Alva Arrives

Here she is… for some reason the photos have been turned 90 degrees.  Just turn your head so that her nose is below both of her eyes, and you'll be looking at her properly.

We got her home, set up her bed with her blanket from Cathy's.  She's curled up and sleeping on one of our cushions instead.  Not that I mind, but we *did* buy her the bed specifically.

Well, that worked surprisingly well!

Meet Alva (formally Schneewichen Rosebud Hevn "Alva"), my little girl. I pick her up the weekend after we move into the house!  in the top set of photos, there are two puppies… Alva, and her sister Livia.  They're 9 weeks old at the moment.  Aren't they cuuuuuuuuute! 😀

The breeder is a retired vet nurse (edit: she's done vet nursing, but see her response (Cathy Davies)), has beautifully trained dogs, and obviously loves them dearly.  We talked for just on 2 hours, about what's involved with Maltese, etc etc. (oh, and just in case you hadn't figured it out, She's a Maltese.

I’m a daddy!

On a lighter note, I'm proud to present my gorgeous little girl, Pico.

isn't she cute?  She's a Silky x Maltese, and turns 4 months on Sunday.  Her name is pico because she is tiny.  shen she's standing straight up on her back legs with her paws as far up as they'll go, she still can't reach to top of my knee when I'm sitting down.
