Learning about our Ninja Shoe

We've had our little Ninja Shoe for about 10 days now and he is turning out to be the sweetest little creature.  He and Mocha play non-stop.  Mocha even brings Shoe toys to wrestle over!  I'll put some videos on YouTube as soon as I can figure out what the email is for the account.... /sigh

The two puppies run around and wrestle like crazy till they can't go anymore.  Then, our home looks something like this:

Anyway, Mocha is 1 year old and about 12 lbs.  Shoe is 4 months old and 9 lbs!  He's going to be gigantic.  Right now they're both sitting by the window watching people come in and out the building.

Shoe has so many endearing qualities.  For one, his little tail wags constantly.  Another is the little white streak he has on his chin.  But I think my favorite is the cuddling.  He just loves to be petted.

Yesterday he was snoring on my lap:

In other news, I've been getting ready for my first craft fair next weekend.  It's in St. Louis at the Lindbergh High School.  I hope w/all my heart that it goes well.  

Here are some of the collars I'm working on:

I think since it's been so warm I'll have more luck w/collars than sweaters, but you never know!

I've also updated the Facebook page for Inspired by Mocha.  People can buy straight through FB!  I didn't know you could do that lol.  For someone in their mid-20's, I'm pretty slow with technology and social media.  Here's our facebook page:

And one final update:  We are officially moving from Kirksville, MO to Cuyahoga Falls, OH on May 30 & 31!  Soooo excited!  And then getting married June 9th!  Double Excited! :)

New new new!

So, this past week has been full of changes for us!  First, we got a Prius!  Super excited, it's a really nice car and worked out well for us financially.

Second, I got Mocha a bed to sleep on and we took away the crate.  He hated that crate, even though we trained him in it and he used to sleep in it and be in it all day.  Hate is too kind a word.  He loathed that crate, or at least being locked up in it.

It's taken a little bit of work to keep Mocha from chewing on, digging in, and humping his new bed, but he seems to really enjoy it.  This is a photo of him I just took.  He's listening to some Brahms very intently :)

We are also getting a new addition to our family!  Well, here's a picture :)

He's such a precious little thing.  A 4 month old Shih-Poo, just like Mocha.  We're going to call him Shoe.  We took Mocha to meet him and they hit it off right away.  Super sweet little guy doesn't nip at all and wasn't yappy either.  We get to pick him up on Tuesday and I'm pretty sure Shoe and Mocha are going to be besties.  Or at least I super hope they will!  Here's a photo of Mocha next to Shoe:

As you can see, Shoe is black with a pretty white stripe down his chest.  He also has little white tufts at the tips of his paws.  I can't even handle how cute they are together.  We think Shoe will get pretty big.  He's 4 months old and almost as big as Mocha already, who's 1 year old.
