12.1 pounds and Sleep is Over-rated

12.1 pounds...up from 11.6 on Friday...whew!! This girl is growing!!!! Had her first trip to the vet and she's 100% perfect.

Henry, Kimi and Harry

Isn't she adorable? Okay, maybe I'm not objective. We are now on Day 3 of new puppy ownership, and I think Kimi is settling in well. She's got more toys than she knows what to do with but these are her favorites which I have named "Henry the Horse" and "Harry the Hedgehog". She's quite enamored with both of them. She's sleeping better but I am not. She's whining just about 15 minutes now but no barking or howling like the first night then she falls fast asleep. She will sleep for about 3 hours then go outside....then back to sleep. Of course, she falls immediately back to sleep when she comes back in but it takes me at least 30 minutes to settle back down...and that's with Dick taking her out. Now that I will be getting up in the middle of the night, I suspect that I will get even less sleep. She's really getting accustomed to her crate and that's making it alot easier. She and I both napped this afternoon...she in her crate, me in my big soft bed. Now she's napping again and I'm doing house stuff and blogging.

Aunt Sally loving up on Kimi until she gets her own puppy.
I'm afraid that my posts will be mainly puppy based for the next few weeks. I'm going to Vegas with Sally end of January so maybe I'll have some more funny stories to share!!
