us. Kind of like, "She's touching me, Mom!!!! DAD!!!! the puppy is touching me!!!" Yesterday she gave the pup her first spank, but nobody saw it. Both were fine afterwards and the pup thought twice about trying to nurse or chew on Abby's ear.
We have now had her 1 week and I have only had to clean up after her a handful of times, mostly our fault for not getting her outside in time. I awoke Saturday morning 5:55 a.m. to hear Hans say, "Mom is going to be mad, she peed in our room!" Alan had gotten up and let her out without putting her outside. She holds it all night long and well that's all we can expect!!!
Lacy's family is fine too. We are keeping busy with basketball clinic for Collin and Hans and Erin is doing a little cheerleading clinic. Those are at 9, 10, & 11 a.m. on Saturdays. At noon mom crashes :-) Chris got the tractor out yesterday and is heading out to spread some ferilizer today, Lord willing. It must be spring. It snowed some Saturday night, for a short while the wind howled and it snowed almost horizontal to the ground for about an hour and then quit. Weird weather, at least we did not get the tornadoes other states did.
