Preparing for Boston's Arrival
Today I stocked up on all the things you need for a new puppy: kibbles, collar, harness, and lots of TOYS. I was so happy when the pillow I ordered on etsy arrived. It's upcycled from a t-shirt and I bought it at My T-Shirt Pillow .
So I set up Boston's little spot next to our bed and told Kiki, "These are for Boston." I left the room and when I came back, Kiki was on the bed with a guilty look on her face and the smallest of the toys.
Of course I played with her! I realized that there was no way of keeping the toys from her, and that actually, since she will be the 'boss' of the two dogs, all the toys will probably be 'hers' anyways.
I am so curious how it will be once Boston is here. I wonder how it will be for Kiki; if she will be upset, happy, or indifferent. Change always makes me nervous. But mostly, I am excited, and hopeful that this new member of the family will just bring more love and joy.
When we were done playing, I caught this lovely shot of a contemplative Kiki.
I love her so much, my heart just bursts sometimes. I am so blessed to have her in my life. We are together 24 hours a day, so close, and so connected. I hope this bond remains strong when Boston is here.
