Here she is!

Yep, here is our newest addition to the family!  Her name is Gigi and she is a rescued Bichon we adopted through the Michigan Bichon Frise Rescue.

 Glenn and Sandy Veltman are the folks who took Gigi in to find a new 'furever' home.  We had been talking with Glenn on obtaining a puppy or adopting.  Gigi just became available this past week so we jumped on the opportunity to adopt her.

She is just turned 3 this past May,weighs 10 lbs. and LOVES to give kisses!

 She is a sweetie and appears to be adjusting to our house easily!  In fact, as I'm typing this note, she is sleeping on the couch.  It seems that is her favorite place to lay.  She likes to sit with us on our chairs but after awhile she'll jump down and jump up onto the couch.  Fine with us and fine with Kalee!

Kalee is adjusting and wants to play with Gigi but so far Gigi is more interesting in just running and sniffing all over.  I'm sure it will take time for them to start their playing together.  Let's hope!!!

We've only taken her on 1/5 mile walks...seems to be enough for her right now but I'm sure she'll work up to Kalee's 1-1.5 miles in another month or two!    The video is the first night I walked them both on a dual lead!  They were so cute...ignore the noise and's hard to video tape while walking and holding dogs!


  1. Double the cuteness factor. So sweet. Lots of adjusting for Kalee I feel. Sunday Serenity...

  2. I was afraid for a moment there that something had happened to Kalee, so happy that isn't the case. Two dogs are twice as much fun as one, as long as they get along. That is great, so happy for you all!!

  3. They are so adorable! Congratulations.

  4. We always have two dogs...always. Dogs need fur friends and Gigi will fall right into playing with Kaylee pretty quickly, I'm sure. Everyone always says if they were a dog they would want to be ours. I'm sure that's the case at your house too!

  5. Love Gigi! What a sweet pair- but something happened to the video and an error message came up. Will try to view again later. I can imagine the balancing act filming and walking the pair. How wonderful you're giving Gigi a new, loving home. Hope Kaylee and Gigi can play and tire each other out instead of you!

  6. Well, now you have two sweeties! How adorable.
