NJ Blizzard of 09

Kiwi got to enjoy the almost 2 feet of snow we got.  Im assuming being from Maine she is probably somewhat used to it...but we had a good time with the dogs playing in the snow out back of my parents house.  Unfortunately poor Kiwi got cold pretty quick...her saggy belly (or udders as Matt and I call them) literally drag in the snow. So after a half hour or so we did take her inside.

Pictures of course...

Merry Christmas Kiwi!!!

Well we met them and they loved her!! They were just wonderful and Kiwi seemed to think the same right from the start :)  IT was so obvious that this family truly loves animals and Kiwi will be just as spoiled as she is currently.  It has been so bittersweet thinking about having to let her go to another home but I am so happy to know she is going to have a really great family.

Since its going to be hectic over the holidays we decided it would be best to wait until the week after Christmas to transfer Kiwi into her new home.   We will miss her but know she is going to a great place.

So as long as all goes welll....Meet Kiwi's new family (minus the husband)

Kiwi might get her Christmas Wish

On Tuesday a woman called and showed interest in Kiwi.  She filled out an adoption application and sounded like a great match.  She is married with 3 teenage children.  They have an 11 year old lab and had just recently lost their other lab to cancer.  She felt her lab was lonely and they needed a second dog in the home again...however due to her labs age there was no way that she could bring a young puppy into the home.  She started looking on petfinder and found Kiwi.
So we spoke on the phone and arrangements were made for her to come this evening to meet Ms. Kiwi.

She got her bath this morning and is now smelling all nice and clean to meet them.

Dino Face

I think everyone has to agree that one of the best things about dogs are the greetings you get when you walk in the door.  You could be gone for 5 days, 5 hours or even 5 minutes and your dog will always be just as excited to see you.  I always thought Grayce gave the best greetings but I might have to admit that Kiwi's excited greetings top hers.

Kiwi does this thing that Matt and I refer to as "Dino Face".  It begins with a twitch of her lips, and pulling them back up over her teeth...she looks like shes giving you a big toothy grin (all the while running at you with her entire body wagging)...once she gets in full swing her uncontrollable dino-chomp begins.  She will run around just chomping her mouth open and closed, sometimes giving little nips so be careful!  It is the cutest and most hilarious thing to see.

We successfully captured some of her "Dino Face" on camera after much running around like idiots ourselves trying to get Kiwi excited.

The beginning of the dino face..her uncontrollable toothy grin

Here we go!!!!

Almost there...

There it is!! DINO FACE!
Note that even Matt has some Dino face going on.

Than just because they are cute...

Kiwi learns quickly

Went to visit my parents briefly and Kiwi picked up real quickly that "grandmom" spoils all weims and provides treats at the slightest sad dog face.
 She was immediately my mothers new shadow in the kitchen.
