Puppy Love

She was older, wiser-- she'd been around the block... many, many times I might add.
He was young.  Innocent.  In an unfamiliar, new place.

For several days, the tension in the air could have been cut with a knife.  They gingerly danced around each other, neither wanting to make the first move.

He tried to get close to her; she turned away, pretending not to notice him.

When he wasn't looking, she'd watch him longingly from across the room.

And in a moment of weakness, as she lightly dozed off on the lounge (that's Aussie for couch), her gorgeous blonde curls shining in the light...

he could resist her no more.  And she could feel his eyes piercing her, like the intense Australian sun on summer day.

And he couldn't stop staring, and he knew what he needed to do.

So he played hard to get, because he didn't want to seem too eager...

And he spent some time with the guys, trying to play it cool, ya know-- like it's all about bromance and stuff.

But in the end, a surprise visit (from the gardener, to re-sod the hole someone dug) brought them together-- at the window to gawk.

And that night the deal was sealed...

And so began a love that will last them their lifetimes.

Welcome to the family Baby Sam, we are so happy to have you here you little hunk of chocolate Labradoodle love.
