New Family Member

We got a new puppy! :D  We had been thinking about it for a while, and looking at the Humane Society..  Then Evan said he knew someone whose dog had puppies, yellow Lab/Corgi mix. I thought "Eh..."  (We wanted a Border Collie puppy.) Buuutt....   Look at that adorable face!!! How can you resist it?  And Labs are good family dogs. Although it is a mix. (A mutt, really. The mom is a Lab mix, the dad is a Corgi/Corgi mix. So..)  He's six weeks old. We got him on Sunday. It was Evans' friends' wives' brothers' dog. :P  Actually, two of their dogs, they must need to get one of them fixed..

He was really attached to Eons' shoe for the first two days. The only thing I could think of is it had the smell of all the other puppies on it? Eon was in with all of them, they were all attacking his shoe.

Maybe this will be Steve's dog, finally. :D  We have been calling him Duke. It's the only name we can all agree on. The kids kind of liked Marley. And I thought, he kind of looks like Marley. But my husband wanted a "real" dog name, nothing sissy. Lol

Aw...  A boy and his puppy.

And look! Jetta loves him, too! I was worried about that. Every time I would mention that we looked at dogs, to my Mom; she would say "Jetta's going to be so mad at you." I have to admit she (Jetta, that is, lol) was a little freaked out, and jealous at first. But I have been making sure to pay extra attention to her. Today she did a lot better, and they have been playing. Hopefully she will settle down after a while. She is being so motherly to him. But, whenever he tries to lay down by her, she gets up and walks away. :(  Poor little guy..  I'm glad they get along, though. Maybe he won't have separation anxiety as bad as he might have (if we didn't have Jetta).

Jetta will be such a wonderful teacher for him.

I'll bet you will find them, one day, curled up together sleeping :)

Aww...they are both lovable :)
My father got new dogs too, and one looks like your new dog. I just haven't gotten close to them yet. I'm also a bit confused with the different breed of dogs :p

Thank you Paula and Mimi. I have found them curled up (I just posted about that, too) sleeping together, Paula. They are best buds now. I think Duke is more of a mix than we thought, so he is basically a "mutt", but we don't care.. :P
