Hi all,

My dear little grand-daughter Hanna was born on the 19th and I collected my puppy on the 17th.

As most of you know I lost contact with my daughter for a few years but have made contact again through Facebook.  It has been lovely getting to know her again via: the Internet but pretty sensitive as you can imagine.  Last week I got the nicest thing possible - a card from Emma recording the details of Hanna (weight and everything) addressed "To Mum" - I cried I can tell you - I have waited a year for that!

Jamie ... well ... Jamie has to be the most demanding puppy out.  He yelled, screamed amd yapped for three nights on the trot, screams when I leave him, is a really live wire like a tornado around the house.  He is also very cuddly and affectionate and a "people magnet".  Housetraining is slow but we are getting there (not his fault really, as he lived a flat before, and they just used to have a mop and bucket ready to clean up after him).  At the moment I feel my canine baby is as hard work as a human one.

Had to laugh, a few days ago I wondered if I wasn't very well - keep dropping off to sleep at a moments notice  :crackup: then I remembered - extra walking, ball throwing, tug of war (in my quest to get a good nights sleep).

Went to the doctors for my 6 monthly blood pressure check - lower reading 76 - at my worst a couple of years ago it was 103!!! Jamie must be doing something for me.

Please don't think I'm moaning though - he is adorable  bear_wub  and even when he is naughty with that cute little puggy face its hard to be annoyed for too long! :crackup:

Congratulations Karon on the dog baby and grandbaby.  Keep us posted on the puppy's progress, and maybe some pictures would be nice.

bear_wub Oh happy day. what a great month for you.  So glad to hear about your Granddaughter, Hanna, lovely name by the way.  I am glad that you and your daughter have come to a little understanding and are communicating.  As for Jaime, yes they are a lot of work, and you will be tired as could be, just like having another child.  I think I must be out of my mind for having 2, but they are my world and I spent some time yesteday doing my pooper scooper chore.  All around the yard I go and pick it up.  I laugh at myself and can't believe that I am doing this, I should have gotten a cat!!
But back to you, Congradulations on both new arrivals, and I wish for a bright future on both counts.  Pics please.
Hugs Pat bear_flower

It's so great to read your good news, Karon.  bear_thumb
I can imagine that the puppy must be quite a handful, but at least he's keeping you young and in shape!  bear_laugh
Fancy you becoming a grandmum and puppy-mum at almost the same time.

Maybe one day Hanna can come and play with Jamie...  :dance:

Hugs,  :hug:

Awww its lovely to hear your good news Karon.   It was so touching to read about Emma's announcement of Hanna.  I am sure little Hanna will help build some more bridges for you.  Jamie sounds like a little tinker, keeping you well occupied, but such a great companion for you.  Alls well in the Karon household and I'm thrilled for you xxx
