New Babies

It isn't just our house that have had a new baby this year - my neice and nephew have also had their first babies. Kerry and James had a beautiful baby girl - Isobel Grace in April. Gareth and Anna had a grand baby boy, William Philip in June. They are both super babies.
Have seen Isobel a few times now and each time, she looks so mature for her age - she has deep reddish hair. Here she is at 3 and 1/2 months old looking very peaceful in her car seat. Gorgeous little girl.
3 generations - Granny Gill, Mum Kerry and Isobel

Here is my sister and neice with her.

Lotte hasn't met them yet, but maybe she will one day.

I spoke to Marita last night - Lotte's first Mum and one of her 3 Godmothers - and told her just how wonderful Lotte is. Lotte is the 5th dog I have had from Marita. I also used her dog, Tommy, who was Supreme Champion at Crfuts back in 1985 to mate to my Bliss, producing my soulmate and best friend Bruno, so we have a lot of connections there. Kizzy, TJ, Charlie and Tommy also came from her. Can't think of anyone else I would go to, to get a pup. Thankyou Marita. Great drinking buddy also. Carole, Marita and I used to have great fun at dog shows - even if we didn't take a dog !!

Lotte is a very happy puppy. I told her yesterday that there shouldn't ever be a day in her life when she is anything but happy and that I will do my best to make sure that comes true. Lotte is everything - fun, pretty - delicate even, stylish, energetic, bright, clever and loving. There is nothing in this World that could buy her. Charlie is fabulous with her - thank Goodness we have Charlie still to show her the ropes. She is a great role model.

I mentioned 3 Godmothers - the other 2 are Carole, who I introduced in an earlier post who is Maddi's breeder and great friend to us all and Karen, who we also call Aunty. The dogs respond to either Karen or Aunty (haha - we call her Aunty also !). Karen is wonderful with our dogs (and with us) - they love her to bits. Luckily she lives close by so we see more of her. Great drinking pal also.

I am blessed with good friends as there are quite a few more I haven't mentioned yet, but all of whom are wonderful in their own right. I am a very lucky person indeed.
