New Addition

Please welcome to the family our newest edition.  She's a beautiful, bouncing, baby puppy.  Her name is Grace and we found her at the Dallas Animal Shelter.  Now I know many of you are asking yourselves right now, "what would the Brooks' need with a new dog, and a puppy nonetheless" or maybe you are thinking "the Brooks' need a puppy like they need a hole in their head"  Well, you are right.  I'm really not sure what we were thinking.  Perhaps we thought, "wow, our life is too easy.  We need to add some spice, how about a new dog."  Not sure but I am sure we went temporarily insane.  Don't get me wrong, she is cute as a button, but she is the equivalent of having a new born baby.  We are getting up in the middle of the night to take her potty, you have to watch her 24/7.  And I mean 24/7 because the one second that you turn your head, she is either peeing, pooping or chewing something up. She fights with her human sister Olivia ALL the time.  Also, unbeknownst to her, she has the sharpest baby teeth which she is always trying to use to pierce your ears, face or any body part.  She is incapable of cuddling at this point because anytime you look at her she just wants to wrestle.  She is getting better, though.  She now knows her name (Grace, Gracie, Baby Grace, Bratty Face etc), potty training is coming along, and she is finally started to learn to play a little more gentle.  Don't worry Gracie - we are not giving up on you.  We will whip her into shape and she will be an amazing dog and companion for the girls. . . . . . someday.

And now for my public service announcement.  Everyone listen.  Puppies are cute y'all, but don't do it!  Don't get one!  You may as well have another baby! Just kidding.  I guess the one perk is that I don't have to pay day care on this little one.
