Meet Layla the Puppy





Hello there everyone! Sorry this Blog took so long. Meg's power-cord to her computer took a dive after too many nibbles from Jack-the-Cat. We are now the proud owner of a new puppy! She is a 5-1/2 month old Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Sheppard Mix. It is absolutely amazing how well Layla and Jack get along. I think it helps that they are the same size! It is great having a pet that is excited to see you for more than two minutes and then begging for an ice cube, sorry Jack. We got her from the local pound last Friday and took her to Lake McCounghy in Nebraska with a few friends, friends of their's, and two other dogs. We are working on house breaking her and it is going very well. A few nights of interupted sleep haven't been so bad yet, and it is good practice for those unmentionable things down the road. Of course the first toy I bought her was a plush football toy. I am sure Meg and I will have many more stories and blogs filled with cute mishaps and cute pictures. Here are some of those pictures to make you fall in love too...

Too cute !! And love the name!! That name is a "song" from my college days - I can't share the memories it brings back, but those were the days!! Enjoy Layla and have fun with the potty training !! Send more pictures !!

HI Meg and Chris,
Let's face it...living in CO, you gotta have a puppy! What a sweetie. I am sure the two "siblings" will have great fun and be good company for each other when you are back to school. Your Virginia family loves reading your "out west" notes and wishes you well.
love, Aunt Karey and the gang
