Absent Much?

Luckily my absent-ness has a good excuse. Two days before Thanksgiving, I decided to have my appendix out... Well, not like you can really decide a thing like that. It was great. I sat on the couch for two weeks straight, watched lots of movies and tv, didn't really eat anything, and slept. Hence why I had no Thanksgiving or any other kind of posting going on. Sitting at the computer was kind of rough. (who knew, right?)

Anyways, I've been wanting to post about a new special member of our family for about a month now. Many of you know our baby Pixie joined our Kitty in animal heaven in August. Our house has been so empty and lonely until we just couldn't take it any more.

So we ventured to the animal shelter, and who did we find that stole our hearts???

This beauty right here...

She is the SWEETEST dog in the world, and INCREDIBLY well behaved! We have no idea why she was in the shelter. Breaks my heart. But now she has a new loving forever home with us! And yes, we LOVE her. Even my dad who (suprisingly) was the one saying no to getting another animal. But we see the way he acts with her and how he LOVES to take her on walks everyday after work... Can't fool us dad!

We think she's a Husky- Australian Shephard mix and she's about 5 yrs old. Great for our family. She's gone through quite the name change(s) since we got her. She started out as Skyla then to Tally, Sasha and now Sienna. I still don't know what to call her... She comes to anything so it hasn't been a problem. I just feel bad for her. Haha!

Here is her corner. I painted it and added a chandelier (let me just say that took me a long time to figure out the silhouette machine) to make it nice and cozy. Eventually I'll do more to it. But I had surgery... give me a break... haha!

She's such a beautiful dog, although she's not much of a picture taker. She likes to turn away every time I aim the camera at her- mostly cause she just wants some lovin instead. Sheesh. That's going to have to change... haha!

And here's her little bed and toy area. She loves to hide her toys from us. If you try to play with her toys with her she'll just take it and hide it from you. So funny!

I have more to updates coming soon. :)
