The story of Lemon

I have told you about one Lemon before. But we have had other Lemons in our life. Molly had a friend Lemon who also lived down the road and we would hear about the wonderful things she could do as well. Most recently Lars has had a friend Lemon come play with him.
 His friend is a boy and has spent many nights at our house sleeping on the chair in Lars' room. There have also been times that I stepped on him because I did not see him in the hallway. He and Lars often play with swards and take turns being the bad guy. He eats meals with us a lot. He always brings his own dishes and his own food though he eats the same thing we are having, unless it is something Lars does not like and then Lemon will have what Lars wishes he was having.
 Well, now we have a puppy and we feel that since we have always had  a Lemon around anyway now we can see her. Heidi wasn't sure it was a romantic enough name for her but the rest of us are very comfortable with it.
 This Lemon has been very sweet all except at 3:30 this morning she felt the need to cry loudly about her lonely little bed.
 I'm really finding it hard to believe I have invited a dog to live IN my house, shedding hair and all that comes with being a puppy. I have never been found of animal hair in a house.
 I probably will survive and even enjoy her company. My kids are loving her so much which is one big reason we wanted a dog. I hope she can open the door to animals for them. I really pitied their fear.

It does seem that Lemon IS the proper name for this little puppy.....As to having a dog "IN" the house I do question that decision but I am sure you will adapt and enjoy your new little charge.....at least most of the time!........I once had a friend named Lemon Lawry and he was real and nice and funny so I do have good thoughts about the name Lemon.

Lemon is adorable! She looks like she will be lots of fun. I like your stories too. I didn't know that Lars and Molly's Friends names were Lemon also.

I was wondering what these pups looked like. Do you have a ticking clock that you could put in her bed at night? It may help her sleep and not whine.

What kind of dog is Lemon? Looks like a blue heeler, to Jason and me but looks can be deceiving. Ours doesn't look like a Jack Russell but come to find out he is what the first Jack Russell breed looked like. His parents look like the modern day Jack Russell so it's amazing to me how his looks pulled through from generations back. Anyway, you have tons of fun with him. I kicked all my dogs outside because the hair problem was really disturbing me. On really cold nights I'll still let them in to sleep in my back bathroom. Can't help but feel sorry for them.

It will be nice to meet her. I can't wait to get back home to you though.

Michelle, her mother is mostly Jack Russell and she was an adopted stray after she was already pregnant. So they have no idea what the father is like. All the puppies had the Jack russell look but then turned dark like Lemon is, or darker.
