Puppies change everything

Heyo, friends - how's your Monday going?


When I last checked in, I shared just how awesome being a homeowner can be. As in when the furnace needs repair and then the next weekend, the dryer goes out. Ah, the joys of owning a home.

Well, we ended up going with this one - this sleek, yet relatively cheap Frigidaire from Sears. I now love Sears.

The very same day, we ended up making another major decision and investment in our home, but this one was a lot more fun...

A puppy! I mean, come on, look at that smile... who could possibly resist? 

... and we've had our hands full ever since. 


He's an Australian Shepherd mix, 15 weeks old and very naughty. 
Apparently toilet paper is really fun to play with. Who knew?

We've renamed him Clay - for his unique red merle coloring, and of course for our favorite Green Bay Packer - Clay Matthews!

Once he's fully grown, he'll be a big boy like Clay.


Our 'original' pets, Blue and Rufus, have been skeptical about the puppy, but for the most part are accepting. It's pretty hilarious to see their daily interactions. 

You do the talking: Do you have pets? What are their names, and what are the stories behind them? 
If you have more than one pet, what was it like when you welcomed the new one?

When we introduced Blue to our apartment where Rufus was reigning as king, we had to keep them separated for several weeks before they could be in the same room without getting defensive. Blue was Rufus's first dog, and Rufus was Blue's first cat! Now, they are old pals.

Oh man...I wish I had a pet! Just not the right time for me at the moment, but I'm debating get a cat for when I start medical school this August. Something that I can pet and love when things get stressful! Lol...your new addition is too cute for words! :)

How cute! We have two Westies (both under 1 year old). You can see them here: http://chefduo.blogspot.com/2011/04/our-garden-year-2.html

How wonderful for all of you. We have a very tiny cat - maybe 4 pounds and she is a suck and a 14 year old yorkie who is spoiled rotten and they are the best of friends. When I take the Yorkie (Bobbi) for his monthly grooming, our tiny kitty (Molly) cries the entire time looking for him. I can't imagine coming home and those two not here to greet me.

We are adopting a mixed breed dog that is 15 weeks old this weekend from the Midwest Australian Shepherd Rescue. He is part Aussie/part German Shepherd. We are a bit scared but love both Aussies and GS breeds and are hoping for the best
