A New Gromit Shot

Just another picture of our dog, Gromit, looking up, giving us her “I’m cute and thus awaiting a treat with great anticipation” face.

She has such a long nose, I swear she must have some collie in her distant lineage. When she looks down her nose at you I feel like she should be wearing a set of half-glasses and judging us harshly – LOL.ย  But all we really know is that she’s mostly Lab and a bit Australian Shepherd.ย  Well, she seems pretty happy with herself in any case. ๐Ÿ˜€

Gromit at 16 Weeks Old

Time is flying and Gromit is growing so fast! She’s a 16 weeks old puppy now, and her baby incisors are falling out and adult ones coming in. Next will be those little pointy baby fangs!

Here are some new photos – the snow is almost all gone and we put out a long tie-out so she could finally run around without dragging us behind her like we were in a Scooby Doo cartoon – LOL.

Gromit, sitting all noble:

And standing in the high wind:

And looking derpy as only a dog can, with an ear back, a crushed ball hanging out the side of her mouth, and her tongue jutting out – heh:

Adopted a Puppy!

It was finally time to get a dog again, and through a friend we discovered a family who dog had puppies and they were adopting out! So, say hello to Gromit! She’s named after the dog in the British claymation show “Wallace and Gromit” – we decided on the name when she was still too small to know if she was a boy or girl, but we figured it worked either way. ๐Ÿ™‚ She’s a mostly lab pup, with a tad bit of aussie shepherd in her, though she looks mostly yellow lab at this point, and a little over 6 weeks old – awwww!
