Our new cousin, oh the drama





My sister Natalie got a new puppy, Roxi (with an i NOT a y). They came over to visit us yesterday so T & T could meet and play with their new cousin. They were so cute together! Tucker wanted to hold her most of the time but he's not the most gentle little guy. Instead he was happy enough to run around. He was more interested in eating chips inside the house than he was playing with her. Tatum on the other hand instantly fell in love. She loved to run while Roxi chased her, and she loved when Roxi licked at her and pulled her hair. Well, Tater and Roxi were playing on the floor, sort of wrestling and Roxi was nipping at her ears and got her just right and her sharp little teeth sliced Tatum's ear. Oh she was so sad. Huge alligator tears everywhere. Drama, drama, drama. Can I just say that head wounds do not stop bleeding! Poor little girl had it everywhere: in her ears, her hair, on her pillow. Fortunately, she still loves little Roxi and has wanted to see her ever since she left. Don't worry Roxi, you're still our new favorite cousin!

Oh, sad Heidi, poor Tatum. Yeah, the same thing happened to Luke today at the stake carnival. He was petting a doggie who just wanted to play and accidently scratched his face with it's teeth. Luke freaked! But, I'm sure tomorrow he'll be asking for a puppy again. Good luck!

What a cute picture of Tatum and her "cousin". That's nice that you have sort of a "rent a pet" thing going on, I could use that right about now.

How sad for Tatum! That is some strong lov for a puppy to be so forgiving after an incident like that! Roxi is way cute. As for the picture below, man I love that kid. How fun to have him! He's such a crack up! Great pic!

Don't fall for the trick! Puppies are so much work! Unless you are not planning on having more kids!:) Gosh, I'm glad Tatum isn't scared of Roxi! Brave little girl!

Hey "cute hair". That was your name for the first couple of months that I saw you. When I read this post it reminded me of when we were kids our cousin came over and was playing with our great dog "Kloskie" (polish) and she (my cousin) was rolling around on the grass eating a peice of bread. She threw the bread up at the dog and when it landed, it landed on her neck and he took a bite of the bread and her neck. Bloody and sad, huh? I miss that dog:-(

Cute new blog header!! That puppy looks like so much fun! Tatum and Tucker are so cute! How sad that Tatum got her ear nipped. I'm glad that she is so forgiving!

Okay - the picture of Tucker in his red undies and bandana is CLASSIC! What a little stud! Definitely one for the wedding video!
