Meet Tilly

This is 8 week old Tilly, short for Matilda. She is the newest addition to our family, a gift to our boys from John and myself for Christmas.She is the sweetest little thing, and is spoiled rotten already. She is a miniature dachshund, and should be about 9 lbs. at adulthood. John was so excited about getting her, he wouldn't shut up about it. I was really worried he would ruin the surprise for the boys, but they had no idea. They were shocked when they opened the box with her in there. Bodie thanked me about 20 times with hugs Christmas Day. He's been wanting a puppy for a while. And so far, so good as far as them being responsible for her. They are taking turns feeding her, and Tye has even taken out the newspapers she does her business on.
I will post pictures from Christmas morning later, but wanted to get these on here for now.

She is so cute! I want a puppy so bad, but I am afraid Kaitlyn wouldn't be very nice to it. Sigh, maybe next year! :c)
