We have a new baby!!!
I've been talking about this for a while, and last week, without much notice, I surprised my family with Coco (as Chanel....). It took us a few days to come up with her name, 5 of us to contend... finally we choose the same name as my cousin's dog, but it fits her so well. When I walked in the house with my tiny surprise the kids were ecstatic, they love her. And she's such a good dog, she's fulfilling her role of "baby-substitute" perfectly. She very cuddly, very affectionate, will stay this perfect baby size for ever...( she's a lap-dog, a king's Charles Spaniel), so soft, playful, keeps her teething to her chewing toys (and occasionally my fingers..), we're smitten with her. The children are being very responsible, house training is going well, we're starting puppy school next week ( proper education is a must!).
Isn't she sooooo cute?

She's so good to the children, who just can't resist picking her up,

I bet you're all saying "awww", just so that you know, she still has a twin sister waiting to be adopted....  Let me know, and I'll put you in touch with their breeder.

You can leave me a comment (click on the comment link, right below this post), you know how proud mamas love to boost about their babies, and how we love to hear compliments...  I would love to hear what you have to say about my "cocotte"

I especially love how it looks like a newborn photo session with the dog curled in the hand. Very beautiful baby!

Wow! Will steals the picture in that last frame. He looks so handsome. Coco comes in 4th after the other two beauties. I hope Grandma Indies can show her the ropes around LaRua. Can't wait to see the little bugger. Your cuz...
