My life has been taken over by a tiny, toothy little tyrant.

She's adorable.

She's awful (Oh so naughty).

Her name is Theodora Tonks. Or, Teddie, as we refer to her (and she responds to).

In the (almost) 8 weeks that she has been in our lives she has transformed from this:

To this:

And this:

Don't let that face fool you! Oh yes, she's cute! But she is quite easily the naughtiest puppy I've ever owned.

We were completely deceived. When we adopted her she was the sweetest, cuddliest, sleepiest puppy on the planet. She slept in her crate without a peep the first night. The next day (and from then on) she has been a whirling dervish that was bred with a Tasmanian Devil (that never tires).

She's quite a little comedian. She's smart. She's busy. She's wild.

Despite the lack of sleep and the energy that she sucks from me, I'm so glad that this little fluff ball has joined the family. I'm confident that eventually she will spend more than an hour without serving a time-out (in her crate) and I'm hoping that someday she will enjoy a good cuddle.
