China: Salute!

My Papa taught me how to salute because he is in the Army. See how well I do it? I know all kinds of tricks. Way more than Madie does although she is learning.

Madie's first day Home!

These are some puppy photos of Madie's first day in her new home, and her and China meeting for the first time. Madie is 5 months in these photo's. We had gone to visit my family in Iowa for Thanks- giving and they were tired of having a puppy and wanted to give her to us if we loved her. Of course we adored Madie and gladly took her home with us. We were worried about China accepting her since she was an only dog for about 6 years. We prayed that China would accept her and it helped that Madie was still a puppy so China was not threatened and accepted her and started to play with her the very first day! Doesn't China look happy to have a puppy to play with? She used to have doggie friends, but since we moved she didn't have any doggie friends to play with. Now she has Madie to wrestle and chase, and she seems happier.

Favorite Spot

This is our favorite spot in the house to take naps or just chill! Madie gets on the chaise with the soft fuzzy blanket, and mine (China) is right next to it on the floor. Mom usually sits where Madie is, but if Mom isn't there Madie takes the spot. If Mom is there then Madie climbs up too and snuggles. My other favorite spot is anywhere I'm near Mom, the closer the better, but Madie just goes to the Chaise all the time no matter where Mom is.

What's YOUR favorite spot?

Auntie Echo

This is my Auntie Echo! She loves me a lot! She will play tug with me and give me bits of food and everything! I love my Auntie Echo! I wish that she wouldn't pick me up and snuggle me though, but she's so much fun that I still love her anyway.

Cousins Emma & Eddie

This is a photo of two of our cousins Emma and Eddie. They are Jack Russel's. Grandpa Brian just sent Mom this photo of them. Grandpa Brian also has three more dogs, we will show you them later though. Emma and Eddie look like a lot of fun...we wish we could play with them, but they live in Washington State. Mom says that's across the country, we figure that means a loooooong car ride. We love car rides, but loooooong ones get boring. Oh and Emma is the one above and Eddie is below. Emma is Eddie's Birth Mom, he's still a puppy and same with his brother Edgar.

It's ME! Madie!

Hey!!! This is one of my puppy photos! Aren't I just adorable and you want to give me treats? Or tug with me? Hummm?! Is my puppy mind control working???
And NO my eyes are NOT blue it's just the light from the flash reflecting. I really have dark brown eyes.
When Mom took this photo I was chewing on my bone, but Mom kept making me look at her and interrupting me! You can even see the bone in my mouth. It was delicious! I love bones.

China & Madie Up and Blogging

Okay so me 'n' Madie wanted our own blog so Mom started one for us. We are going to tell you about our life. We'll share all the pictures Mom takes of us and tell stories of our adventures! Maybe even show you our tricks! We love to get treats, and any bits of food you may want to toss our way. I love to be petted, but Madie would rather play tug or chase after toys that are thrown. We like to play with each other too. I refuse to play tug with her, but I'll occasionally play a short game of keep away with one of her toys. I prefer to wrestle, and chase...much more fun in my opinion.
