I'm proud to announce the arrival into my parents' household- twins!
Tapyoca's Swiss Miss "Heidi" &
Tapyoca's Princess of Monaco "Gracie"
Born: 12-6-07
Age: 12 weeks
Current Weight: Heidi- 2 lbs. 12 oz., Gracie- 3 lbs. 6 oz

I drove with my parents yesterday to Memphis to pick up their new babies. We even got to meet their mama, who I don't think was sad to see them go to their new homes. It was amazing to see how much they have grown and changed since we saw them last. We played with them and their mom and got our questions answered from the breeder before we headed home. We did not get out of Memphis, though, before Gracie got car sick. Good thing we brought pee-pads with us! We are hoping that it was just the excitment of the day combined with a lot of stop and go traffic that made her sick.

They are absolutely hysterical. I can't believe that we got by being just a one dog household all of this time. I now "get" what everyone has been talking about in their multiple dog homes. It is constant entertainment watching them interact with each other. While Heidi is the smaller of the two, she will always end up with the toy. They really love being together and look for the other one when apart. Currently, they are in the fearless stage, and think nothing of crashing into the other one or doing summersaults in the name of play. It's like watching roller derby, or so I imagine.

I've been very surprised at how seamlessly they have settled into their new home. Maybe it's a puppy thing, but they have not been nervous or scared and have been having a ball exploring. That could be the terrier in them. They are very full of themselves. I haven't had a chance to edit some video, so that will have to come later. Check back soon. :)

How exciting! They are truly adorable! I hope they make your parents as happy as my furr-kids have made me. And, I've been trying to tell you for HOW long now that Teddy needs a friend?

They are SO.DARN.CUTE!!!

And, they were born on my daughter's birthday.

I hope they bring great joy to your entire family.

Thanks Patti! They are, and they will bring even more joy when they are potty trained and sleeping through the night. They are little piranhas right now. And, I know, you're right, as always. Maybe Teddy will get a little brother in a year or so.

Thanks Avalon! They are so much fun, but are a real handful right now.
