We have 2 adorable puppies in our home.  They are Ziva, who is Son#1’s ward, and Bear, who is Son#2’s charge.  They’re sister and brother littermates, Labrador mixes.  Ziva joined our family 2 weeks ago.  Bear moved in this past weekend.

I’m chuckling as I watch our newest family member, Ziva, a 7 week old Lab-mystery-mix puppy, bound around our backyard.  Our older dog, Douglas, a 12 year old Lab-Saluki mix, has finally comes to grips with the fact that this ball of furry energy is staying.  It’s hard dealing with a brand new baby sister out of the blue.
