New Additions to the Family

We have been busy here as we put things in order for my brother in law's puppies to come live with us.  Things have to be worked out still.  We will need the yard to be completely fenced-they like to run away- and we will be purchasing a large shed-10 ft x 16 ft to be their home.  Unfortunately, we have to wait until some things are worked out so we can do the necessary work to make this their home.  We have a little beagle who is fearful of all other dogs.  Our home is also small and we don't think we would have room to have them here with us.  They will be right outside our door in their own very stylish little home.  For now they are living where they were and my sister in law is caring for them.
Meet Petie-he has my brother in law's name and his demeanor.  He is fun-loving and a bit rambunctious.  He is the brawn behind the escape plans.  He is also huge!!  He stands as tall as my husband.  His paws are almost the size of my hand.

Meet Skylar-She is a true lady.  She has a gorgeous coat and beautiful blue eyes.  She will melt your heart.  She is Petie's mom and the mastermind behind all escape plans.  She has a sweet temperament.  

This is our baby beagle.  She is about the same age as Skylar.  She does not enjoy other dog's company.  She is a people dog.  Loves all the attention she can get.

Here is the little home we are having built for the huskies.  It is so cute.  We hope they will be happy here with us.  The kids are just waiting to have them here and love on them.  They were my brother in law's babies and will help us feel a part of him with us here.

Sorry for the poor quality.  It's a picture from the pamphlet.  

Once the huskies are all moved in and settled I will be able to update on their progress.  I am sure we will have some fun and interesting stories to share. 

**  I have been having trouble with blogger and was wondering if anyone else has.  I can't post comments on certain blogs.  If you have your post and then comments with a comment box below I only get a blank space and cannot leave a comment.  Has this happened to anyone else?  I don't know if it's my computer or blogger trouble.  I would appreciate anyone's help.  Thank you**

Petie & Skylar are gorgeous. I can't wait to meet them. I'm glad to see you posting--you've been on my mind so much, but I've been a horrible friend & haven't called. It's been a crazy week.
Let's get together next week--Maddie & I bought circular knitting needles! :)

Ruth~ they are GORGEOUS dogs! I know you're not a dog person, yet you seem excited to have these new family members. It'll be nice to have something to make you feel connected to your BIL.
I LOVE huskies. When Brian and I first got married, we got a Husky/Alaskan Malamute mix. We had to get rid of him when I was pregnant with Ashley because he was too big and hairy for in the house (with a baby). It broke my heart.
I'll be anxious to hear how things go. The shed is very nice. I'm sure they'll love it.
