Introducing Lola

I know that you've been wondering where I've been hiding. I'm potty training a 3 year old boy and housebreaking a puppy. So the answer is the laundry room.

Yes, you heard that right. We have a puppy.

Introducing Miss Dolores von M. But you can just call her Lola.


Yes, her name is Lola. She was a show dog*.

As you can imagine, whatever Lola wants, Lola gets.

I kid. She's actually quite sweet. Like champagne and cherry cola. L-o-l-a Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola.

She isn't a Christmas puppy, but despite my protestations because a summer puppy makes so much more sense, we got a puppy in the winter. It's been, um, really cold.

*Not really, but let's face it: we all know I have it in me. I don't even know what's so funny about Best in Show. Great movie. Makes wiping up dog pee all day sound super glamorous.

(Who am I kidding? I love our puppy!)
