Look who is coming to live at Willow Garden ... Otis!!
Otis is a teeny black and cream long haired mini dachshund.  He was born last Sunday and weighed just two ounces.  In the picture below, he is the little skinny one.
Below, he is sleeping on top of his brother.  At three days old, he is up to three ounces!! 
He still has a LOT of growing to do, so send whatever positive energy you can spare, his way ... :-)

Anna's 4th Birthday Party

There are many more pics to be posted ... but this one ... sums up the day.  I love you Anna ... my little 4 year old 'Winged Fairy in Waiting'.

Christmas Tree 2011

This year, we wanted a smaller tree.  After cutting 2 feet off of the bottom ... this is our tree ... :-)

 Milo Snyder is staying with us for the weekend.  Milo and I became best buds over the summer when I was working at Galloping Goat ... 'cause that is where he lives.
It is a new experience for me to have a dog that fits on my lap ... and that doesn't smell bad ... :-)

So far, we are having a great time!
