Puppy Truck!

The day of the puppy truck Kinsley (exchange kid from Texas), Amber (best friend), Mom, Betsy (PIT), and I all loaded in the car for a trip to Denver. We were being followed by the puppy truck, which was really exciting! Jorinda was one of the last ones to come off the truck. When they told me her name I did a double take. I couldn't believe that a tiny little puppy had such a big name! She is such a cutie though! I had to leave shortly after picking up Jojo. She went home with Stacie and Alex straight from the truck. Check out their blog for pictures of her first couple days!

Meet Jorinda!

It's pronounced Jo-rin-da. The rin part is r-in. I will probably call her Jojo, Joree, or Jordee. But mainly she is called Jorinda. My CFR said she needs to learn her name, but she can also go by a nickname. I figure she should learn her real name first, and only learn one name at a time so she doesn't get too confused. 

I am holdin Jorinda in front of the puppy truck. She is a caramel colored. Her face is darker than the rest of her body

Jorinda's face is all wrinkled up while she rests her head on a toy

Her parents are Jay x Dorinda, so she is named after her momma.

She is the right hip female. Anyone know what that means?

I promise to do a major update in a weekish. I leave tomorrow morning to help my aunt with a photoshoot and I will be gone until Sunday. I have company arriving on Monday and leaving the following Monday. Miss J arrives a week from tomorrow. I will try really hard to update you with at least her name and a picture, but I can't promise anything. You all will hear from me again when my life settles down a bit. Sorry!

Here is a hint as to what Betsy and I have been up to.

A picture of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. The sun is setting so they are purple ish. There are pine trees right before the mountains.

I am way behind in reading blogs and blogging. I have lots of adventures to write about when I get time. Betsy and I have been "on the road" for the past two weeks. 

I have two major things to tell you right now, and they are both good news! 

1) Betsy isn't going back in June. She will probably go back somewhere around August 12 :)! Woo!

2) On June 25 I will become the proud raiser of female yellow lab "J"! I am hoping for Jackie, Jordyn, or Jojo! Let your name guesses poor in!

I am hoping to get caught up on blogs sometime next week. I am getting home from my aunts house probably Wednesday(16th), then I leave for the weekend on Friday(18th) and get back Sunday(20th), and then on Monday(21-28th) I have guests coming for a week, and Miss J comes in on that Friday(25th)! Busy, busy, busy! 

Any advice on handling two puppies at once would be great!
