Baby Teddy

My daughter is coming home this weekend with her new beau. He is a gorgeous southern guy and a marine. Just the sweetest guy you could ever meet. They were here 2 weeks ago and I promised him if he came back, I would make him gumbo. So, this whole week I am working on the gumbo and making him lots of his favorite foods to take back to the base. I will post all of the food when I am done but meanwhile, I will be doing some Teddy posts. Someone asked me yesterday if I had any baby pictures of Teddy. I've posted these before but I didn't think it would hurt to post them again.

This is a pic of Teddy on her first day with us. Click for a better look.


When we first got her, she would run around like crazy constantly and then just drop and fall fast asleep. After a quick nap she was up and on the go again.

Teddy....the cement block.


A busy puppy taking a bit of a rest.


This is Teddy a few weeks later. She sure grew fast.


When she was just a few months old, we drove all the way to Cape Breton with her. Here she is in Nova Scotia.


We actually tried to kennel train her in the beginning. She did just fine but it broke my heart to see her in the cage so we stopped. This was a BIG mistake. I don't know how I am going to keep Teddy away from the marine on Easter. She is going to want a piece of him!
