I don't have anything book-related to blog about, so I'm going to take eva's advice and post pictures of my puppy.

This is puppy graduation. After 8 weeks of classes, Rusty is proficient in Sit, Stay, Leave It, Wait, Lay Down, and loose-leash walking (but the loose-leash walking is still kind of iffy).

I don't like to be that mom who brags about how her kid is smarter than all the other kids, but my puppy is pretty darn smart. He picked everything up really quickly. And it only took 4 tries to get this picture!

See, doesn't he look scholarly?

It wouldn't be graduation night without a kegger, would it? My naughty husband wanted to make sure Rusty didn't miss out on that all important graduation experience.

Don't forget to enter my fantabulous giveaway for my copy of Firefly Lane. I've got lots of entries, WILL YOU BE THE ONE???

Congrats to the puppy! Rusty is so cute! I want another puppy. Buddy just turned 3 and I miss his puppy days. I'm liking the titles of these blog posts...I may have to steal that to make me feel more enthusiastic about the week ;)

Melody said...

Kim, Rusty looked so cute with the graduation cap! And aren't you a proud mom? ;) BTW, is that you on the 1st pic? You're one pretty lady. :D

Bellezza said...

Is there anything cuter than a puppy? I think not! Even one drinking beer. :)

Eva said...

Yay!! Those pictures are both awesome, hehe. Rusty's so adorable. :) And you and your husband match! (I love it when couples match, hehe)

danetteb said...

Awe,cute. Congrats Rusty!

Alice Teh said...

Oh look at that pooch! CONGRATS!! A handsome couple, both of you. And yes, Rusty is very very cute.

I'm still trying to get hubby to agree to having a pet and I'm giving more time till 2009. Hahaha.

Nymeth said...

Aww, such adorable pictures :D He's so cute!

Kim L said...

chris-feel free to steal the titles, they're making me more enthusiastic just writing them. What kind of dog is Buddy?

melody-thank you! That is me in the photo with Rusty.

bellezza-just so no one thinks I'm a negligent pet parent, he's licking at a rootbeer bottle, and its empty, so really he just smelled the sugary pop and kept licking at it! :-)

eva-thanks. I've never thought about it before, but I suppose you could make the case that we match :-)


alice-I can give you tips on how I convinced my husband. It was a lot of work! First of all, I didn't stop talking about it for months. Pretty much a year. Then I took him to meet the litter before Rusty's and he agreed right away!


Melody said...

Ah... I just knew it! ;)

Andy said...

Root beer - I'm not making my puppy drunk :P

Debi said...

Congrats Rusty! Isn't he the cutest?!! And you should brag, Mom! Our dog passed doggie school, but I swear it was only because the teacher was our next-door neighbor and she had a soft spot for the dufus. (He definitely is not the brightest canine on the block, but we love him anyway.)

Eva said...

It was mainly your matching smiles that I noticed. :)

I can't wait to see the pics of when your kids graduate pre-school. ;)
