Alphabe-Thursday

L is for Ladybug
No no no...not that Ladybug.
This Ladybug!

 
Ladybug was my Christmas present in 2008.  She was such a surprise because I had been trying to talk hubs into a dog for a while after loosing our 14 year old dog a couple of years before.  I have always wanted a little black Scottie and hubs was just not going for it.  But our three daughters can talk him into anything most of the time and our middle one went to work on him.  She searched high and low and only found one breeder in the state that had puppies and went to work on hubs.  I was put on the spot Christmas day and made to open the first present which I found quite strange because everyone knows how I do not like to be singled out.  The present ended up being a frame with a picture of a Scottie pup in it.  I have to say my blond was showing through because it took me some time staring at this picture before it hit me what it represented.  Above is a picture of Ladybug the first day we brought her home.













Look those ears just pop up!  She was really funny for a day or two she only had one up and the other was still laying down.  I could not find a picture of that look      
                                                  
Her favorite buddy to curl up with has always been our oldest grandson.

















After her baths she rolls all over until her hair is shooting out everywhere.













First haircut.














Her favorite past time.
Always wants to be where ever the grandchildren are.

And this is where she spent most of a months time after hubs broke his collar bone and had his surgery.  Funny how dogs get blue eyes instead of red eye when you take a picture.  And the red eye fix does not seem to work.  I know this is a lot of pictures of our Ladybug and is probably starting to drag on way too long but we love her and I guess we brag about her almost as much as we do our children and grandchildren.  Linking up with Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday so run on over and check out what the other participants have to share this week.  I hope you did not mind I brought my pet to school this week Mrs. Matlock!

You know I love tht Ladybug..those are terrific photos! I love the one after her hair cut. Isn't it funny how the dogs sense when someone is sick. Reuben follows me downstairs if i get up early because my knee hurts. It is hard to imagine our lives without our little pups!

Hi Brenda

Ladybug is the cutest little dog! She has such personality and looks like a good and loyal friend.Pets add so much joy to our lives.

Yes, I find it hard to keep up with "Dear Reader" e-mails as much as I did before blogging, but I hardly miss reading one of Suzanne's notes...I even won her chocolate chip cookies in a contest once! They were so yummy!

Jenny said...

Oh Brenda, she is absolutely precious!

I'm happy you brought her to school today to show the other children how to properly care for a pet.

Something you obviously do well...look at that happy, healthy, wonderful Ladybug!

Thanks for the cute stop for letter "L"!

A+

Love that picture of Ladybug trying to hop in the tub! She is precious...

MrsJenB said...

What a sweetheart! Oh, you make me want a little doggie so bad!! I especially love the pics of her cuddling with your grandson and leaning into the tub - priceless!

Jen R said...

Ha ha the only reason I don't like ladybugs is because I always end up with 65,000 of them hiding out in all the nooks and crannys of my house and trailer every winter. They drive me a little nutty.

marina said...

Your ladybug is just adorable!!! how cute she was the first day!!! I can smell the puppy smell :-) I am sure she gives you so much joy!!!

Christy said...

Ladybug is a luvvie! Great name for a pup, she's gorgeous. We love dogs here at the Presbytere, as you can probably tell.

Tina said...

Now I really REALLY want a dog. Ladybug is adorable! We are still working on convincing The Engineer that since we are now homeschooling, hence three of us are AT HOME all the time, his excuse that "no one is at home" no longer applies...wish me luck!

Pondside said...

Ladybug is very cute! I think that she might like my little Cairn, Rosie. Scotties are such good company - and the photo of Ladybug with your grandchildren at the bath says it all! They like to be where the action is.

laterg8r said...

such a cute litte bug :D

Michelle said...

There's something about Scotties that are just so adorable. Darling dogs with the cutest personalities!

Cindy said...

Please tell me the truth....was it hard having a puppy again? I am very close to getting a puppy, after losing our airedale that we had for ten years. I am just hoping it won't be too much for me to handle with a busy summer life. Most of the things I do, I could take the dog with me, which sounds so fun. I was thinking of a Welsh Terrier, and after looking at your adorable scottie pics, I'm thinking I just gotta have a puppy!

Melinda Cornish said...

mub said...
