This is our new puppy Isabel, or "Izzy" for short. I picked her up yesterday and absolutely fell in love with her the minute I saw her. She is so cute and spunky and she is already very attached to me. If I put her down either in the yard or the house, she just follows me around.
Zach showed his affection for Izzy right away. When I showed her to him he leaned his head over, put his cheek up to hers and gave her a little hug. Since then, every time I let him get close enough, he tries to either kiss or hug her. He doesn’t quite understand how fragile she is though or how strong he is compared to the tiny puppy.
I really hated leaving her at home this morning, but I know she’ll be fine. She’s not very fond of her kennel. She would much rather be snuggling up in someone’s lap. When I left I could hear her whining in the other room. It was almost as bad as the first day I left Zach at day care, but not quite.
Thanks for all of the name suggestions I received! Isabel popped into my head just before I left to go pick her up and as soon as I saw her I knew it was the right name.
