In yesterday's newspaper, there were 4 different ads that read: SPRINGER SPANIEL PUPPIES FOR SALE

So the kids & I went and looked at some on Lake Norman. It was only about 45 minutes away so it wasn't too far. They were only 3 weeks old and so tiny. They were liver and white and I think if we got another puppy, that is the color I would want this time. The guy kept saying how they would be ready to go home at 4 weeks. 4 weeks? Is he crazy? We just looked at them, held them, they slept most of the time but decided these were NOT the ones for us. The mom and dad were both there and were not show quality dogs so I don't think they are what i am looking for. There was another batch of pups in Sparta, NC which is in the mountains, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We had an appt set up to go up today at lunch but I called the lady and told her we had changed our mind. Once again, we went to her website and she had the mom's photo on there and she was "ugly", more of a sport breed not the show breed so again, we just didn't go. We'll keep looking and in the meantime I will try and decide is this is what we really want!?

Emily went back to the oral surgeon today for her post-op. All is good. She has this syringe to rinse out her "holes" in the back of her mouth after she eats so nothing gets trapped in there.

I woke up with my lip all swollen. I have no idea if something bit me, if I ate something and had an allergic reaction or what?!!?

That's it and its only Monday. lol

The pictures are great. The garden looks like it's really thriving.
Sorry about the puppies. I can't believe they would let them go at 4 weeks! They are so young.
Glad to hear all is well with Emily...I am sure she is glad all that is behind her.
