Our Newest Edition

Well we would like to introduce the world to our new little girl. We're very excited to have her join our family. Haven is overwhelmed with excitement.

She is only 3 weeks old right now but Haven was specially invited to come and see her new puppy early. Haven asks us every day what she would be doing, where she would be sitting, what she will want to play...everything. Now she knows what she will look like!
There are 2 girls. The picture above and this one. Haven didn't pick which one she wanted yet - we're going to do that in about 3 weeks when they are a little bigger and have a little more personality. Right now they are barely able to hold their heads up or walk.

Here are all of the gorgeous puppies. You just look at them and want to love them all. There are the 2 girls and 3 boys. I love the stretched out legs.

This is Haven giving the mom, Bonnie, a treat. What type of dog did we get? A Miniature Schnauzer. For years I have wanted a black/silver and they are hard to find. We were going to get one for Haven at the beginning of last year in hopes of helping her with depression and all her medical issues but hospital plans changed that. Now that we have gone through some major hospital stays we felt Haven deserved to have a real life puppy to love.

This is the mom, Bonnie. She is absolutely the sweetest dog I have ever seen. She is so gentle and loving.

Above is a video of the babies eating. I have never seen this before so I was happy Haven was able to see it.

So what is her new puppy's name? Well.....ever seen the movie "The Secret of Nimh"?

Nickademus Anabelle --- or Nikkideez for short --- will be joining us on Thanksgiving weekend!

Thank you Karen for letting Haven come to see her new puppy early. She has been non-stop talking about her. Even practicing holding her on her stuffed animals.


  1. Such cute babies! I'm so happy that Haven is getting a puppy. My dog was by far my favorite "toy" when I was a little girl. Haven deserves to have something good to look forward to.

  2. Hi, Miss Haven!

    How adorable you and the puppies are! I know you and your puppy will have lots of fun times together.

    Bye for now,


  3. CONGRATULATIONS on your new puppy! So fun to see them when they're so little. I used to have a friend who had a mini Schnauzer who LOVED green beans from the can. He would go NUTS for them, and do anything for them (and they were good for him too!) You should try that with your puppy when he's old enough!

    Have fun!

  4. Oh my gosh, it's so adorble :)
    Miss you guys.......
