She's Here !!!

It Sleeps !!!

This is Jodie Isabella.

I got her on January 1st.
She barked most of the first night.
Meaning that I got no real sleep.

I slept a bit better last night.
I believe I am too old for this.
Oh well, too late.
She really likes Maddy Jean.
Maddy sort of likes her.

I have her almost trained to go outside.
She cries for me when she needs to
go venture in the back yard.
Only it's three times in the middle of the night.

I'm having my first cup of coffee.
Listening to the garbage trucks.

Wondering if I will ever feel rested again.

(Jodie Isabella is a Rough Collie.
We made up her first name.
Jo is from a cat I had twenty years ago.
Die is from the name of my first Golden Retriever.
And, Isabella is after my Sweet Sabrina Isabella.
I think we will end up calling her
Jodie Belle.)

Oh, she's gorgeous, what a precious bundle of fur.

Yeah, I'm not sure I'd want a "baby" in the house at my age, either, but the plus is matures a lot faster than human babies. LOL.

Good luck...here's to sleep!

Oh she's so sweet!

Deb said...

She is gorgeous. Our dog, Kane would love her. He knows a Collie when he sees one.

Brian said...

I'm so glad we will be able to be a part of this via your blog. Well, except for the getting up in the night part, lol. She is beautiful and Maddy will be a big help in getting her used to the routines. Congratulations!

Welcome, Jodie Isabella. What a cute bundle of sleeplessness. :)

Oh, I like the way she looks up to Maddy Jean. There is adoration in those eyes. MJ will mellow when their play time (and ability/size) evens out. What fun. Except for the 3 AM thing.

Adorable! Don't worry, she'll grow fast and then you'll be wondering where the puppy time went!

Darlene said...

She is too cute for words, I am so happy for you all. I love the way you came up with her name, I have done this also combining names of my most cherished pets.

Judy said...

She is a pretty little girl! And of course you will get to sleep through the night, in a while. I bet you said that every time you had a baby, of whatever species...

Lucy the Cat said...

She's so beautiful! Hang in there! She's worth it!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
