it was about two weeks before Christmas when we brought home an 8-week old golden retriever pup and named him Solstice. he’s already grown so big since then! he’s been a ball of fluff and a joy. even though little Sol can be a handful at times, it’s all worth it because… LOOK AT THAT FACE. yeah, we can’t resist those sad eyes and his rolly polly clumsiness. we’ve been taking turns working at home and now have some time off for the holidays to be with him. he’s changing and learning everyday. i never had a dog growing up so this is my first time learning what dogs are really like to live with and have as companions. what an adventure this is!
also, he loves our walks in the woods and the snow! i hope we get more soon because it’s almost all melted away…
happy holidays – i hope they are merry and bright! ours is just full of puppy love. :)
