New addition to our family!

So my family began after my husband proposed. I moved into my own apartment with no roommates after we got engaged and realized that living alone was not going to be easy. So while he had asked about getting a dog it wasn't until he went out of town that I went looking. We got a minature schnauzer, named her Georgia since Bush was running for president at the time. Anyway, she was born with a hole in her heart and three years ago she just couldn't live a full life anymore. Luckily about a year or more before her time, we had added a second schnauzer. Jasper is his name, he came into my heart at a time that I did not know if I would ever heal from a miscarriage, even though we just barely expecting again. Jasper was the fury love that helped me heal. Georgia trained him and some how passed on her great attributes to him. And yet he has a unique soul and he loves to talk to us. So we have been talking about adding another dog for Jasper to have someone to play with. However since my other minature schnauzers never stayed true and averaged a weight of 27 lbs. I wanted something smaller and more of a lap dog. Hubby didn't like what I was wanting. But Saturday, the right information found me and I went to check it out. Then got the family to go with me and take a look at two litters of true akc minature schnauzers. I was happy to get another salt and pepper, but my husband wanted to do something a little more unique. So we came home with the runt of the champagne schnauzer's litter. So this is Einstein, 7 wks old, weighing in at 2.3 lbs, and he will be eventually be white.

So this is Einstein!

This is our youngest of three. Lauren is four and calls him, her "little Einstein"

As you can tell, he is adapting and we have survived two nights with being woken up every two hours to potty. Yes much like a baby all over again.
Although, my hubby has promoted to Captain with the Police department, he has been moved to the midnight shift, so it looks like I will be taking on puppy shifts at night here. Last night he came home at about 4 am for his lunch break which was great timing. Einstein wanted to play and not sleep. So I handed him over and went back to sleep. Jasper is loving the pup, just wishes he was bigger now so they could really play together.

So the next post will be a project that I am working on. I am making chore card for my boys who are 10 and 8. A few chores that are required and others that can be done to earn extra allowances, but with a limit so not to drain my wallet. I will finish that project up and post it.

Take care, stay cool, and have fun crafting!
