Jake and I caught this ailment this evening when we went to see Grammy and Pappy Law's new puppy, Maddie (Jake took this photo, by the way. I think we have a budding photographer on our hands). She is a 10-week-old Bernese Mountain Dog (aka a ball of fluff). What a cutie! I think Jake loved her more than I did--he has already made his reservations for his next stay at the Law's, which is only 11 days away according to his calculations.
One thing I like about big dogs is watching them grow. I'm looking forward to having the opportunity to do this again as I seriously doubt we will have any more puppies here. I guess it could happen, but I'd much rather get a dog that is past the puppy/destructive phase. But, it certainly doesn't hurt to live vicariously through others.
