Tomorrow is the BIG day!

Only one more sleep until Ollie comes home!

I know it’s small but here is the last update photo that I received this morning from the breeder.  She is holding the litter of puppies for the last time before they all go to live in their respective forever homes.

Ollie is on the far left.

Christine and Litter

By this time tomorrow, our family will be complete once again.

How exciting Kaaren,

I'm sure you are looking forward to your new challenges of aquainting Ollie with your home and family members, but what a joy he will bring to your family.

Waiting for a family picture!

So exciting!! We'll be expecting to see lots of pics. THat is, when you can tear yourself away from him to get to the computer.

Chris said...

Oh my gosh.....can't wait to see you holding Ollie!

Karen ~ Briarside Lane said...

Oh, Kaaren... how could you just choose one?
If my hubby hadn't gotten "Winston the bark-a-lounger," I would have most certainly gotten two Bichons as I loved my Cassie so much.

Jeanne said...

He is so cute! I'm sure you'll have lots of fun posts about him soon.

Mary said...

That's some Litter. Glad you are getting a new Puppy. I can't have any pets other than the ones on my quilts because hubby is allergic.

Angela said...

I am so happy for you. We have wanted a westie for a long time. They are so high in cost here, not in the budget. Glad you get one, puppy breathe is theraputic we say. :o)

Nanette Merrill said...

Oh my gosh, the puppy is so cute. I'm so happy for you.

I can imagine how excited you are. Ollie sure is a cutie.

Merilyn said...

What a wonderful bundle of love those puppies are!!! How exciting Kaaren......

Melanie said...

Hallelujah! Pups fix just about everything....

Gmama Jane said...

You and Mr. PQ have earned some well deserved JOy and I think Ollie is the perfect little bundle of Joy to make your life whole again. My Border Collie of 14 yrs. Hank, is hanging on one day at a time and My little chihuahua of 14 yrs. ran away in the last Thunder Storm 2 weeks ago. I will soon be down to 2 dogs. Pets bring so much love.
Blessings
Gmama Jane

Janet said...

The breeder is going to shed a tear I bet but you'll be over the moon. I'm so thrilled for you and Mr PQ

Absolutely cute little guy that will fit in wonderfully well. I believe I counted 7 puppies. Did one small dog have that many pups. That's a lot!
Take care; be safe in your travel!

JLL24 said...

OMG he is just so, so cute. What a great bundle of joy to get. Please send a pic of the two of you soon. Love puppies, all that goes along with them. We are looking for one ourselves. Ollie is really just to cute for words, isn't he?

SewCalGal said...

Such sweet news. I sure hope you'll welcome home Ollie with an introduction to the quilting world by entering the Pets on Quilts Show, hosted by Lilypad Quilting. This fun event is going on 8/1 - 8/10, so plenty of time to enter.
