Ah…. Sookie

Here’s our new beautiful girl. We agreed on Sookie (a character from Gilmore Girls and also a line in an old Dwight Yokum song). She’s very slowly warming up to us and has yet to venture past the family room and breakfast nook. She seems particularly fond of being under the table. Could be the crumbs, I suppose…

And this would be Taylor in his new room:

    Loving the “puppy” in the cage — I need to get me one of those for “my” pet!!!!As for Sookie — oh my gosh — so cute, so gorgeous…I want one!!! And the name…I’m loving that — I adored Sookie on GG — she had so much spunk, spirit and life — never mind those dimples.Do you think there’s room in there for Sookie AND Taylor?!?! LOL!!

    Sooooooo Cute!!!!!Both parties I might add :).I am positive that Sookie is going to have a lot of fun in your family.I am looking forward to many Sookie stories on the blog site.Congrat Jen and family now consisting of 3 siblings 🙂

    One day we didn’t have a dog. The next day we did. No discussion. No planning. Have I mentioned I’m a planner and list maker? Long story short some 18 months later I can’t imagine life without our Emily.The boys think she’s their dog. Pffft! Shows ya what they know.The little dickens worm their way into our lives and hearts before we know what hit us.Sookie is one lucky little girl doggie I’m thinking. P.S. Shmoo needs a room like Taylor’s. Good idea. 🙂

    Love the name “Sookie”. That sounds like something you’ll call it when you go to scratch it behind the ears. Very cute dog.I need to get one of those cages for my youngest, er, dog, lol.

    I like the room for Taylor, wish I had one for my boys! Did you lock it with a padlock!! Sookie is ADORABLE! You will enjoy her to no end, do you have a fenced area for her outside? Sookie, Sookie was also a Steppenwolf song. I probably had the record at one time or another (my how old am I!!). Sookie, Sookie, Sookie Sue!

    She is adorable!! She looks so fluffy and soft. I could use one of those “new rooms” once in awhile.

  7. Barbara on March 29, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    OK so can I borrow Taylor’s room? How many people can it hold? LOL

  8. KATE on March 29, 2008 at 9:34 pm

    What a beautiful puppy! She’s adorable. The picture of Taylor made me laugh! So that’s what you do with teenage boys! Thanks for the tip. 😉

  16. CindyS on March 31, 2008 at 3:32 am

    Too Cute!! Is Sookie a mix or a breed? She has the look of a German Shepherd but with something else. She’s gorgeous!Poor Taylor. I guess that’s another way to look at the saying ‘he’s in the dog house’ ;)CIndyS

  17. Angry Woman on March 31, 2008 at 9:11 am

    Sookie is soooo cute!!!! How old is she? And that is some big crate if Taylor can fit in it.

  18. Lynilu on March 31, 2008 at 10:55 am

    Sookie is an adorable little one! What a precious face! I predict many years of happy, melted hearts in your home!But that puppy in the crate … I don’t know about keeping that one. Looks like trouble to me!! LOL!!

  19. The Daily "B" on March 31, 2008 at 12:38 pm

    She’s so cute! I love her name, Sookie rocks! Puppy Sookie and Gilmore Sookie. =)

  20. Gretchen on March 31, 2008 at 12:55 pm

    Oh, doesn’t little Sookie just warm your heart!?!!! What a sweetie pie. Personally, I think you should get Katie a crate, too, for when she wants to start dating. ;)xxxooogretchen

  21. Tanya on March 31, 2008 at 2:12 pm

    Oh she is adorable.

  22. Tanya on March 31, 2008 at 2:12 pm

    Oh she is adorable.

  23. Lynilu on March 31, 2008 at 5:22 pm

  24. KT on March 31, 2008 at 5:51 pm

    Congratulations on your new little bundle! She is adorable. Looking forward to more Sookie stories and pics! Katie

    I think we live the exact same life. Except we did not get the dog that we all fell in love with. And I am sad about it. Especially reading that you DID get a dog, which probably means we should have gotten ours too. (If you follow any of my logic, then it definitely means we were meant to get the dog). This is a true story…when I was little I begged my parents to buy me a cage so I could sleep all cozy in it. We did not have a dog and my parents refused.

  27. Katybug on March 31, 2008 at 8:50 pm

    I get a dog, then you get a dog? (And a BEAUTIFUL one at that!) Does that mean since you got Dee’s new book that I get one too??? 😉 Love Taylor’s new digs! One of Little Bit’s friends did the same thing with our Chester’s crate. Too funny!

  28. Eileen on March 31, 2008 at 11:46 pm

    I had a feeling you would be giving in soon! What a beautiful Sookie. Such a cutie. She will bring your family so much love and happiness, promise.XOXOX

  29. Casdok on April 1, 2008 at 2:26 am

    Love your new puppy!!

  30. Travis Erwin on April 1, 2008 at 6:07 pm

    Cute puppy and crazy kid. Show that one when he brings a girl home.

  31. Stacy~ on April 2, 2008 at 6:44 am

    Sookie is just adorable! Makes me want a dog so badly.

  32. Colorado Writer on April 10, 2008 at 3:44 pm

    The puppy is adorable. Wonder if I can get one of those cages for my 3 year old. Just kidding.
