Yes we added a baby to our family...but not the kind you are thinking...
Our Life Forever Changed - Our Family of 3!
Hank is a chocolate lab puppy...we took him home at 7 weeks old! We visited him at 6 weeks...
and we knew he was the one! B has wanted a puppy forever....and I had been the resistant one - but lately I was the one wanting a puppy! We decided on a lab to be a good hunting buddy AND family pet ... and I LOVE chocolate labs and although B first wanted a yellow one we BOTH couldn't resist this guy. His parents are AMAZING hunters and so we are hopeful that he will be a good boy as well!
Hank came from a farm about 90 minutes from where we live...and he really did good on the truck ride home in my lap! He can be a little snuggler...and I don't mind that ONE BIT.
He loves his rope and to play tug! In fact he jumped RIGHT IN to playing with dad when we got home..but he got a WEE bit TOO excited - oh well! That is puppy life!
He loves his donut too! (can't blame him!) but sometimes he gets his head stuck in it...
Also loves tackling and pouncing on his squirrel and giving it the headshake!
Usually plays SO HARD .. and then NAPS SO HARD too!
and when I'm passed out...that is when mom and dad can get a few things done!
Otherwise mom wears me when I sleep so that she can cook and clean... Do they make puppy wearing backpacks? Asking for a friend...
my heart seriously melts looking into those eyes! They ARE starting to change to brown!
I've already been on a puppy play date and LOVED playing with the big dogs and other puppy! I guess I even stood up for myself and tried to wrestle - made dad pretty proud! On the way home I was sooooo tired! Passed out in mom's lap.
I'm a pretty good eater too! And so far I haven't been begging for mom and dad's food. They want that habit to keep up!
I sleep in my kennel by mom and dad's bed and have mostly been waking them up when I have to potty every few hours. Sometimes mom pulls me into bed so we can nap together! And sometimes I just want to play...at 3 am... Mom says she needs more coffee...
And I love to play and chase dad in the snow! I already learned how to go up the big stairs, but it drives me CRAZY that I can't go down them! I just want to follow dad like a little shadow EVERYWHERE.
We are working on learning how to sit and come ... and to chase my dummy!
I sure do LOVE my two boys...
My heart is FULL.
