Coco

Our newest addition!

We now have a little puppy in the house — her name is Coco!

She is part Chihuahua, part something else (we’re not sure), but we do know she’s 100% adorable!

She is so tiny, and we’re hoping she gets no larger than her mother, who is about the size of a small daschund — so maybe she’ll stay nice and tiny!

And she is definitely a little lap-puppy!  You will most often find her like this —

There is a riddle here somewhere!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Such as, “How many country critters does it take to check the mail?”

The obvious answer is — ALL of them!

My daughter told me yesterday that they had 2 cats and all the chickens following
them down to the mailbox. So, today, I just had to document their journey!

I never thought chickens would follow you around the yard, but when they see someone
in a skirt (they equate this with feeding time), they all come running!

Even the kitties join in!

“Okay, everyone line up — peoples by two’s, critters by three’s!”

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I don’t know what Daniel was doing with his face here in this picture —
but, needless to say with the help of his critters (and his sister),
he was able to find the mail!

AND, we want to say “Happy 4th Birthday to Daniel”!
