For quite some time,
we have been looking forward
to a visit from
Rory and Fiona.

They rode, with their peeps,
down I-81
through numerous traffic problems
to come see us and
spend the night
at our house.

Their Mom says
Fiona is the brains
of the couple,
but Rory has the
dashing good looks.

Our Mom is absolutely smitten with him.
He speaks with a Scottish brogue
and that drives the ladies crazy.
He and Piper even became great buds.

And he was ever so nice
to the Sweet Babes.
Fiona, on the other hand,
just took a look and was off
about other business.

And now for our surprise.

Since we lost our
sweet JavaMan
over a year ago,
we have been trying
to find another
Chocolate Lab
to be our
It hasn't been working out for us.
We knew that we had to
get a puppy
so that it would grow up knowing
the real bosses of
Rocky Creek Farm.

Last week,
one of our Dad's student's presented him
with an end of year gift -
a puppy.

She has been in quarantine
for 10 days so we get to meet
her today, just like you.

So please meet

Miss Iverness
"Ivy" for short.
Yes, Bertie, we did leave a letter out-
on purpose -
we wanted a Scottish sounding name for her
but we didn't want her nickname to be "Iny".
Her breed is the most popular -
Heinz 57;
it appears she will top out
at about 100 pounds.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh, Ruairi, Ivy,
The Sweet Babes

Welcome home new puppy

May I be worthy God of new beginnings, of this wee one troting in my wake. I'm already in love with this wiggly ball of fur with milky puppy breath, needle teeth as sharp as exclamation points, growels that sound like bees buzzing and bright buton eyes that've taken my measure in a heartbeat and know me for the infatuated fool I am. Bless us as we explore the world you've set before us. Down on my knees in the wake of a puppy, O God is a wonderful place to meet you.

Holly said...

We had such a wonderful time! Thanks for having us and we can't wait to visit again!!!

After Scotties Heinz 57 is my favorite "breed." I'm sure Ivy will be a great addition to the family!

Sue said...

Oh, what a wonderful surprise! Nothing can bring as much laughter and happiness as a puppy. We're so glad to meet Ivy.

We recognise the bandanas. Maybe we should have a showing of the bandanas Day!

We thought there was nothing so cute as scottie puppies. We were WRONG. Love little Ivy. Ruairi will certainly have fun with her.
