National Puppy Day!

amfIt’s National Puppy Day, and we couldn’t miss the chance to celebrate.   Animal Miracle Foundation is new to us, but they’re part of the founding group for this day of awareness that honors the joy and unconditional love puppies (and dogs of all ages!) bring.   We love the AMF logo, don’t you?   Sissy is QUITE SURE that’s a basset, and since her ears aren’t the longest ever…  the colors are great too, aren’t they?

Anyway, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating a great cause, because who doesn’t love puppy breath?

We also thought you might enjoy seeing the fur-girls’ baby pictures.


(Yes, that’s her brother behind her, under the desk)

The day we met baby Sissy (and some of her littermates), December 14, 2007.   She had us BEFORE hello.  The Knight named her when he told me he’d called about the puppies and there was one lemon female available.  “Mugsy’s Little Sister” was destined to be ours.  Long-time readers might recall I bought a puppy crate just in case…

(For not-long-time-readers, her registered name is Princess of Joy, but she’s Sissy, DIVA, The Queen, Queenie, Sis-ma, etc.)

And perhaps my favorite photo of baby Sissy, with her idol – er, brother…


12-24-2007, by the Knight

Yes, her wee tail is hugging him!!


By her breeder

Of course, we have baby Gg photos too.  This is the one that sent the Knight over the moon.  Yes, both of our dogs are from breeders, not rescues.  There are sound reasons for that choice and I hope everyone can respect that.  We support rescues, and in fact, tried to adopt a rescued basset before we got Sissy, but…  those tales have been told and that’s that.

We bonded instantly with the wee one too – of course – and the rest is history.


They’ve been snuggle-buddies from the get-go.  It still warms my heart to see them wad up together!

We hope you’re enjoying puppy day and the baby pictures!

    those are great photos of the girls. I love the Christmas Eve photo of Sis and Mugsy. And that logo – my first thought was Basset! Even before reading what Sis thought.
