My Heart Just Melts


Hannah has that effect on me.  Every time I look at her I just want to eat her up and hug her and squeeze her and kiss her.  She is by far the cutest most adorable, cuddly little puppy I've ever seen.  Even with a bad haircut.  Yes, Hannah had a bit of a disaster this past weekend.  



You see, this time last week, Hannah looked like this.  We told Sarah to groom Hannah.  Her hair was getting long and she needed to get the knots out of her fur.



I mean really now - her hair had gotten so long the poor thing couldn't see unless we tied some hair up in a bow like a punk rocker.  



She was not happy, but she put up with Sarah's bows just the same.



Hannah's fur is so soft that it gets knots very easily.  So last weekend, Sarah gave Hannah a bath and while we weren't looking ...



Sarah did this.  I wanted to cry.  But not before I gave Hannah a big cuddle hug and a knoogy rub on the top of her head - and chewed Sarah out for making Hannah look like she was some homeless dog.



I'm not so sure that Hannah quite understands exactly what happened to her.  But I do know that her potty visits outside are a lot shorter - because she is freezin' her fanny off!



There have been days this week that I have missed this face.



But, no matter how bad the haircut ...



I still think Hannah is the most adorable, cuddly, lickity split I've ever seen.  And in honor of her cuteness, and because today is day 4 of our Christmas season ...



I thought you might like to curl up in your favorite chair with your own little puppy dog, and read - with the World's Most Advanced eBook Reader - the Nook.  It's a really great little device, especially if your eyes aren't as good as they used to be - like mine.



You'll be able to read over a million books, newspapers, and magazines, and download everything wirelessly in a snap.  Better yet, you can take it with you anywhere.  So while you are waiting for your hubby to finish his Christmas shopping while you unwind in Starbucks with your favorite cup of coffee, you can read on your Nook.  Of course, you won't want it to get all scratched up, so ...



I thought you might also like this handy Nook cover by Kate Spade.



And I really like the front cover too.  But, be sure to keep it up off the floor or little paws and jaws from little lickity splits like Hannah might chew on it.

That's it!
