Our Newest Additions

I’ve been neglecting my blogs for a while now, and it’s about to change. Well, everything is about to change. We got a puppy! We are also expecting a little girl, due in June!

So, first things first – meet Jaxx:

The day we picked out our new puppy Jaxx (3 weeks old)...still too young to bring home!

The day we picked out our new puppy Jaxx   (3 weeks old)…just opened his eyes and still too young to bring home!

Jaxx is a full-blood Pit Bull Terrier. He is a dark red brindle color. We decided to keep his ears long and named him after Jax from Mortal Kombat. Apparently, we’re nerdy like that. We didn’t name him for the first few days, but over half of the names on our list were from some kind of cartoon or video game… Bowser (NES Mario) and Hugo (Naruto Shippuden) to name a couple of our other ideas.

Our Pit Bull Terrier at 11 weeks – Jaxx

I did a lot of research before really deciding I wanted a Pit. I just didn’t know anything about them…but my husband had grown up around them most of his life. The more I read about them, the more I realized it was the dog for me! Knick’s parents just had a third (and final) litter, so it was now or never to get one. We call him our velcro dog – he LOVES human contact.

He is so smart…learned to sit on command at 10 weeks, to walk on a leash and lay down on command at 11 weeks, to stay and lay on his side at 12 weeks. I’m home all day, so I usually spend a few hours a day playing with him and training him. He has a very high energy level..but he is usually eager to please and quick to pick new things up. I am constantly logging onto http://www.pitbull-chat.com checking out new answers for questions I have.

And, meet the newest member – Kniya Annah:

Kniya Annah - 19 weeks!

Kniya Annah – 19 weeks!

We found out last week that it’s going to be a GIRL. She’s already a mover – and I’m sure she’ll become the perfect companion for Jaxx, but making mamma feel a little sick with all her kicks! No complaints here, though, this pregnancy has been hassle-free for the most part, and the random popping in my stomach just confirms what the ultrasounds and doppler readings already told us – she’s alive and kicking. Hard.

Little Whiskers

My cousins kittens are now about 3 weeks old.

I stopped by to pick the girls up the same day the cat was giving birth. These were the first kittens I’ve seen born. They just opened their eyes this week and can’t stand at much more than a wobbley crawl.

Another Day, Another Dollar

Another morning of drawing. Mornings when I don’t have art lessons to teach, I work on my little pieces. I enjoy a cup of coffee and a few inspirational ideas to get started. I just started on Pinterest (search for me!).

Shipping out a few ACEO cards today. I especially love to see repeat customers! I have several consistent bidders, and it always makes me happy to know my artwork continues to go to people who love it.

meet the crew…

Oswald, Walter, and Regina:

Oswald is a brainiac, and entirely too confident in his abilities of reasoning. He is the leader of the group (at least he thinks he is!) and he often gets in trouble with his hard head.
Walter is happy-go-lucky. If something can go wrong for him, it does, but he always finds the silver lining and never seems to mind for more than a second or two. Crying over spilled milk is certainly not his thing.
Regina is a clutz. She is happy and tries to impress, but usually does it while flat on her face. She is the voice of reason in the group – just keep her out of the china shop.
