Opposable Thumbs....

Abigail and Annah are counting the days till their puppy comes to our home. We are getting prepared little by little. During the week we got some supplies to ready ourselves for the big arrival. I don't know that I've seen anyone more excited about getting pet supplies than they are!

We plan on crate training from the start so one of the things we got was a kennel for the dog. The girls have been having a good time taking turns trying to fit in the kennel and although they are a bit too big for it they keep trying!

While playing Abigail was the dog in the kennel and Annah locked her in. Abigail was trying to open it from inside and Annah said,

"Hey, you can't open that because you don't have opposable thumbs!!!"

HAHAHAHAHAHA! I don't think that at 9 years old the words "opposable thumbs" were even in my vocabulary.

How can anyone resist that face???? :)

good luck with the puppy training...I wouldn't trade places with you in a million years! We have had our dog for 2 1/2 years now, and she is just barely out of the puppy teething stage and she still has accidents every now and then... but nonetheless, crate training is definitely the way to go!

So very sweet! She looks like a keeper. And remember, I have heard that smaller dogs mature much faster so you will have her trained in a breeze! Find those immunization shots. She will probably need three rounds at about $6 a piece you can't beat that over the vet costs! They are easy peasy to do!!!Seriously!
