My New Puppy, Kieran


Once upon a time there was a girl (me) who wanted a puppy.

She searched high and low (but mostly on the internet) for the perfect puppy for her little family.

And she found a small Beagle-Corgi-Something mix and fell in love with him. She named him Kieran which means “little dark one.”


He loved to sleep.


And sleep…


And sleep.


He had a lot of toys.


But it was never enough. He would try to steal sticks and things from bigger dogs.


He would run fast outside.


Or just sit.



He never wanted to be left alone so he would sleep in her closet when she was getting ready for the day.


He would even sleep under her computer chair while she was working.


And that’s the story of Kieran, the little black puppy.

Beagle-Corgi Puppies

Today my husband and I are doing something that we have never done in our almost four years of marriage. We are getting a puppy! Until this month, we have always lived in apartments (ones that didn’t allow pets). And now we have our own home and are ready to move into the world of pet ownership! I certainly will be uploading puppy pictures within the week!

In between work and studying I found a little bit of time to paint. Here is my latest painting that I am working on. It is an acrylic painting of my sister’s Arabian horse named Dana Delight.
