Sugar is our 12-week-old yellow lab puppy. We've had her for 6 weeks now. Although she can be a handful at times, we both agree that she is the cutest dog in the whole world (we're not biased or anything). Who can resist that cocked head as she lays at her daddy's feet?

Sugar has doubled in size since we got her. At her first vet visit on Feb. 26 she weighed 12 lbs. On her second visit last Thursday, exactly a month later, she weighed in at 24 lbs. She's going to be massive. Just look at these big paws:

Sugar loves two things in this world. The first is the dishwasher. I have no idea why but she absolutely loves the dishwasher. I can't open the dishwasher for more than 2 seconds without her trying to get in it. She loves anything with water, so I think she likes lapping up the water at the bottom of the dishwasher. And it doesn't hurt if there are dirty dishes in there and she can find some leftover morsels to lick up. Of course I don't allow her in or on the dishwasher and I'm trying desperately to break her of the habit, but tonight I let her roam free for about 30 seconds so I could snap some pictures.

Now all four paws up:

Uh oh, CAUGHT!

I think the only thing she loves more than the dishwasher is paper towels. She loves to chew them to shreds. Again, we don't allow her to chew paper towels but she always manages to find one in the trash can or laying around when we're not looking. Here she is hiding under the barstools, so no one will see her and take the paper towel away:

And here's the aftermath:

Oh, the joys of dog-parenting!
