Sadie says, "See, this is how you pose perfectly for the camera." Now 13 weeks old, Sadie is full of spice. What a character! She chases the other dogs all over the yard, plays tug, comes when I call her, and cuddles on command. Oh, and she's found her voice. She's not shy about letting us know when she wants something.
Are these puppies cute or what!? And, they posed perfectly for the camera. At five weeks old, Maggie and Lacey, are just starting to come out of their shells. They play and growl and bark, little tiny barks, and rassle with the big dogs. They are just too cute.
So... What's a gal do with some of the money she made from selling a few puppies? Yep, that's right. She purchases a carpet shampooer! Needless to say, after puppy-rearing, my carpets are shot! My guy has been looking at these machines for a couple of years. I prefer to call the local professionals to come in and do the job for me. He tells me, "...we should buy on of these, think of the money we'd save..." My response has always been, "...but then I'd have to do all the work..." Sure enough.
I planned to have company this weekend, so I called the local professionals to come out Saturday morning before my company would arrive. But, coming to my senses, I just couldn't spend another $120 to have the carpets cleaned by someone else when we have this brand new machine. I canceled my appointment and got out the monster. My son showed me all the ins and outs of using this machine. After SIX HOURS, my carpets were spotless! I am SO sore! Six hours! ARGH! But, I have to admit, this machine did an excellent job on my carpets! By the time I finished, my daughter was due to arrive within the hour...
