AWOL

I've been AWOL - or in my case AWOLAMG... Absent Without Looking At My Blog. I have an excuse and it really is a good one. Here she is:

This is the ADORABLE DORA, a labrador-whippet cross (also known as a whippador!)

She looks a bit of a loon in the bottom picture here with a piece of grass or something hanging out of her mouth, looking like a smile.

She's now ten weeks old (we had her at only 6) and has been consuming all my free time. She doesn't think it necessary for me to go on my laptop or even do any writing - she always has other ideas! My hands are raw from washing them and I'm exhausted, but I wouldn't swap her for anything.

I will get back to the blogging and writing eventually, but for now I'm just enjoying my baby-with- razor-sharp-teeth-and-no-nappy.

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Linda .. Thanks for coming over via Annalisa's blog - just helps know where people turn up from!

I can see why you've been rather busy and don't they just have sharp teeth ..

Looking forward to see you more you once you're back blogging and writing a little teensie bit!

Happy Easter in the meantime - Hilary

What an adorable reason to be absent.

Yes darling, but stop hogging the puppy.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

What an adorable reason to take a break!

Cherie Reich said...

Aww, she looks adorable! And quite a good excuse for not being around much. :)

Rebecca Bradley said...

Dora is gorgeous! And a perfect excuse :)

Aw congrats on Dora!! She's a cutie.
They really do suck up a lot of time. I have a labradoodle and he used to sleep in my lap when he was just a pup and I was on my computer.
And then .... oh boy. Prepare yourself for more madness, at the highest level. lol
Hyper is an understatement. But I will tell you that it only lasts about 2 years. Then they become the best most amazing buddies you can imagine. :)

The joys of a puppy. They truly are joys even when hardships. Enjoy. Maria from Delight Directed Living

That's as good of an excuse as any for staying offline. Dogs = love. :))

Lexa Cain said...

Those pics totally manipulate us into going "Awwww" and forgiving you for anything. Well played. ;)

Joy Ciaffoni said...

Isn't that kind of thing what life's all about? No worries on the blogging! You are enjoying other interactions at the moment. : )

John Carcosa said...

No wonder you're having difficulties writing. I would be too around that much cuteness.

Vikki T said...

She is gorgeous though ;)

Just wanted to say thank you for your support during the A-Z Challenge honey xx
