Meet Martha

I'm sure by now most of you have either read or heard me say, "I have a new puppy!" But just in case you haven't, I'd love to introduce you to her!

First, the quick story:

As many of you know, I have a crush on George Washington, and I often joke that I was Martha's rival in another life. I just find George and American history in general to be very fascinating… so when I stumbled on a litter of English Springer Spaniels that were all named after the Founding Fathers and their wives, well what could I do? Who could blame me for what happened next? And the funny thing was, I didn't even choose one for its name – I simply clicked on the one I thought was the cutest…


So we waited and waited until she was able to leave her mama, and then the day finally came when Sophie and I could drive to South Dakota to pick her up. What an exciting day that was! She was the tiniest, sweetest little thing, and Sophie and I were instantly smitten.

Bath time wasn't her favorite thing to experience…

And neither were car rides, although she's more comfortable with them now…

It's interesting to me how many different looks she has. Sometimes she looks like a different dog altogether, depending on what mood she's in!

When she could still fit in it, she loved guarding her toys by sleeping in her toybox.

Her registered name is Meadowland's First Lady Martha. Although she doesn't much act like a first lady most days.

Lots of you have asked how the Yorkie and Tasha are getting along with her.. The Yorkie is managing to maintain her alpha status when Martha is sleeping, and Tasha does a good job of mothering her. But mostly they live peacably with her, when she's not getting on their nerves. 🙂
