I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that I plan parties in my head that I never get around to throwing. I also like to amass supplies for said parties, which paints for you a lovely image of my guest bedroom closet. And while time is always tight, on this one I just went ahead and distributed the invitations. So this time we are really having a party. Or a pawty, I should say. The honoree is a fat and sassy blonde.
Meet Buttercup, our new yellow Lab!
Honestly, looking at this picture of her with her fat little tum, I don’t know how anyone could resist her! And that’s coming from someone she uses as a human chew toy at 2am when she can’t sleep. Why, it almost makes me forget the 1000 assorted cuts, scratches and a possible case of poison ivy she has bestowed. The kids are simultaneously head over heels and terrified. Her teeth are beyond sharp, and while I’ve never been bitten by a shark, it’s the closest thing I can imagine. Ahhh…the joys of puppyhood. All that said, it’s nothing that a little training can’t fix. Fingers crossed.
Over these last two weeks she has been a very big girl, and I think she’ll be a wonderful addition to our family. All our neighborhood friends are excited when they see her and anxious to play with Princess Buttercup. So I decided to throw a puppy party play date after school next week.
Here are the invitations I whipped up.
Can’t wait to share pictures of Buttercup’s big day!
