My puppy-less dog


Two months ago our dog had puppies. It was a surprise to us because it was not planned. She spent a bit of time with my sisters Doberman at just the right time of her cycle. (We were in Honduras while this was going on). So one fine Tuesday morn these appeared


We researched to see if the mix of a Doberman and a Rottweiler was a desirable mix and low and behold found they are considered a “designer breed” which is called Rottermans and people pay money for this “mutt”. My husband put them up for sale for $350 each and they were quickly spoken for and yesterday the last two went. Now we are back to a quiet one dog home with a few extra dollars in our pockets. I was happy to see them go because they were a bit of work and me being in my 3rd trimester it was not something I had a lot of energy for but now it’s all over. Alls well that ends well.

December is here!

The holiday season has arrived! I really do enjoy this time of year, it’s fun making the cookies, decorating and being all cosy inside with a cup of tea or hot cocoa.

One thing is lacking which is a good snow storm. We have snow but not very much. I am hoping to get one or two before Christmas.

Things have been a bit stressful because we have a lot going on and the fact I am pregnant does not help. I think this being my last few weeks of being pregnant and feeling achy and big all the time is the main stress factor. I have lightened up the kids school load and that has helped a lot.

The baby will be here the day after Christmas, I never would have thought I would have a Christmas baby and now I am!
