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 and even when he is naughty with that cute little puggy face its hard to be annoyed for too long! :crackup:
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.
It's so great to read your good news, Karon.
I can imagine that the puppy must be quite a handful, but at least he's keeping you young and in shape!
Fancy you becoming a grandmum and puppy-mum at almost the same time.
Maybe one day Hanna can come and play with Jamie... :dance:

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
