FREE e-book "8 Things to Know About Veterinary Care"

October 12, 2010

Oh, boy, do I have some puppy craving going on? Other girls might have biological clocks that tick for human babies, but my heart yearns for puppies. Not so much because I actually want a puppy right now. It’s more about the distraction and sense of possibility that they bring. Here are just a few new stinkers who have joined the families of friends.

Dalai, a great dane puppy, now living with my friend Sharon
"P," who is now living with our blog friend Dog Geek
Kodi, who is now living with my friend Mary. Notice how he surveys his vast domain. He is another Humane Society of Boulder Valley alum.

There is another terrific photo of Kodi laying nose to nose with Mary’s son, but I don’t like to post pix of kids without permission. Suffice it to say, little Kodi looks like a fox, and Mary’s son looks absolutely smitten.

Nothing better for anyone (child or adult) than the love of a dog.

About the Author Roxanne Hawn

Trained as a traditional journalist and based in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, USA, I'm a full-time freelance writer for magazines, websites, and private clients. My areas of specialty include everything in the lifestyles arena, including health and home, personal finance and other consumer interests, relationships and trends, people and business profiles ... and, of course, all things pet related.

I don't just love dogs. I need them in my life. Seriously.

  1. We transported some puppies to their new home in Wyoming a few months ago. I always said I didn’t want puppies in my house because they are so much work, but those two were so cute – just 8 weeks old. I can definitely see how people fall for them.

  2. We’ll bring PLENTY of photos – and hopefully video! – of our new Rory when we’re out there for Thanksgiving. And, of course, a pair of bozos to play with too…

  3. I am having the same yearnings! You would think it was spring or something. Of course, then I think about sleepless nights and I snapped right back to reality.

  4. I think you need to plan a visit to LA to spend some time with Dalai. I know that I am biased, but she sure is a wonderful little (okay, not so little-30lbs at 12 weeks) girl. And best of all,she’s sleeping through the night!

    1. Oh, I wish I could come see her while she is “small.” I’ve never hugged a young Dane. Alas, my travel budget is non-existent. Other than a trip to speak at ASJA next spring, I have nothing planned (other than trips that clients are paying for).

  5. Heh – well, if it makes you feel any better, the little Piglet is a dirt-eating pee and poo machine who is driving us to exhaustion. (Although he is awfully cute and did great at his first puppy class – awww!)

  6. You and me both… I keep gazing at yellow lab puppies with adoration. Oh, how I’d love to have one join us. Then, I snap back to reality. Maybe someday but I’ll just have to pine for now. My two keep me plenty busy!
