When Kip arrived here on the 30th of June, he weighed 19.5 lbs.
Today, the 12th of August, he weighed in at a whopping 34 lbs.
I guess that’s progress, but then I don’t know how much a puppy should be gaining at first. Anyway, he’s getting heavy when I have to lug him in from the garden, or up/down the narrow stairs! Mightly heavy!
I took a few pictures of The Dogs and by clicking this link, you can see them going forward from there (about 13 pictures today I think), or else click the “slideshow” link on the right and save yourself some effort.
I can’t really stay here long. I am working now, and then I am having Paul’s folks over for his birthday celebration this afternoon – for dessert only. I made a dessert that is positively to die for, and I’ve been meaning to share it with you but haven’t had the time.
I promise I will share it with you (it wasn’t my own recipe, I got it from a friend when I went to a baby shower recently) but it’s got to be one of the most sinfully yummy desserts I have ever had. More on that later.
Puppy-dom is ruling around these parts, and just getting thru each day is a feat.
They each have a new bone now and are fairly quiet, but it won’t last. I can’t believe the energy that is stored up in a puppy!
