Girl Power pups 5-6 weeks

Last week I recieved some sad news. My Aunt Mary (my godmother and my mother's twin sister) passed away suddenly. Thank God she did not suffer long and she died with her three children and many grandchildren by her side. My Aunt Mary was a ray of sunshine and a fabulous person; I will miss her.

Dennis, as usual, came through and got me plane tickets to fly out the next day to be able to attend my aunt's wake and funeral. I wanted to be there for her family, but also to say good-bye to her. It was a real Irish funeral; a celebration of her life. A sad event mixed in with lots of laughs about her life. She was the type of person who made everyone feel special; she made you feel good about yourself. I will never forget her laugh especially as it lives on in her children Mary, Elizabeth and Arthur.

I just got back home to England this afternoon and am so tired but wanted to post some you could all see what the pups have been up to. Dennis was in charge of the pups from Thurday to Monday. He took them on their first car ride and they had a visit at his office. They had some new visitors and met children for the first time. I hope to post more photos and video tomorrow but it depends on how tired I am feeling. First things first and I have pups to play with!

So here are a few tasters of what Dennis and pups got up to for the weekend.

I am glad they got to meet some nice children this weekend.

They took two car rides with Dennis; once in his car and once in mine. In my car they got to ride in the top cages and watch the world go by.

Dennis took the pups out of the car and into the office in a fancy basket!

And out pop the pups.

On Monday Dennis had to leave for Japan so I asked Nancy if she could watch the pups for one night. You can see their progress with Nancy on her blog at:

I think Nancy is absolutely fed up with picking up poo and wiping up wee! It was great of her to take care of the pups for us and she did a fabulous job. Thanks Nancy and thanks Andy for lending us Nancy!

More later when I have energy.

Sorry to hear about your Aunt Bernadette.

Been keeping up with the pups on Nancy's blog but I love the picture of the 'puppies in a basket'

We're very sorry about your Aunt Mary. That certainly was a difficult trip to make, but a good one in it's own way. And the pups are beautiful!
