So many of you have been asking about Paycee, so I thought I would let you know how she is doing. Unfortunately, my camera is not working right now so I can not share any new pictures with you. I got the above picture off of the website that we found Paycee on.
Paycee weighs a little over 5lbs. She is doing really well. She is a bundle of love and energy. She loves to chew. Fortunately, we have plenty of toys for her to chew on. Everyone is adjusting nicely. Paycee and Peyton have become good friends. She follows him around and watches his every move. Peyton is being so gentle with her! When they play he is careful not to hurt her. Paycee loves to sneak up on Peyton and bite him on his bottom. She also loves to chew on his legs and ears. Peyton takes all of this in stride and never gets aggrivated with her.
Parker is a little indifferent to Paycee. She was like this when we got Peyton and soon warmed up to him, so hopefully she will warm up to Paycee too. They all love to go out in the backyard and run around. Anything to burn Paycee's energy is a good thing!
Paycee is eating really well, and the potty training is going pretty well too. I had forgotten how closely puppies have to be watched. We take her out many, many times during the day. Hopefully she will be as easy to train as Parker and Peyton were.
During the day and at night she stays in her crate. She doesn't cry at night any more. When we get home from school she is always happy to see us and wags her little tail with all her might.
She has already stolen our hearts and has been a wonderful edition to our little family. There is nothing like a Miniature Schnauzer!
I do want to apologize for not being able to visit some of your blogs as often as I would like. The last two months of school are very busy and I don't seem to have as much time as I did before. When school gets out on June 1st, I will have more time to visit your blogs regularly.
I hope all of you had a terrific Thursday and that you are getting a chance to relax and do something you enjoy tonight. Never forget how important you are, and never stop trying to make this world a better place.

Where Did I Get My Door Box?
I receive so many comments asking me where I got my door box. So I thought I would answer the question here in my sidebar. I got my door box at The Olde Homestead in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. The lady who makes the door boxes is Tracie Hamler. She and her husband make them. They are wonderful door boxes and you will be very pleased with the quality. You can visit Tracie's website by clicking the picture of my door box.

I love this picture! All eyes are on Peyton! This is how we all feel. We always say, "There is something special about Peyton."
Here are a few little facts about me. Hopefully in time you will get to know me even better!
