puppy love


Need a little adorableness to brighten up your Thursday?


Meet Izzy.

Or Isobel, as she's known in more formal circles.


She is sweet and fun, and highly entertaining.

Izzy has given me a new respect for pet photographers, as puppies would much rather play with your camera than pose for it.

We've already spent one day working in the garden and she's on a hike with my hubby today, so she's wasting no time getting used to her new life as a country dog.


In other news, while we had snow on the ground this morning, the tulips are pushing through the cold ground and the trees are showing the first signs of life. Gardening season is right around the corner and I can't wait.

Happy First Day of Spring, everyone!

  29. Izzy is adorable, but seeing her made me sad. We are on a road trip without our puppy- she gets car sick. We will see her tomorrow.

    HAPPY EASTER.

  31. What a cutie! She's beautiful! Congratulations!!

  32. She is beyond adorable, I'm afraid I would spoil her rotten! Hope you're doing well and it's warm there. Our peonies have bloomed and laid their heads down, done. Trying marigolds for the first time, they're very happy looking. We've had the worst pollen this year ever, they say it's because of the severe cold we had which immediately gave way to huge heat and it caused every single plant and tree of any type to immediately put out its pollen (boy that sounds scienctific - j/k). I've started quilting again and am challenged by English paper piecing.

    Hugs ~ Mary
