Puppy Love

Here's one of my favorite photos of Mia and Abby. Abby was less than a year old, and we hadn't had her ears cropped yet. She looks so little here!

Fast forward!

Abby will be three this month, it is unbelievable how time has flown right by us! Here's a more recent photo, she's grown quite a bit.

She is a super sweet girl when she wants to be, but in a blink of an eye her mood can change.  She was named after Pauley Perette's character "Abby" on NCIS. We *love* that show!!

Isn't she beautiful!

The Name Has Changed

But the puppy is the same. 

Mia and Ziva, the names, just don't work together. 

Mia thinks we are saying her name, and Ziva just wasn't learning her name.  We thought the M and Z would set the names apart, but we were wrong.  Oh so wrong.  I think the only sound they heard was the a at the end of their names.  So, we decided to change her name.  

We are going to call her Abby.

We wanted to stay with the NCIS theme.  We think she will catch on to her new name much better.  No worries, we won't be changing her name again. 

But we will be getting her a studded dog collar, kind of like Abby on NCIS. 

Oh, and for the record, we will be getting her ears cropped.  I am not really sure how people say that cropping their ears is cruel.  It isn't like they are awake when it happens.  If you think about it, it is kind of like when parents take their little daughters to get their ears pierced.  Except they don't knock them out to do it. 

That is just my take on it. 

Hopefully I will get some new pics up soon.

Right now I am focusing on my garden.  Photos coming soon!  I am so excited!!

Introducing…

She is finally here. 

I would like to introduce you Ziva, our new Doberman Pinscher.

Ziva, everyone.  Everyone, Ziva. 

She is quite a mess.  She whined so much when we got her we almost decided to name her after a wine.  When I mentioned that to her she quit whining and went to sleep.  We went through a list of names, added names to the list, and then finally settled on Ziva.  We love the show NCIS, and the character Ziva is one lethal lady.  We want our lady Ziva to look lethal.  She is supposed to be a guard dog, and she will be trained to do just that.  So we felt like the name fit.  When she gets her ears cropped she will look even more Ziva like. 

Right now, as I type this she is playing with a sleeping Mia.   Mia wasn't quite sure about Ziva last night, but they have played almost all day.  They play a little, then they sleep a little.  They are so cute together.  I will post more photos of them together another time. 

Oh little Ziva is a chewer.  She chews everything and she pees everywhere.  I didn't sleep much last night because I was too worried about Ziva and Mia getting along.

Now I am going to print out all of your questions for McD and I, and get those babies answered while we sit here and watch the snow blow.
