Meet Tovah Aliyah!

Blogging has been a little sparse lately. Much of it has to do with work, the holidays, major sleep deprivation, and the new puppy! It's been almost ten years since I've had a puppy, and I now remember how much work they are. It's one thing telling clients, but it's another thing to be reminded. However, it keeps me humble.

I admit I have a whole list of things I want to make sure to expose this puppy to. One of the main ones is a camera. So far she is not shy about it, and I know with time, the pictures will get better.

I mentioned a few posts ago that I found a name.

Meet Tovah Aliyah!



I liked both Hebrew names and didn't want to have to search forever for a name. Tovah means "good, pleasing." I thought I read "thankful" somewhere too. Aliyah means "ascending, rising to."

So in the week and a half since little 11 pound Tovah has been here, what she has been been up to?



playing at the kennel


chewing on tree limbs


chewing on bark


chewing on Daphne's collar


pretending to be a "big" dog


playing some more with Baxter


play bowing


chewing on Hank's leg
(notice she is underneath him)


exploring


waiting to ambush


chasing Hank


last but not least, sleeping,
something I wish she would do more of!

Tiptoe said...

Thanks for all the comments. Tovah is indeed a joy to have, and I look forward to all that is to come.

Arianna, wow form Malaysia! Thanks so much for the compliments.

MelissaS,I absolutely love the flow of the names. It just rolls off the tongue beautifully.

Kara, my other dog Baxter is a Boxer and is the oldest. I have other pics of him on here as well. I'll have to put up an archive sometime as they are all listed under "my dogs."

GBML, totally glad these pics made you smile after your terrifying ordeal yesterday. Hopefully, things are better today.

Elizabeth, good to see you again. :-) Yes, dogs are wonderful to have, and hopefully one day you will be able to too.

Sarah, thanks, yes, a lot of fun and work too!

Grey, yes, you are right about that. But there's a lot of reward to reap too. :-)
