We love CREMBO!!!

We have a new member of our family.........we adopted CREMBO* yesterday!!! She is as you can see, an adorable light brown puppy, a mixed breed of some sort, with the cutest disposition!

We named her CREMBO because we needed something that our boys wouldn't grow out of, and wouldn't think is too girly. And, she as you can see is brown, but has a white chest, hence the brown on the outside, white on the inside like a CREMBO! (see below for explanation of a Crembo)

We adopted her from people who had adopted her through the SOS adoption agency in Israel. I think he said he drove about 2 or 3 hours to another town to go pick her up. She was one of a litter of like 10 puppies who were found and being adopted out. So why didn't he keep her? Well, he and his wife have 3 kids, one of whom is a 4 or 5 month old baby. It was too much for them. So he put an ad up and here we are........with our new love! (who by the way was being called 'muffin' with this other family). she is..........she's as cute as a button and really a good dog. Last night, we had shabbat dinner here, the 4 of us and the in-laws. She played and played with the kids before dinner. Then, when the people sat down for dinner, she went into the adjoining living room and lay down on the floor, cuddled up to a blanket, keeping us in eye sight, but not whining or bothering at all! I was most impressed.

And last night, we brought her bed into our room. She came up onto our bed for a bit with us, and when we turned off the light and put her down on the floor, she went into her little bed and went to sleep! SO CUTE!

Ok, so enjoy the pictures and wish me luck, I KNOW this isn't going to be easy...........she already had a big pooper accident on the freshly cleaned carpet. ugh. I'll keep ya posted........

*For those of you who live in Israel or have ever lived in Israel, or live with an Israeli (you get the point), then you know what a Crembo is................for those of you who don't, it's a delicious chocolate covered marshmallowy fluff conconction on top of a little cookie. It's been compared to Mallowmars in the US, but since I grew up in the south, I don't really know what that is. But I know crembos........and I love them, and my hubby loves them, and especially, my boys love them!
