New addition to the family

6 more months, 9 more months...we need to get the house done before we take that precious step of getting a dog. With our last guest leaving us last Friday, I must have felt that we were going to be lonely. We didn't even last one day before making a new addition. We now have a pound puppy that we think is a Huskie and German Shepard mix. Welcome Jordan!

We officially "adopted" him last Saturday, but the home inspections weren't as straightforward as we expected. I'll save you the eyerolling. After much anticipation (turned to frustration), he came home with us yesterday. We had a good 2-3 hours to show him around the space. Little did he know that he was going to have a celebrity homecoming thereafter. He has met two fellow dogs, 7 kids under 5, and plenty of our pals. All of this was without a bark, whimper or moment that his tails stopped wagging. Fantastic!

What a great sport! We had tail pulling, bone thumpings, and lots of chasing without a peep. We were also very fortunate to sleep through the night without the slightest of whimpers. He's even been on the boat already. This pound puppy is going to be a real treat!

What a cutie! I'm guessing there is some Australian shepherd in there, too, based on the face shape and coloration... they have blue eyes, too, so it might be an Aussie/German mix!
Lucky puppy!
