It was a long and agonizing (and sometimes traumatizing) 11 weeks... but it was all worth it when I went to the airport on Wednesday to pick up my Koolie puppy! When I first saw her in her carrier I SQUEALED "OH MY GOD!!!" in my most embarrassing high-pitched voice. She's even cuter and more charming in real life. She was dead silent, sedate, and not very interested in playing/toys for the first 36 hrs. I was SO worried, but last night (at 12am :rofl1 it was like her engine roared to life -- she and Lugia started barking and shrieking and chasing each other on my bed, I opened my door to let them out, and they SPRINTED up the stairs to the living room, where they commenced some very enthusiastic playfighting right on top of my sleeping mother :rofl1: Her toy drive kicked in out of no where, and she was going completely bananas chasing balls, stealing towels off the countertops, and tugging absolutely everything. Oh, and did I mention that she did this while squeaking (barking) the whole time? I couldn't stop laughing, I was SO HAPPY to see that she's feeling better and more comfortable in my home. I'm also really lucky that my family has a good sense of humour. Now it's time for pics!

(To me, anyway) face by page.iida, on Flickr IMG_5293 by page.iida, on Flickr IMG_5284 by page.iida, on Flickr It's only been a few days, but they're quickly becoming fast friends! She has her own Facebook page, which is what I'll (constantly) be updating with regards to photos and videos.
