Lazy Afternoon with Ashley

Thank you all for sharing the joy of the new addition to my family and all your nice comments! Everyone at home seems to be really busy except me and Ashley. All she does all day is eat, sleep, pee and poop which is actually quite similar to what I do everyday too! Hee Hee!

I have been watching over her like a big brother should. Whenever she cries, I will get up and check on her. I like to lie near to her when she naps on the sofa. She is still very small, so I am not allowed to be alone with her or lick her face, but I did managed to smell and lick her tiny toes, so I am quite happy.

She makes weird noises and the funniest expressions, I should really capture her on video to share with you all.

The not so good news today is that I have been attacked by some nasty ticks and it itched like crazy. Grandma even removed about forty bugs from my body yesterday. These creepy crawlies were moving around the floor and Dad quickly threw away the new carpet in the living room.

So I was picked up today by the groomer and horrors of horrors!!! I am going to be shaved! Not again! I hope the groomer will give me a flattering cut. Above is the last pic of me with my crowning glory before I become bald. I will share some pics tomorrow, don't you all laugh at me!

Your little baby sister is so adorable Dino, thanks for sharing the pics with us all. And soon enough you will be able to lick her and kiss her and show her all the love you have inside of you, she is just too teeny right now! Im sure she's getting used to your scent and presence though.

We get shaved every summer and WE LOVE IT! Its so much cooler and it makes us look years younger everyone tells us! Sorry a bout the buggies though, that had to be uncomfortable. Good luck at the groomer! Take care Dino!

The newby is a cutie!

So are you, of course. Where did all those ticks come from? That's scary. Attack of the ticks.

Wannie said...

What a lovely little sister, Dino! So sorry about your ticks though... I'm sure you'll still look very cute and friendly after the groomer shaves you! Looking forward to seeing some pictures :)

Hi Dino

We didn't get a chance to congratulate you the other day when you posted Ashley's pictures. She is so adorable. We are sure you will be the best big brother ever.
Hope you feel better after your shave.

hi dino!
i started scratching when i read about the nasty big attack. Mom says that carpets are a no-no when one has dogs or cats, it encourages those bugs to stake out at your home....hmm..

i love it that you have become the unofficial ashley nanny! keep up the good work!
we miss everyone there lots and cant' wait to return..

lots of love, lil' pups

Go shave Dino so the bugs will not bother baby Ashley! I'm sure you're still handsome, only flattering clean!
I just want to be around baby Asley to sniff her fresh milk breath, I just want to hold her!
You lucky you Dino!

Hi Dino and family,


Ashley is a booti-ful baby girl! We think she takes after your dad.


Snowy and Crystal said...

Oh we are sorry to read about the ticks, but so happy to read in the newest post that you are tick-free ^_^

oh you gotta share that video of Ashley making some noises some day . We bet that it would be so very precious.

It is so sweet to read about you acting like a good big brother wanting to be close to Ashley and checks on her wen she cries and just wanna protect her *wet licks* such a good boy you are
