Nature shots

As I've already stated, we have a new puppy.  Taking Ginseng for walks is a great excuse for me to get out and use the walking trails in my area.  I have been snapping a bunch of shots of the weeds and plants around the trails, here are a few of what I consider the best ones.

Quite possibly the best dog in the world!

We have a new puppy.  I really wasn't wanting a dog, my kids have never shown themselves to be great pet owners and I just didn't want to deal with it.  Chris and the kids decided that they really wanted one anyway and my wonderful SIL happens to breed Toy Aussies and was willing to gift us one.  So we are now the proud owners of a 2.8 lb Toy Aussie we named Ginseng.

Ginseng is already essentially housebroken at 9 weeks old.  He is crate trained and sleeps through the night without crying and wimpering.  We walk him and he stays right with us and responds to commands.  I may not have wanted him, but I must admit that I am absolutely in love with this baby!  He is beyond gorgeous with his one blue eye and one brown eye, he is so soft and cuddly and he has almost convinced me that he should be able to sleep in my bed.  I barely let Chris sleep in my bed, much less the puppy!

Our whole family is smitten!  Look at that face, how could you resist.
