Introducing the newest members of the Marlin household: Dash and Violet, brother and sister 12 week old whippets. If you have children, especially boys, you may be familiar with their human alter egos from The Incredibles. Dash is quite the troublemaker, while Violet is super sweet. We are in the process of potty training right now, and Maggie is showing them the ropes. They are actually doing really well in that department. They spend most of their time fighting with each other, snuggling with each other, playing with their toys, and searching for items to chew on. I think the cats have finally forgiven us for bringing home the puppies, but they are not necessarily pleased. We travelled 5.5 hours last weekend to pick them up from Pleasant Hope, Missouri, and it was well worth it! More to come...
