We need more participants to make it a secret swap.

This Weeks 'Doggie Spotlight' is on Dana's little furbaby Mercy:

"Mercy came to us in May 2005. We should have known that she wasn't going to be a "lap dog" when we picked her up at the breeders and witnessed her running around with all the children! Mercy has always been a very independent dog.
Mercy is very active, and enjoys running, not walking.
I ran a marathon in 2006 and Mercy was a training partner of mine, accompanying me on many runs. Believe it or not, this little 7 pounder has run over 10 miles at a time! (With water and treat breaks of course!)
Mercy and my husband even won a man-dog 5-k race.
Mercy snuggles on her own terms, usually when she's very tired. She does weird things with her food- takes a piece out, rolls around on it, then eats it. She sprints to our bedroom when the television turns off, no matter what time of day it is. She is afraid of smoke and hates swimming.
She tolerates the sweaters I knit her and usually doesn't steal my yarn. Usually.
She loves to shred tissues, new or used; roll around on dirty clothes; and hide bones, then pretend that she can't find them. We are beckoned to come to her rescue and help find it.
The adventures never stop with Mercy!
Now our furbaby has a human sibling, our 3 month old daughter.
I think they are going to be great friends!"

Every time I see Mercy I think what a dollbaby she is. So cute and photogenic.

From the sounds of it, you must be very busy with a new daughter and an active little dog. Makes me tired thinking about it.

She's precious - er, both of them. Mercy sounds like a lot of fun. My stepmom has a great Yorkie.

I love the last shot with your "girls". Mercy looks like a pip.

Mercy and baby look so cute together. My dogs were 3 and 4 years old when my son was born. They are true siblings.

2 adorable girls - how lucky can you get?

Mindy said...

I was going to use the word "adorable" too - it seems that is the consensus! She's a very active doggie!
