Today was the day we have all been waiting for (and the purpose of our trip to Arkansas, which may not have been our first choice of destination for sightseeing in July, otherwise)! Introducing Penny Pickle Rose, our new brown beauty Portuguese Water Dog. We have been waiting several months for her to be born and ready to join our family, and we welcome her to the mayhem. So far she is super sweet and the girls are excited to have a new playmate that can actually play (as opposed to sack-of-potatoes-that-cries Orly). She is so cute! (Note: we ripped off our masks only momentarily for this picture with her breeder/mom’s owner Diane. Kaya didn’t even hear me say it, apparently). PS – it was also my birthday!
