I am so excited to introduce you to Hazel, the newest member of our family.

Before anybody writes to tell me, I do know how much work puppies are and I will love every minute of it.

She met the sewing machine last night.  Connie and Hope met Hazel on Saturday.

More later.

    I am so VERY happy for you and Rick. I remember seeing you shortly after Faye came into your life. You were all smiles and happiness. I wish I could see you now loving up on little Hazel. I’m so glad you opened your heart to love again. It’s worth it.

    That little lovely looks like a Westhighland White Terrier which was my first dog. How I loved that girl. She lived a good long life too. May you make wonderful memories together 🙂

  12. Marsha Ivers

    Mary, Hazel is darling! Is she very young ? I am wondering how big she will get. She is just adorable!

  13. Kate

    You are as animal crazy as I am. You are fortunate to have a place to keep them all. I would have a whole menagerie if I could. Two dogs and twelve chickens are as many as I can handle. Love seeing all your pets and their escapades.

  14. Jane b.

    Congratulations on your new addition to your family. May Hazel bring you joy. Puppies keep us young.

  15. Kris Gavin

    Welcome Hazel… You are one lucky little pup to have Mary as your human! Can’t wait to hear all about your adventures! Congrats Mary!

  16. Lyn Smith

    Puppies are worse than having an extra child, but I think they are worth every minute. Dreadful time wasters but so great to have around. I’m sure you’ll enjoy every minute.

  17. Kathy Hanson

    I am so excited for you!! You wanted a little girl like that and she is so lucky to have you for her mom! What a cutie – will look forward to hearing all about her antics. I so enjoy your blog – I can’t wait to see what is happening at your house next!

    My Mother”s name was Hazel. Everyone needs a “Hazel” in their life——they’re wonderful. Glad you now have one, she’s beautiful. Enjoy!

  19. Sue Blazevski

    She is adorable. Does she like the goats and chicken? What breed is she? So many questions. She looks like she will fit right in.

  20. Julie Burkhardt

    Congrats on the new babe. Our grand dog is also named Hazel…she is a jack Russell/beagle mix with lots of energy. Great time of year for your pup to get acquainted with all the animals.

  21. mary jane

    Now who could resist that face. I envy you Mary. Hazel will love all her playmate that come, go and live there..Sweet…mj

  22. Martha Engstler

    We all will be waiting with baited breath for reports on your new sweetheart. Love the name. I’m going to be especially interested how she interacts with all the other residents of your wonderful extended farm family especially the chickens.

  23. Donna

    Mary Hazel is so very “cute”…..I’m sure you’ll enjoy her. I take care of two kitty sisters named Hazel and Edna. Enjoy your newest addition Mary.

  24. Cindie

    Hello Hazel. You are adorable and one very lucky dog! 🐾 🐾 🐾

  25. Esther L

    Mary I am so in love with Hazel, my son has one that could be her twin, her name is Maddie. I have a Jack also but true smooth coat . That broken coat is what makes Hazel and Maddie so adorable. Also I so enjoy all your posts and keep them all. I live on a farm with lots of birds ( all kinds) goats and dogs, what a wonderful life. PS also quilt do lots of your patterns. Esther L.

  26. Paula

    Congratulations to Hazel for being given such an awesome Mom and Dad! I believe their will be a “Lovefest” among the group!

  27. Ruth Cozad

    What a beautiful new member of the group. Yes puppies are work but so worth it.

  28. Susan Sundermeyer

    Oh Mary, Congratulations! Hazel is beautiful! I can smell her puppy 🐶 breath all the way here in Ohio. We all need to hold a puppy shower for you!

  29. Sara Reynolds

    Hazel is so cute. I knew when you were at the dog show a while ago, that it was only a matter of time until a new dog came to join your family. Congratulations and enjoy her! I am looking forward to puppy stories.

  30. Holly TH

    A terrier! And such a sweet one, at that! I’m so happy for you! I’m sure her story will be great fun and I’m looking forward to hearing about her and her upcoming escapades!

  31. Fiona at Ice Bear Quilts

    Congratulatins, Mary! Hazel looks lovely: enjoy every minute of it, I am sure you will. She is one lucky puppy to have found her home with you and Rick.

  32. Lisa

    Ok girl, fess up & tell us ALL about Hazel! Spill the beans! I want details and don’t leave out a single one!

    She’s totally, absolutely, completely amazing! Imagine what she’s like in person!!

    We’ve got a 4 yr old poodle and I’d love to have another, but hubby is convinced she’d be jealous. Did tell you she’s got him wrapped around her little…..ummmm….should it be toe or tail since she doesn’t have fingers? I think she’d love to have a buddy! We’ll see how it turns out!

    In the meantime I can’t wait for the new serial “The Adventures of Hazel”!!

    Love you & all your sweet babies!

  33. Marsha V.

    Hazel is so cute! Congratulations. Hazel will be a wonderful permanent addition to Lucky Dog Farm!

  34. Sharon Ernst

    She is absolutely adoreable!!! You can just see how sweet she is from the expression on her face! Lots of joy coming your way!! 🐾

  35. Debbie grisanti

    She looks interested in the sewing machine, she’ll be your quilting buddy!!!

  36. Joyce C

    Welcome to Puppy Paradise Hazel !!! What a great life you’ll have on the farm… I think you’ll be your Daddy’s new shadow ♥️🐾

  37. Angie Rowland

    She is adorable. Love the name as well. Full of spit and vinegar and LOTS of LOVE. who can ask for more. I hope to adopt a Maine Coon Senior and have passed the meet and greet and now my references are being checked and then a home visit and if I pass then I get her. My kids are wondering if she is coming from China and she is human as they think that the procedure is a bit excessive BUT she will be worth it she is adorable. When she wants picked up she comes over and puts her paw on your shoe and looks up at you. That is when I change my will. BUT, I am glad you have Hazel and she will be a special gift to you and you to her/

  38. Linda L

    I’m so glad you found a dog to love and give a home to. She’s sure to love it there.

  39. Paula (Texas)

    Ohhh! I love her! So precious! Looks like she might be full of spunk and love.

  40. ANITA Fetzer

    She is adorable…..They are puppies for such a short time and you will love it I’m sure. What a lucky little girl.

  41. Chris

    She is so cute! I love dogs and we know life isn’t always easy. Don’t they say having dogs make you live longer? Enjoy that little bundle of love.

  42. Jane dumler

    Busy times ahead for you and your household, lots of kessons for this pup who is terrier and probably thinks the farm animals will be fun! Enjoy this little darling.

  43. Jo

    What a joy. We recently acquired a rescue, 2 yrs old, named her Loretta Pearl. One of her first “gifts” was to chew my sewing machine foot petal cord in half! Now she roots around in the fat quarter basket and has started her own stash. We’re loving every minute of it. You will too.

  44. Kelley Knepper

    Oh I love her! So what breed is she? I have a Westie who really keeps me on my toes but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Congrats!

  45. Peggy

    What a little doll!! So glad she has a new home at your house with all the others!! Looking forward to hearing about her antics, & getting aquainted with the rest of the “family!!” Fun times ahead!! 🐶

  46. Janet

    Hazel is Beautiful. She has a lot of sparkle in her eyes!. Yes puppies are a lot of work, we have a year old Wheaten Terrier and she is full of spunk. I think back and remember when we first got her I couldn’t wait to see what type of pal she would be. My Stella has turned out to be a perfect member of our fur family and is clearly my pal and likes to be with me. She maybe stubborn, but her antics and personality make up for the stubbornness 100 times over. She makes me laugh every single day. Hazel will have so much fun with you.

  47. Diane

    Hazel is oh so cute!! She’s a lucky little girl to get such a great home. Enjoy every busy minute:) When you have time, details!!!

  48. Bobbie Woodruff

    She is so cute. What a face. Hazel got a special family and you got a special fur baby to warm your heart. Congratulations.

  49. Kristine

    Hazel is such a trinket – love her name!
    Enjoy all the puppy moments socializing Hazel.

  50. Ann Gupton

    I knew you would get another puppy…Hazel is just adorable.
    She will be running the sewing machine by next week!!!

  51. Dee T.

    She is so cute. Do your other dogs adapt to her? You do have your hands full. Enjoy!!

  52. Connie Thompson

    My grandmother’s name was Hazel and she was the best! She lived to almost 108, although the last few years weren’t great. Anyway, I think that’s a great name for this absolutely adorable puppy!! I just came back from my daughters. She had 4 dogs and 3 puppies! I was the keeper of the puppies while they worked! I’m in my 60’s and I tell you I was very tired by the end of the day! But, I would go back and do it all over again!! I had so much fun!! We had them crate trained and had started on potty training before we gave them away last week. They were so funny and fun to watch!! We laughed and laughed!! You’ll have so much fun watching this adorable little one!!! Enjoy!!!

  53. Barbara F.

    Congratulations! Ms. Hazel is such a cutie! Looking forward to hearing about all her adventures. So happy for you.

  54. Amy

    P.S. Sorry about the Cyclones. Does that mean we have to cheer for those other Big 12 teams?

  55. Sue

    She is adorable!! Looks interested in everything that moves….alert and ready to begin her new life with you. Congrats.

  56. Amy

    Hello Hazel!! You have a terrific family. Mary I think you should start a baby book for her 🙂 Ok maybe not that formal but a little journal of her antics. (I know like you have time for that!) She looks so sweet. We can’t wait to hear all about her and how the rest of the crew likes her! Welcome home Hazel!

    1. Amy

      P.S. sorry about the Cyclones. Does that mean we have to cheer for the other Big 12 teams?

  57. Maryjane in CA

    Oh my, she’s adorable!!! Will be interested to hear how you found each other.

  58. Diane Emanuelson

    Awe!!!!!!!!!!!! Shes adorable. Enjoy every bit of puppy hood!
    Diane 🙂

  59. Michele

    Hazel Jane is ADORABLE! Puppies keep you young, as you have to get up and get down, and keep going more often than you would if you had an older dog who was content to just lay at your feet. You will be GREAT for Hazel and Hazel will be GREAT for you!!! Congrats!! Can’t wait to meet her.

  60. MartyCae

    What an adorable puppy! So happy for all. I just love sitting in a chair and cuddling. Is this puppy a cuddler?

  61. Dianne Cook

    Congratulations Mary
    Enjoy all the new cuddles while you all learn to live together.
