We decided on Uma, a Hindu goddess, as the name for our new puppy. She’s quite a handful, running around and enjoying life at the ranch.

She fit in the cat bed we got for Milky Way for a day and a half, but she already is a little big. She’s becoming more rambunctious and active today than the previous days, though she fell asleep after Kendall wore her out a bit.

She slept a lot early on, and was a little nervous around everyone, but she’s warmed up fast.

Uma Christmas morning

Yesterday she was outside with us a bit, wearing Junior’s old coat. She doesn’t love the cold, and she is quick to use the bathroom when we take her out at night. As with most young animals, she sleeps a lot, but it’s short stretches, with stretches of activity. They don’t always correspond to our sleep schedule, so Tia and I are up at night sometimes taking her outside, or playing with her until she falls asleep again.

As you can see, she’s a little dog. That’s my slipper, and as she’s barely big enough to drag it around. She fits under our bed, under the tables, though I’m sure that won’t last long.
