{welcome marlee}
"whoever said you can't buy happiness,
 forgot little puppies"
Definitely time for a HAPPY update!
we have welcomed a new baby to our family :) Marlee is a Papillon just like our Mya! Maybe it felt too soon for me, adding another dog after losing our beautiful Mya. But the kids were so miserable, crying and missing her so. I also knew finding a female papillon would be a challenge, as there is less of them available due to small litter sizes and waiting lists. So she kinda fell into our laps when I found a breeder from Ohio with this little girl, just a few weeks away from leaving her litter.
Marlee comes from a long line of champions (although she was just sold as a pet) Like Mya, she hould only be about 5-6lbs full grown.
As you can see she fits perfectly into our family :) cuddled up
to Jack right away, just as though she knew he needed it the most.
Dogs are so smart.
This smile says it all.
Taken with my iPhone when we first got back
from picking her up from the airport.
Another iPhone pic one night, of Logan and Marlee :)
She loves to sleep on slippers.
 AND... Senna got her girl again--there was no way
we would be adding another boy to this family!
 Her ears were down when she first arrived, but will
continue to go up and down while she does her teething!

Girls gotta have their UGGS!
truly the sweetest thing ever.


who doesn't love a sleeping puppy?
OK, is it that obvious that I miss babies to take pics of?!

She's so easy to photograph! I'm having a lot of fun :)

How about a little dance?
Getting rowdy with Jack.

Her show pose :)
Her beautiful new collar and tag.

{Our Sweet Valentines}
she really did enjoy this photo prop way too much!
Marlee had her first "Puppy Manners" class this morning :)
It was a lot of fun seeing her get excited around the other puppies in her class, including another Papillon that was literally 3 times her size! This class was more to get her socialized since Mya was such a snob with other dogs (she thought she was human) If I want to change that this time, its important to get this little girl around other dogs at an earlier age.
I took these pics yesterday, Marlee will be 12 weeks old on Monday.
You can already see how much bigger she has gotten!
This includes her big beautiful butterfly ears :)
But her toys are still much bigger than she is!
Despite the arrival of our special baby, I found Jack crying in bed last night :(  he still misses his sweet Mya terribly.  I know having Marlee has helped keep his mind off losing Mya but the pain is still there. Nights are always the worst for him.
We all still need time to heal.

oh my gosh, she is a beautiful puppy! Love the pictures! Marlee seems like a sweetie!

She's beautiful! A puppy is always so much fun. I'm sorry Jack is still missing Mya. That hurt will always be there but he will make a new bonding with Marlee and it will be very special too.

such sweet photos and a great new addition to your family :) <3

Carrie said...

Aww, Marlee is so precious and adorable! I am so happy that you were able to add onto your family in such an awesome way. Although Mya will continue to live on in your hearts always, the pain of losing her will always be there to some extent. I'm just glad that Marlee is there with you, to help with the healing process. I will keep your family in my prayers. Enjoy your little sweetheart! :)

Baby Marlee is so dag gone cute. I know it helps to heal the grief. She seems to be fitting into the Pierce Family quite well.

Your an amazing photographer! Are you a photographer by profession? You kids and that puppy are beautiful :) my two kiddos ages 8 and 5 want a puppy soooo bad. I think we will give in next year. We want a small dog a Papillon might be our type of dog. My son want a chihuahua but I'm not really liking them. Not enough fur to rub your hands through and some can be so shakey and nervous. I'll have to do my research. Thanks for sharing this puppy love with us. That dog is adorable.
