A Birthday and a Puppy

The day before Thanksgiving our oldest girlie turned 7. It was special to celebrate with family in Nevada. She requested we put a Turkey on her cake so I spent the morning rolling out Tootsie Rolls for the body and Starburst's for the feathers, beak, and waddle to place on top. 

It was mostly simple. We played games, opened presents and had cake. She pretty much got the most amazing custom art box ever!

Easy and I had been thinking about the final little pup from the last litter at Grandma's and were toying with the idea of taking him home with us. I was mostly for it. He was mostly against it.  And in a temporary moment of insanity we decided to go for it. He was just such a sweet little pup and I felt like at some point we would get a dog so....why not now? I called Grandma while Easy and Ava headed to the store for a collar, leash, bowl, and food before picking up our new guy.

Since his dad's name is Compadre we knew we wanted to name him something with a Spanish vibe (not to mock ;). After calling him Don Carlos, Cortes, and Dante we finally decided to stick with Cortes.

After puking in the car twice and pooing once (thankfully in the kennel) we got him home. He mostly spends the day running with the girls out back, laying under the kitchen table, eating, pooing, and eating.

The ladies of the family mostly love him all except Rosie who is scared to death of him. Easy is both tolerant and supportive.

Happy birthday to sweet Blondes! 7!!!

I love your sweet dog! Cortes is the prefect name, isn't there a city in CO called that? I know your girls will love having a dog to grow up with. Now I just hope mine don't get any ideas... :)

Cortes is so cute, I can't wait to meet him in person. I'm not even a dog person but after seeing these pics now we want one too!

Ah, I didn't know you had a dog before! Want to meet the newest Gardiner addition. Poor Rosie, Eli chases animals around and trys to grab their tail.
