Tessa’s Window

June 10th, 2009


Although I have a couple of cards to share, I haven’t photographed them yet, so I thought I’d just pop by for a quick Tessa post.  Sorry I just can’t help myself.  As she feels more at home here, she does more cute and/or funny little things, like deciding her favorite place to sleep is up on the back of the couch like a cat.  And she discovered that she likes to look out our front window.  Since we live on a pretty busy street I generally always keep the drapes closed, but I put a couple of pillows in the window with the curtians parted just enough for her to look out.  The window is a bowed window and it goes almost all the way to the floor.  So in these pictures she’s just sitting on two throw pillows and of course she has her favorite toy “Smiley Dog”.


It was hard to catch her for these pictures, because as soon as she saw me she’d jump off the pillows and come to me.  LOL!

Last Friday we tried our first *play date*.  A friend from work brought her little dog, Sophie, over.  Even though Sophie is quite small, at 11 pounds she is more than twice as big as my little 4.5 pound Tessa.  They didn’t exactly play, but maybe they will if we try it again.  Here’s a photo of me that day holding Tessa in our backyard.  Um…am I grinning from ear to ear or what?


Looking forward to  teaching my SU class tomorrow afternoon and then again Friday night.  I’ll try to get back here tomorrow with at least one of my class cards.  In the meantime, thanks for indulging the new dog-mom.  *cheesy grin*  I seriously just can’t help it!  I promise to do more stamping soon!  Hang in there with me.  *chuckle*

    You are cracking me up! Never in a million years would I have guessed you to become a dog maniac… especially a little tiny dog. Maybe an outdoor hunting 4 wheeling adventure dog for Curt, but a little tiny dog….. naaaah. Glad you are having so much fun! 🙂

    I love all the Tessa updates, and yeah you might have to start frisking your class attendees as they leave especially if they carry big purses, Tessa is adorable, I know my little Toby has had a few of my class girls threaten to take him home.

    Jami, My little toy poodle guarded the house from the back of the couch looking out the front window every day of her 14 years. She would bark at cars and trucks going by and if Mr Brown stopped she would go hysterical. She loved to sleep on the couch never really allowed either of my cats to have that privilege. You look so sweet and happy with your sweet Tessa.

    These are the sweetest pictures, especially of you and Tessa together. It makes me a little misty-eyed to be watching you discover the unique happiness of “dog love.” Keep the photos coming! Linda
