Trouble Briggy

Brig is such an active and adventurous boy! He is getting to where he thinks he is big already. A few weeks ago he burned his arm on our friends wood stove.

I had all of the chairs pushed in so that he couldn't get on the table but that was the reason the chair tipped over. This is definitely not my favorite age.

She spends all day at my side - never any farther than five feet away. Wherever I am, she wants to be. It is nice to have a new companion that loves to be around. I keep a toy handy that I can throw for her to chase and play with.

When we got her, she had a bad sinus infection. Her breathing was a harsh snort and I felt worried about her for the first couple of days, but she has always had plenty of energy and now appears to be starting to feel better. I have kept her on some medication to help clear it up. She still snorts but it doesn't sound as h…
