Children and puppies

I dropped Sparky off with my parents about 2 weeks before Thanksgiving, so I didn’t have to wait too long to see him again. I went back to Kansas for Thanksgiving. One brother from Loveland, CO came as well. My other brother, his wife, and three sons came down from Kansas City, so my parents had a houseful of people to carry around the puppy allll day and make sure his little paws never hit the ground.

My nephews are 9, 7, and 5 years old and they aren’t used to being around puppies but they all were very gentle and picked him up properly. They did a great job!

Sparky made sure that the instant a lap became available, he was sitting on it.

“Moose! Dude! I say this with love, but man, get a Tic-Tac or something!”

Lots more holiday pics coming up over the next week or two – stay tuned!

    When I was a little girl, we used to have a German Shepherd/Collie mix. We named her Sparky. She was my love. She ate everything we gave her and had puppies every six monhths. What did we know then?

    Sparkie is a cutie pie!
