Boston Is Finally Home

Boston is here! 

It's been an emotional and exciting 2 and a 1/2 days so far. Boston is very needy and cries if he doesn't see me, and must be held and carried alot. Kiki was very reserved and even growled at him when he tried approaching her the first day, but slowly she is warming to him. Today she actually wagged her tail at him and sniffed his eyes. I can feel that this is going to be a loving, harmonious, fun family....it just needs a little time to get there.

Joyful experiences have been how quickly Boston learned his name; waking up to his adorable face looking at me in the morning; watching him run clumsily through the clover; and feeling how he needs me, and being able to fulfill that need. He can be very playful at times, and loves to chase a ball or chew on his stuffed duck.

Here are some images of Boston's first days with us. 

I am holding his soft tiny body as I type...he likes being held with his stomach against my breast and his head looking back over my shoulder. This is how he feels safest.

I will write more soon, and post more pics!

Wishing you all a lovely day,

xoxo country girl 

P.S. The sweet and talented Johanna of Birds On A Wire made an amazing little illustration of me and Kiki! See it by clicking HERE. Thank you, Johanna!

  7. He's sweet and adorable! If you ever have trouble with him sleeping during the night, slip a wind up alarm clock in bed with him, they say the ticking reminds them of their time in the womb and comforts them. Such a blessing!

    Can't wait to see you all again!

  19. oh..and the photo of him in front and you in the background is out of this world super cool!

  20. oh dawn! your new little sweetie is too cute for words! i love puppies....i love there skunky breath & soft tummies and holding them when they sleep...i could do it for hours {and have!}

  21. he is just the cutest. my son saw the pics and said he wants that dog. he would even trade our dog mellow :)

  22. How wonderful to have a new addition to the family! He will be loved by all of you including Kiki:)
    It is also great that he was vaccinated whilst he was still with the breeder so you are able to take him out immediately. Poppy is very small and our breeder doesn't like to vaccinate when they are so tiny, so we had to wait for three weeks for the vaccines to be effective before we could take her walking.

  23. Ahh love all the new pics and esp darling pooches, Boston snuggled among the adorable bedding. He could be a Ralph Lauren model. I don't envy you the packing but I'd kill to go order a kitchen, but maybe that's because i'm double 30 plus 1.
