New Family Member

We adopted a dog this weekend!  A pure breed Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.  We got him from a rescue organization in Smithfield, PA.  Apparently, they were shutting down a puppymill and when they went to get the dogs, the owner brought this doggie out by his leg.  Poor boy.

We've named him Montgomery, but call him Monty.  He's 3 years old and incredibly sweet.  He sat on my lap the entire 6 hours home (through a terrible storm!).  He is learning steps (he can go up, but not down). He hasn't had an accident in the house and while he hates the cold, he loves to run through the yard.  He's sooooo sweet and Sylvia carries him around all day.  He snores like a big, old man.

The girls had to test out his crate before we got him.

Snow Days

The girls had two days off of school.  They loved playing in the wet snow and even built a snowman and got in a lot of fun sledding.
