I've been meaning to put pictures of my new puppy on here for a couple days now.  She is my birthday present!  Her name is Sam; I named her after Samantha Sheridan!  I've been calling her Sammie or Samster (because she's basically just a big hamster). 

She is a 9 week old Cavachon, which is a mix of a King Charles Cavalier and a Bichon Frise. 

She is adorable!!! And a pretty darn good puppy as well.  She's playful, smart, quiet and doing very well with house training.  The main issue I'm trying to curb is her nippiness.  She'll bite at my pant legs as I'm walking, my sleeves when I'm on the floor playing with her .... and of course, fingers, hair and ear lobes when we cuddle.  But she's learning that that is not nice .... a little tap or push with my fingers and she backs off as if she's thinking "Oh right .... she doesn't like that .... oops!".

Here she is:

I haven't been able to get a really good picture of her yet .... the only time she is still is when she's sleeping ... so all the pictures I have so far look like this:

Or this:

Or awake for a moment during a napping session:

She doesn't always look so crazy .... I promise.

My cat Hannah is adjusting to Sam pretty well.  I think because Sam is so small Hannah doesn't feel threatened at all.  Here they are from the other night:

I'm pretty sure Hannah thinks the puppy is ridiculous.  : )
