We got our puppy yesterday! So far he's doing really well: he's learning his name and has already gotten the hang of "come". And even though we only got about three non-consecutive hours of sleep last night from all the whining, we still love him to death.

Now Charlie and I are off to practice crate training...

Congrats on the new addition Sarah! You can put a ticking alarm clock (the wind up one) in his cage under the blanket or pillow so he thinks its his Mom's heartbeat...or even a towel that you heated in the microwave (make sure it's not too hot). Having a puppy is great fun - only problem - they grow up :(. What's his name?

Gee, cutie, cute and adorable have already been used. Oh well, I second all of those and hope you enjoy him tremendously.

Congratulations! What a darlin'! Oh, and the alarm clock solves the whining. In fact, even after 5 months Cody get really upset if I try to take it out of his crate. But then again, he's a bit obsessive 'bout things!

Good luck!

Absolutely adorable (wife and I agree on that) had to hide it from Buddy though. Don't want him feeling jealous.

Ooooh, my new "grandbaby" is sooo cute! He'll do much better after a few days and realizes that you're his new mommy. It's not a whole lot different than bringing a baby home from the hospital! There's an adjustment period. Keep us posted on how he's doing. Did Daddy Russ pass out bubble gum cigars?!?!
