The Life and Times: Lady Kiera Von Pooh (1)

The other day I did a post that linked up to the The Red Dress Club .  It was entitled Good-Bye, Samantha and as a result of doing that, several people had commented that they would like to see and/or hear more about Samantha's half sister, the new puppy I chose.  Grant you, I have done a few other posts about "the perfect dog," (which you can find by selecting "Kiera" on "Want More...Take Your Pick" on my sidebar) but, what I am about to reveal with these episodes are real adventures.  Some may require you to grab your Kleenex.  Some just make a cup of tea.  Others could be nail biting.  However, hopefully all will cause you to sit back and enjoy:


The Life and Times:  Lady Kiera Von Pooh



Now for just a few moments, we have to hit the rewind button, so to speak.  It's time to set the stage.   I was working at the bank in a department called "Branch Administration."   Everyone I worked with and for knew that I was "expecting" a puppy any day now.  I mean they all knew about all the research I'd done about raising and training a pup.  They all knew that I had already registered for KPT (Kindergarten Puppy Training) even though I hadn't yet gone to the kennel to bring my puppy home!  Let's face it, I'm a planner...always have been.  So, unless Sarah (aka Flashy Dancer), Samantha's dam, had all males, they also knew that I preferred a female.  After all, I was third on the list.  The day I got the call, Sarah had delivered eight pups on Mother's Day.  Five females and three males.  I'd be getting my girl. 

One day, I walk into work, sit at my desk and the next thing I knew..."SURPRISE!"


Yep, you got it.  They threw me a PUPPY SHOWER!  Check out that cake!  Isn't it great?  They even had the bakery attempt to do a "patched and ticked" pattern, like my new GSP (German Shorthair Pointer)!!
It was so heart warming!  My new puppy got leashes, chew toys, Frisbees and me...I got cake!!!

I LOVE this!!! I've bought many a "new puppy" or "new adopted dog" present for friends and co-workers, but have never seen a full-blown shower thrown! That's awesome!!!

That cake!!!!! A work of art....

What a fun idea about a "puppy shower" makes sense though, it's fun to shop for puppies not to mention the fun in getting the gifts.
