Feeling a bit Green today

 Meet Rose..... 
our newest member of the family this is her happy face so dont be fooled lol
 At the moment she is shedding  (face lift mark 1without all those injections too bonus)
 She does have a sister somewhere
but Peach is hiding and will be moving out very soon to a new abode (I hope)
 They have settled in well eating and drinking and getting to know the place and making it their own
   Thought  Rose had got out some how but no she was doing what she does best and was camoflaged under  a leaf asleep lol Oh  its gonna be fun !!!!

4am .....

 .....is an ungodly hour to be awake and when you cant get to sleep even worse.  
But  see who can sleep for England  If she's not running off with my slippers or my socks ( thats hubby's fault)
She's asleep on the couch or under somebody's sleeve snoring her head off. 
Some guard dog Huh !!!
 Pop by tomorrow as I have some goodies to show you and I cant wait  its so exciting.
 Off to buy some crickets  now for the chameleon.Dont ask! Mum gave in to kids puppy eyes
  I will get a pic for you once settled in

Getting to know you ........

...... is what we have been doing with our new arrival  Bella's first few days in the house have been quite an eye opener for the children.Aidan's got a best friend  Josh is fascinated with her feet and its been lovely to have a dog in the house again since losing Buster and Tasha over the last couple of years.
 With her being a puppy I expected more well........  mayhem you know all my favourite things chewed up, puddles and little presents everywhere, constantly on the go as they want attention more than a child but NO she's had a couple of puddles with excitement and she wasn't let out, no little presents indoors(bonus)and chewing things up well shes was given  my slippers and some toys and she has a been  really good with getting to know us The only other thing she has taken a liking to is Hubby's  herb  pots   those chives are real yummy lol.
 Here she is play wrestling with my friends child. She took an instant liking to her and pinned her down and licked her all over on every visit they made lol.We all had a good giggle on that sunny afternoon I think it was Amy's laugh Bella couldn't resist she couldn't hide anywhere. Bella found her out.Then this is  how  she spends the rest of time fast on asleep in the most strangest positions possible I think we are going to have some fun times ahead.
