Dog Days

So, I have to admit I was pretty terrified of getting this dog. And yet I wanted her so badly. I just couldn't imagine more chaos and mess in my house. So far it's very enjoyable. I'm aware that it's still prob'ly the honeymoon phase, but she's loving it here...and we're loving having her.
The only problem...she smells like a dog!? What do you do about a dog that smells like a dog? LOL I heard about some shampoo that smells of lavendar and mint! The person that commented on it said it made them smell so yummy! I might just be trying that for her next bath.
For those who asked, her name is Daphne. She is a 3 year old yellow labrador retriever. She is exactly what I wanted and some friends needed to get out of the dog business...perfect! She is spayed, and up to date on everything. How cool is that? (Thank you Leah!)
So that's my update! Life with our dog is going pretty great so far.

Oh, one question for those who have inside dogs: How do you minimize the water all over the kitchen? LOL Every time she takes a (big sloppy drink) which is often, we have a trail of water allllllll over the kitchen! Any tips for that issue??

Oh! I love your new blog theme/layout. Very pretty!

As for the dogs (I have two) we didn't have a problem with them shaking. We had a problem with them walking away from the bowl with water still in their mouths! PIGS!! We just moved the bowls outside. We had a screened in porch at the time, but even now that the screen part is gone, we still have them eat and drink outside. :)

I have a plastic mat under Pheobe's water helps a little bit ;) I find myself constantly wiping up water...maybe a job Miss Haley would enjoy?
