TRAKKER had another milestone yesterday. He lost his very first tooth.
The problem is he’s really terrible at posing for photographs. It’s just TOO MUCH FUN to play with his “people” and those shiny black “chew toys” they hold in their hands. Too much temptation for puppies who like to play! (And by the way, he is a little perturbed that they took the tooth away from him, too…)
So here are the only two halfway decent photos we did manage to capture to memorialize his special moment. “Sitting” is almost too much to expect a little guy to do. Scampering around, climbing on his people, kisses and playing “chase” are MUCH MORE FUN than “Sitting” and “Staying”. What’s a puppy to do??
Here are some more of Trakker’s “Firsts”

An Artist’s Bold and Colorful House in Austin
by hookedonhouses on September 22, 2011
After seeing countless gray and white rooms in magazines and around the blogosphere this year, artist Elizabeth Chapin’s colorful house in Austin really woke me up. You can tell that a bold and creative person lives here, and that she treats her rooms like an extension of her art.
If the color of this bathroom didn’t wake you up in the morning, I don’t know what would:
My daughter Lily loved this house, but she really flipped when she saw this pink bedroom with the canopy bed and the big doll house in front of it:
Read the interview for more details and see many more photos of her house at Apartment Therapy. Visit Elizabeth Chapin’s website for more information about her artwork. Thanks to Gayle at Vintage Farmhouse for bringing it to my attention.
