One week ago today, we picked you up from your birthplace.
We met the humans who brought you into this world.
We met your mom (Shannon), your dad (MacGregor), and your siblings.
Then you took your first ride in the car,
Had had your first portrait made,
Spent your first night away from your family.
It has been a week of firsts …
First going to sleep alone in a crate.
First trying to pee in the rain.
First visit to The Vet.
First time to meet Arya.
We heard your first bark (at Arya),
Watched your first frenzied play that collapsed into a nap,
Laughed at your first romp with each new toy.
You, with your yips and growls,
Your ferocious energy and warm cuddliness,
Your puppy eyes and ears and feet and nose …
You have frolicked your way solidly into our hearts.
And we are grateful for you.
Bless to me this puppy.
His waking and sleeping,
His eating and playing,
His eyes and ears,
His sharp little teeth.
Bless to me the joy he brings —
Bless to me this puppy.

What a wonderful celebration of JJ and all his firsts❣️❤️ Such happy times with your precious new family member!! How many siblings did he have? He must have been the first to leave the nest and go to his wonderful new home.🥰
There were two of them. They were leaving on Monday
There were two siblings. I think they left on Monday the 13th.
His sharp little teeth! What a blessing, in every way. 🙂

So many first challenges. With true Scottie determination he met them all.
Yes! True Scottie determination!
JJ makes my heart happy and I am pleased that he is filling a hole in your heart.
Thank you. We are full of love and joy.
You must be on Cloud Nine and enjoying JJ so much. He is just precious and beautiful. I know the pain and joy there is in losing one Scottie and then, what seems like an eternity, waiting for another little one to come into your life. Your time has come and so has JJ’s. He’s now in the best home where he will be loved and you both will have have the best times of your lives.
Oh thank you! We are so glad that he is finally here. ❤️❤️❤️
