Welcome Lilly!

It has been too long since I've posted on this blog!!!!

I'm sure most of you are thinking, where is she? She doesn't even have a job - the least she can do is keep us up to date!!!

I know, I've been horrible at this.  But three weeks ago we received a special little package.

And has she ever GROWN!!!!  I just took Lilly to the vet today and she is now 14.5 lbs!!!  That is almost 6 lbs more than she was last month.  For those of you who live in the world of KG she's about 5-6 kg now and if you live in the world of Stone then you're on your own 'cause I've never understood that way of measuring :)

Lilly is a Labradoodle first generation.  This means that her Mom was a Labrador and her Dad was a standard Poodle.  Some people know this breed as being hypo-allergenic (non-shedding) but because she is a first generation breed her future shedding, personality and weight is a bit unknown.  We love her so much even though she regularly makes me want to tear my hair out!!!

Because of her Labrador heritage, she is very eager to put everything and anything in her mouth.  So far this has included rain water, plants, sticks, plastic, glass, rocks and even the decapitated head of a bird.  It has been a joy fishing these items out of her mouth.

We have wanted to adopt a dog ever since we got together.  Moving to Singapore halted this process but now that we are in a more agreeable climate we have decided to take the plunge.  It has been a surprisingly busy few weeks getting her potty trained and used to our routine but overall she has been a great addition to our lives.

Welcome to Houston!  Looking forward to all of your visits! Get ready for lots of playtime and chasing!
