Keely and Her New Buddy!

This is a classic picture of the two of them. Ellie is wondering why Keely is on the couch when usually that is her spot. I think Keely is just glad to be taller than someone even if she is cheating.

For some reason, Keely really liked standing over Ellie's head. Not sure what that was about, but it was pretty funny. Ellie would tolerate it as long as Keely wasn't touching her.

There were some very cute moments of sharing, of course that lasted about 2 minutes until Keely decided she wanted to play tug of war.

WOW, What a Week

Well, I think the pic of Keely and I says it all. We had a wild, fun and exhausting last week and weekend. My trip to Mexico for work turned out to be a marathon. We were supposed to get into Mexico on Monday at 12:30pm, and because of bad weather in Dallas we didn’t get there till 7pm. We went the next morning, saw the plant and then we were at the airport again at 10:30am to head home. I guess less than 24 hours in Mexico is a good thing. Justin and Keely had fun while I was gone; although I am sure Keely missed me!! We were finally able to get most of the house painted on Thursday and I love the colors. The house is really coming together. Keely went for her first vet visit on Thursday. She loves her vet and is already 21 pounds. Her vet said she had good genes and that she was beautiful. Thanks Lilly and Atlas!!!!!

My family came down this weekend to visit and to meet Keely. Of course they did way too much work! They helped us organize the garage, and mom did some wonderful landscaping. Keely loved Anna a lot and cuddled as much as she could. Ellie and Keely had some fun playing and Ellie was pretty patient with her new very rambunctious friend. Keely got lots of presents from everyone too! More pics to come, including some of Keely and Ellie.

Our first week with Keely

Ok, so I am new to the blog world and I know most of you up until now have been keeping up with Keely on the Goedeker's blog. Please be patient as I am not nearly as creative as Nikki!!! I may be soliciting her help on this.

Our journey to get our bundle of joy began what seems like a million years ago. We were so lucky to find the Goedekers and then for them to choose us to be Keely's new parents. Keely was born on July 5 as a singleton (meaning she was the only puppy) and we were able to bring her home with us on August 31. As you can see in the picture, Keely doesn't mind car trips at all. She slept most of the way, and then played the rest of the time. We were able to spend the long Labor Day weekend getting her settled in our house and bonding. She loves to crawl under the beds, cuddle on the couch with dad, run around in the back yard and go on short walks in our neighbor hood. She has just this weekend discovered the wonderful world of toilet paper rolls! I know I will no longer make fun of my dad for being in bed at 9 o'clock every night. Justin and I have been so tuckered out we can barely keep our eyes open past 9pm. Needless to say before Keely we were not waking up at 6am everyday. It is worth every minute though, we both love her so much.

Keely loves to play with all of her toys, but seems to really enjoy the frisbee and her new pal Mal (you will understand the name when you see the pic). We had our first rain this weekend and she isn't a huge fan of having to go outside when there are weird drops of stuff hitting her back. She must get this from her Aunt Ellie who despises going outside and getting her paws wet.

I am off to Mexico tomorrow morning for work. I am coming back Tuesday night so it is a little crazy, but will be interesting to visit one of our other plants. Justin and Keely will holding down the fort while I am gone. Keely is really looking forward to this next weekend when Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Anna, Uncle David, and Aunt Ellie come to visit. Hope everyone is doing well and have a great week.
