...the newest member of the Khailo clan: Matilda.

She's totally giving you the stink eye right now. I have a super adorable picture of her sleeping, but I'm not even going to bother showing it to you. She's a little fireball!! It wouldn't be representative! She's a Maltipoo!! And full of energy!! Her birthday was January 4th, so she's still just a little bug. She will end up weighing anywhere from 5-10 lbs. I'm hoping--of course--for the lighter end of that spectrum, but you get what you get. I've wanted a dog for a good nine years now and she is so sweet. The cats aren't too pleased with her, but they don't pick on her or anything, which is a good sign. They are just kind of chillin' on the couch and ottoman and minding their own business, as cats are want to do. I'm sure in time, she will be able to snuggle up next to George, he's such a lover. Moscow will take more time to adjust, I'm sure, but it will happen.

Now, I will be run completely ragged following this tiny rascal around the house all day and starting the potty training process. I've helped potty train puppies in the past, but I've never done it completely on my own. So far, so good. :) Tips and encouragement will be much appreciated!

I am happy as can be. :)

Not much knitting going on. Max started his new job today and I wanted to have his scarf finished over the weekend, but stuff got crazy...and we now have a puppy, so there is less time to work on knitting "stuff." It will be done within the next few days, however. He needs to be able to get some use out of it before it warms up too much. Also, the yarn for my mother's shirt arrived and the color is just PERFECT for her. It's the same sunny yellow that is in her kitchen (walls, kitchen aid appliances, table, accents...don't worry, though, it isn't tacky, lol). I'm really excited to get started, but probably won't get a chance till this weekend.

All right, fine. I'll show you the sleeping Matilda photo.

Enjoy your afternoon. lol
