I just wanted to let everyone that reads my blog know that I appreciate your comments and the interest you are takeing in my blog. The comments are what keep me blogging. I always enjoy
reading them. Even if I don't respond directley to them I wanted to let you know they
are still appreciated:) Mulan says "Thanks" to all of her fans.
She just told me she is looking forward to watching the girls perform on American Idol tonight.

Coming up this Monday Mulan is officially legal to go anywhere!
This is because she is almost five monthes old and has almost completed her puppy classes
I received a little laminated card with my name on it and everything from the CCI.
I am very proud of her:)

A Welcome Break

Hurrah! I was relieved of my puppy duties Sunday while Mulan
stayed at a friends house. My mom and I spent a nice day together.
We went to the mall and looked at the puppies inside the pet store.
They were so cute but I now know how much work and commitment a
puppy takes and I did not beg for one like I used to.
I think Mulan got into our friends dog food while she was there because
I have been on pooper scooper duty all morning(sigh). I think it is the lab in
I know my grandparents will appreciate this because they are Northreners
but I made my first Philly Cheesesteaks for dinner the other night.
They were very good and I am kind of proud of them.

Enjoying our first bite of our cheesesteaks(delicious)

New Pictures

It is funny how many comments I receive when I post pictures but when I just type something there are rarely any:) Mulan is doing great! She is loving the wet weather we have been having.
I am glad she is enjoying it but I wish she would not dig all sorts of holes in the yard because she always comes in soaking wet and muddy(She is such a lab!)
Tommorrow we are going to visit another puppy raiser so Mulan can have a play session with another Lab.

Me and Mulan watching American Idol:) She wants Paris Bennet to win.

Four Month Old Pictures

Ok, so I am a little overdue in posting Mulan's four month pictures but we
had to retake them all because they got deleted from the digital camera:)
I am really looking forward to seeing Mulan's new classmates tonight at lessons.
There is something about someone else's puppy that make them especially appealing.
Maybe because you only see them on their best behavior.

We finally get a pool

Mulan is a water dog she loves the new plastic kiddie pool we got for her!
She goes wild.
I was going to wait to post until I had our Monday night puppy class
to talk about but we were switched to Thursday nights instead.
The trainer thought Mulan would enjoy a class with bigger dogs in it instead
of little froofroo dogs. I am excited to see how it will go:)

Piano Day Again

I never enjoyed piano. Now we often have
to bring Mulan which turns it into one big operation
of a long car ride to Dallas and back with a loud
puppy in the backseat.
Monday we attended our first puppy class with Mulan.
She was so advance that she was bored!
The teacher was using her as a example for the other
puppies. I knew what a proud mother must feel like
when her child gets a "A" on a test.

Super Bowl Sunday

Mulan was so tired out after romping with some
doggy friends last night that she has been sleeping
most of the day.
I thought at first she was sick and then I realized
she was just tired.
She has been sleeping most of the Super Bowl.
I wouldn't mind missing the Super Bowl because I am
not a big football fan, but I would mind missing all the neat
commercials. So I was able to enjoy quite a few of them.
I have to give Mulan a bath before doggy classes tommorrow.
Wish me luck!

Daddy Meets Another Celebrity!

Ok, so this is not really dog related
but my dad is at a conference looking for a meeting
site and he happened to run into someone I think most
of you will know:)
Mulan is doing well and we had a lovely evening at some
friends last night.

Puppy Classes

We attended puppy classes this Monday.
It was a orientation so we didn't bring Mulan
but we will next week.
The teacher covered a lot of information.
We found out the Kong we were using for Mulan
was too big so we bought a smaller one and now
she plays with it for over thirty minutes at a
We found out she is pretty advanced above the other
puppies in the class.
The rest of the puppies are going to be clicker trained
while Mulan has to respond to voice commands.
Besides that there is not much else new:)
