Ripley!

If you read my photography blog or are friends with me on Facebook you've already seen her but I can't stop posting this cute photo. I love this little girl so much! She was my Christmas present from Sir Luke this year and we just got her last night. I'm not going to lie, her breeder freaked me out a little but I'm so glad we got her. She's the cuddliest, sweetest little thing.


I gave her a bath as soon as we got home, since she wasn't traumatized enough as it was... And I couldn't believe the dirt that came off of her! Sick. She was totally freaked out but loves me to bits which makes my heart melt. She follows me all over the place and enjoys sitting in my lap

We both love her. It took us forever to come up with a name. I refused to call her "eyebrows" like Sir Luke wanted. Not for reals, anyway. Some names that were nixed:

Eyebrows
Caramello
Bear
Cappuccino
Snapshot
Ceja (eyebrow in Spanish)
Gem
Dixie
Stinky
Twix
Rollo
Carlos the Destroyer (Ten points if you know the reference. Hint: it's not The Hangover)
Jolene
Boba
Cyan
Fudge

For the record, Sir Luke is the one wanting to name her after candy and food items. I'm glad we finally decided because I got her cute little name tag printed up and I can't wait to see it hanging from her tiny little neck.

On Christmas morning I showed Jared a short video clip montage of people getting puppies on Christmas morning. He wanted to know if that was a last ditch effort on my part to get a puppy. And it was a little bit. But it was also just cute.

Your dog is adorable. Her coloring is great!

Isn't Carlos the Destroyer from Freaks and Geeks? I know Daniel's D&D character was Carlos the Something.

(I'm still waiting to hear what Luke got you for your anniversary.)
