Savannah to Portland

Well here she is! Welcome Portland!
Yes our super secret name, that we came up with long before we even knew she was born, was Portland. We thought it was only fitting to have a geographical name in honor of our beloved Jorjah (whom I think was named for the state Georgia where Scott was born, but I could be wrong). We couldn't really come up with some crazy spelling though, so it is just Portland (but I say it "Portlinn!" because it is easier and cutie).

She is definitely a handful. Not that I didn't believe I'd be in for some work. But when Jeanne told brian "Your in for a long night," I really did think that it could possibly be that long! Turns out, you have to expel as much or more energy than the pup you are trying to tire out so she will sleep well. The second night was easier though- I caught onto the play hard before you sleep trick.

She looks innocent now, but five minutes later she stole my "thank you" notes and ran with them!

Smart girl! She knows her name and not to get on the bed! We are still working on "hurry-ups" but we are getting really close.

Proud daddy!

She rode on my lap most of the way home, we didn't have the heart to use the crate.

Oh my gosh...little Portland is so cute! I've had such fun reading your blog tonight. I have to remember to check in more often. I love your apartment and I'm so glad you are loving Georgia! Have fun with the puppy...and Brian of course! Love you all!

I don't think I've ever seen a puppy so cute! Looks like a lot of work though.
