A Tiny Lil Mystery... Alot Of Cuckoo~Love...

I'm Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs...
Cuckoo-In-Love-With-Cocoa-Puffs...

Hey!... What's this photo doing in my Cocoa Puff post?

Have you figured it out, yet? It's such a tiny lil mystery...

Awwwww... Look at what's living with me, now...
A Puppy Dog!

I'm beyond thrilled to announce the arrival of my new baby girl...
Cocoa Puff...
We got her last weekend... she was 8 weeks old... she weighs 5 lbs.... though in most photos her eyes appear to be blue, they're really brown...
Say hello to all of the nice bloggers, Cocoa...

Cocoa was a gift from my dear friend, and our Vet... He knew I'd been wanting a lil lap dog to keep me company... She is a "Rescue" Puppy... she's also a mixed breed... Cocoa's Mommy passed away after a C-Section delivery that'd gone horribly wrong (not done by our Vet)... the details were never made clear to any of us... Apparently the litter of six puppies were swiftly dumped, in a box, at the SPCA... from there they were transferred to our Vet and upon arrival only two were alive... barely... Our Vet's group of workers kept them and nursed them til they could go to their "Forever Homes"...

Cocoa's Mommy was a Shih Tzu... details on her Daddy weren't clear, but it's believed that he might have been a Chow mix...

The only thing I know for certain is that she is amazingly soft... her coat is like lambs wool... very thick...

Cocoa was as happy to come home with us, as we were to have her! She's blended right in with all of us and is enjoying exploring her new home...

I'm sure she's on a sensory over-load, being as we already have two indoor cats and three ferrets! We are waiting awhile before we introduce her to all of the ferrets... However, she's met the cats! Cocoa wants so badly to play with them, but true to form, we have "skeerdy cats" and they run from her! Quite amusing...

I just love Cocoa's colors and markings... Of course I think she's the most beautiful puppy in the world! She's also a sweetheart with a very gentle disposition...

She did not "fight" having a collar put on... and she already knows what her leash means... Outside! Cocoa is very good at chasing 'n catching leaves...

Her pretty brown eyes show up nicely in this photo... Don't you just want to hold her?!... I knew it... There's only one "warning" that comes with her... ~whispers~ ... she can't "hold" her "licker" ...

Here she is, waiting in the kitchen for some Kibble...

Cocoa loves her "crunchies" and drinks lots of water...

We gave her a lil stuffed ferret to play with, since the "real-deal" is off limits for awhile...



Cocoa loves to run through the foyer... She's very fast...

She reminds me of leaping Deer... prancing and looking very adorable...

I'm so glad you were able to stop by and meet my new lil girl... she truly warms my heart... I've spent the past week in my glory, as she sleeps for hours on my lap... in the wee morning hours I bring her to my room and enjoy having her snuggle up with me until my Husband comes home and finds us tangled up in each other and the blankets! Though Cocoa has only been with me for a week, already I am so deeply in love, and cannot imagine my world without her in it...

Since my allergies surfaced and I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I can no longer eat Cocoa Puffs... Sadness... But, I did find some other ways to enjoy my favorite cereal, and I am adding these to my Odd Wish List for Santa...



As I said, earlier...
I'm-Cuckoo-In-Love-With-Cocoa-Puffs...

God bless...

Until another time... Pearl

Hi Pearl, Cocoa is a beautiful puppy! I just love her coloring! She looks so spunky and full of personality in the pics! I know you are tickled to finally have her with you! :)

I love the Christmas things you found in the attic! The Campbell soup kids are amazing! I've never seen a "Christmas Set." And I love the deer and vintage balls! What wonderful treasures to stumble upon! Did your MIL collect vintage stuff? Looks like she had some really neat stuff! Hope you will share pictures of your Christmas decorations when you get them up! ...especially if you use any of that vintage stuff! Can't wait to see it! I found Ashley an old vintage, plastic Santa snowglobe at the flea market this morning for 25 cents! She collects snow globes and it was in really good shape! Several people had the shiny brite ornaments last week, and I didn't get any. This week they were gone. I could just kick myself! LOL! Oh well...maybe next year! :)

Oh, and I LOVE your collection of crocks down your foyer! You have the neatest collections! Hope your decorating is coming along well! Big hugs, Rhonda :)
