Our friend, Jason, brought over his new “baby” the other day and I couldn’t resist snapping some pics of her when she started to get sleepy.
Meet Tootsie…

She’s a “dorkie” (dachshund/yorkie) and our pooch, Max, is officially in love. The mere mention of her name has him racing to front door at an incredible rate of speed these days.

The first time Jason brought her over, they chased each other around for a good 45 minutes before she finally konked out on one of the quilts I blogged about yesterday

Aaaaahhhh! That pic kills me! I can almost smell her sweet little head right through the screen!

Here’s a little video of her waking up…

And because we thought this pic of her yawning (no, it’s not photoshopped) was absolutely hilarious

…we thought we’d throw a “Lettered Cottage Caption Contest” this week!

If you’d like to enter, submit your photo caption ideas (for the yawn-y photo above) in the comments section below and we’ll choose a winner on Thursday (July 14th) at noon (Central Time). The prize…a new puppy, of course!

I kid.

How about a $50 Lettered Cottage Visa Gift Card…

You come up with the winning caption, and we’ll order ya one from!

PS- Speaking of precious new pooches, check out David Bromstad’s new baby, “Miss Lady Godiva Bonbon”…

…and Beth’s,”Eowyn”…

…and Sarah’s, “Peanut”…



Ooh! And the winner of the $100 Design Star American Express Gift Card is….

Carrie from The Corson Cottage!

Congratulations Carrie! I’ll be in touch with you via email today!
