Our new baby... Milou Enni

Ok guys. Sorry for the last post that might have been misleading.

I did it purposefully, yes. BUT I DINT LIE. I didn't!

Facts first:
1. Yes, I'm in love.
2. Yes, we were expecting a new baby into our family.
3. And yes, it is surprise not just for us, but also for others.

But no, its not a new babygirl as many of you thought. Or babyboy - as some of you dared to wish out loud. Haha.

I think having a dog marks a new season in our life, or as good friend and a mother of four, Rebeka commented:

Never say never, but having a dog marks a different path you are taking, right?

We made that decision exactly year ago, actually. Noomi, our second had a tough season. Adapting into Finnish culture and finding swedish speaking friends wasnt easiest. All girls felt that they lost something as we moved from Estonia up north, and in a way they were right. Many friends were left "behind". And as we heard that Noomis old rabbit died, it just added an extra weight on her little shoulders.

This was a time i decided to lead my family by making a decison to have a dog (i had been against it for many years). I thought that this way we will always have an extra friend at home.

Maybe its too early to say if it was a bad, good or great decision, but here we are! Milou Enni is at our home! (Noomi had a right to choose a name for her)

She is a beagle - English hunting dog. Rather common in the area where we are living (lot of elk hunters here!). That breed is known for unique nose that can smell a target miles away. And they don't grow that big, have lot of energy and tend to be intelligent (read: not too difficult to train).

Well, we will see!

Last three nights I haven't slept much. She wakes up couple of times during a nighttime and wants to cuddle and bite. But yes, I'm still in love.

Here are some pictures.

I'm telling you, she is smart!
Thats me and a dog!
Our fourth, Mirtel, can pat her for hours! They both need it.
