Ten on Ten: Ten. Ten. Twelve.

This Ten on Ten introduces a new member of our family. We got a new puppy over the weekend. Not sure how that happened. My family must have slipped something into my Diet Coke. Because we've been there. Done that. Before. And it didn't end well.

I think I was lulled into it by a gorgeous four hour drive into the country. And the prospect of a new model. Luckily, he's quite photogenic. And at 8 weeks, he already sits and poses for the camera. Who needs the ballerinas? When I've got Buster Brown now.

He's also quite the little helper too. This morning he helped me...

make the ballerinas' lunches.


clean up the cobwebs around here...

do the laundry...



dead head the mums in the garden ...

make some lunch...

and do the dishes.

When the ballerinas got home, there was homework to do...

followed by a little training session with his big sister...

Then it was off to see one of his relatives....

find some jeans to fit a skinny tween...

and finally... a little late night toy shopping.

Yes. It was a busy day. For a little pup. And an old mom.

Check out what everyone else was up to today here.

I think it's hilarious that we both got dogs...it sounds like you're as thrilled about it as I am ;) I had to take one for the team...

Is your daughter face-timing for homework? If so, that's genius!!! Oh, technology...I remember the corded, rotary-dial phone...

I'm in love with your new pup. He is adorable! I'm almost ready to get a new dog, but I'm just not quite there yet. Lots of work, but lots of fun too! Great pictures, and the one of the mums is just fantastic. Such a neat angle and perspective. Hope you are well sweet friend. xo

Oh boy. I would have been sucked in by sweet Buster Brown too. Congrats on your family's new addition! Love your ten on ten posts. I started mine and somehow never made it past homework time. Next month maybe.

I love how your pictures capture a day I can relate to but so artistically. Love your photography!

What a cute pup! I was just telling a friend that growing up with a pet gives kids that unconditional love they really need (not that we don't give it, but dogs give it so readily). Enjoy that sweet pup.
