Shaley Karns

Ok, ok...We couldn't wait - she was able to come home tonight! She's sooooo cute!
And, as you can tell, we decided on the name Shaley (pronounced
SHAY-LEE w/ a long A). The place we got her was on Shale Rd., so, there we are.



Shaley & Valentine, checking each other out. So far so good, except for Shaley trying to nip at Vallie's legs...Val just acts like she's scared of her.


Shaley & Brock. The kids WILL NOT leave the poor puppy alone! They want to pick her up and hold her costantly!


Shaley's 1st bath. She stunk bad - and still does. She'll have to have another bath tomorrow to try and get that Kennel smell off of her.



She's already found things to chew on! Ok, we've got several chew toys already. If anyone wants to give a "puppy shower" (ha)...buy more chew toys!


Shawn says Shaley looks like she's smiling here. Happy to be home at last!

Note the key word... ALMOST!

Darrell said...

Alright... I will give you that she is cute. But poor Petey!

And help a guy out here... how do you pronounce her name? Is it a long A like Shay-lee or short a as in apple?

Sarah said...

Oh, COME ON! I was really pulling for Lafawnda! So you still got Shay with just a little bit of a twist.

I love the pic with Vallie and Shaley. The pup looks like she is letting Vallie know "there is a new dog in town".

I'll do an edit - but it's pronounced (Shay-lee) with the long a.

Libby said...

She is cute, but just like a grandma, I can come to YOUR house and play with her. When I'm tired I get to go home and you get to keep potty training!

Amy said...

She is so cute , I WANT ONE!!!!LOL

Sarah said...

Is that the same dog that was in the picture below? Her coloring and nose look a little different.

Libby said...

I agree, she does look different! I think you may have gotten an imposter! It is a conspiracy I tell you!

Sarah said...

It's the old bait and switch move.

Or, she just had her stage makeup on for the picture.

Who knows?

Sarah said...

Another thought just came into my mind.

Did Petey know where she lived? I a little afraid something might have happened. I'm not trying to place blame anywhere, but has there been any investigators asking Petey a few questions?

The 6 Karns' said...

Yes - it's a different pup (same litter)...but just as cute. Shawn says her 1/2 pink nose gives her her own individuality. See...we can put a positive on everything:)

Sarah said...

Did you pick her out or did they? She looks more spunky than the other pup. They are both cute.

The other pup looks like she'd walk with the background music of slow old time country. (Which is probably why Shawn wouldn't want her.)

I imagine Shaley's background music somewhat of a fast paced hispanic flavor tempo. Or some kind of extreme violin action.

Does this mean that the Garrett's can like this dog since essential she is the 3rd place pup? Technically, she is the underdog.

Libby said...

You Karns just have no heart. You disappoint pups anticipating adoption left and right. You are so fickle! Petey gets sick...dump him. Go to the pound to get LaFawnda...find pink nose...dump her. I sure hope you don't get to Georgia with all those preachers and decide you find something better!!! Guess it's a good thing we're taking our own van! Otherwise we might have found ourselves thumbing our way home while you guys pack up the new guy!

Sarah said...

Ok, Shaley is sooooo cute! She is so tiny and furry. I've got to give you a thumbs up on her.

Libby said...

But then they grow up!

The 6 Karns' said...

She is so cute/tiny/furry... who knows, maybe she's not a lab after all and will only grow a little. She was only 2lb 9oz on Tuesday...

Hey, send me an email with your email address so I can send you some pictures from Discovery Depot. seanmmckee@yahoo.com

Libby said...

OK! I'll admit she's cute, but you know if she had been ugly it might not have been so easy for her to weasel her way into your hearts and boot the others out!!!

HMMM. You're not going to look for a better looking pastor's family when we get to Georgia are you?

Sean McKee said...

she is pretty cute but I noticed that she has kind of a blatter problem...

Sean McKee said...

I mean bladder...
