My little girl is growing up.




My little Juno has a runny bum. I gave her some new puppy gourmet mix to her kibble and it disagreed with her even though she loved it. Either that or she got into some duck poo. I'm not sure which since she ate both in the same week. However, I discontinued the wet food that I was adding and went back to her normal stuff. I'm very good at pulling things out of her mouth, but who knows. She's pretty happy though, she's still lively and running around tearing things up. The vet told me to give her some metronizidole and 1/2 tab of Pepto bismol and wait and see for a couple of days. He also gave me his home phone number just in case. And yes, I got another email from the shelter, but I just told them she had an appt for next Wednesday. So chances of her getting spayed for the end of the month are slim since I have to wait for test results. So there. I put it out there in the internet land and seems my contract is enforceable, though a few had an attitude like I was trying to put one over on the shelter. The dog's health or well being didn't seem to be of any consideration. However, I'll make sure her health is stable for surgery. My first priority is her health. She's shedding (you don't want to know what my lululemon's look like by the end of the week) and her adult hair is coming in on her back. Lots of people keep saying "Oh, look, Marley and me dog!". She likes other dogs and is walking very well on her leash.

She's darling! I especially love the picture of her with the stuffed bunny. Too cute.

I found your blog recently and have been devouring your entries. I've been dealing with infertility, too, for several years now. My journey has gone in a different direction (we have one toddler conceived via a donor egg) but we're exploring adoption for adding to our family. I wish you all the best and hope that you'll be adopting a child in addition to Juno someday soon.

I think my heart just melted.


She is beautiful.

I can't stop smiling!

I hope her tummy issue gets better -- it's been a long ride with Lucy the allergy-prone pup...

She is really changing from a "cute" puppy to a "pretty" one....she will be a regal beauty soon.

We deal with deer poop here..it stinks and not only do the dogs eat it, they like to roll their entire selves in it.

Juno is absolutely adorable... and that's a good thing to remember when you are cleaning up after her "runny bum."

The picture of Juno and her bunny is just adorable! Sorry about the runny bum. Our dog, Fidget, gets that pretty often and we've never quite figured out what makes it happen.

Duck poop, huh? Dogs do the strangest things, but they are just too darn lovable to live without.

The photo with the bunny is screen saver for sure! What an angelic face she has...
