Harry Potter, Dorothy and the roosterdog that didn't happen!

Happy Halloween from 1 miss Dorothy...

and 1 Harry Potter...

and Jackson was going to be a rooster but really preferred to just chew on the costume and really hasn't figured out how to be a good walker on the leash so he went one block and retired for the night.

Meet Jackson.... the crazy puppy!

So within a few days of loosing Cooper we were fortunate enough to find a new breeder who had a perfect dog. Same golden doodle breed just a new color, twice as big as Cooper was (even though he was born a month later) and has much more of those new puppy tendencies that I had heard of! (ie. chewing on everything, jumpy - very very jumpy, fun things like that)

Not a good day!

There will be an update (very long) post coming oh so soon, but today was a horrible day! After welcoming Cooper (see the cute little puppy below) into our house only 12 days ago we had to say goodbye to him today. The poor little puppy that had totally worked his way into our hearts in these few short days was very very sick with several different things but mostly a congenital (genetic) disorder causing his body to not use protein. He fought so hard for the last 24 hours to try and get better, but it just wasn't in the cards. This afternoon the kids and I went over to the vet to say goodbye and let him go and keep uncle Michael company for a while. The kids are devastated and want to know why "everyone we love keeps dying" to which I don't have any answer other than life can be hard.
