Our Newest Addition

Say hello to our family's newest addition, D-MAX.




We saw him for sale on craigslist and were instantly in love with him! We have been wanting a dog forever, but never felt the time was right to get one. Since we are in our own home now and nate is old enough to love and play with a dog we decided now was great time! Only problem is we dont have side fences on our yard, but hopefully this will hurry up the process! We called the number and went and looked at all the cute puppies and D-MAX came right up to us! Him and Nate started playing catch right away and I believe it was love at first sight! He was born March 21 so he is almost 11 weeks old. He has been such a good dog already! Surprisingly he didnt wine once last night! He slept all night and woke up when Skyler did this morning at 5:30. We took him outside to go potty, but he didnt go, so we brought him back inside. About 10 minutes later we noticed him just starting to squat so we quickly carried him outside! He then went potty! Oh the joys of potty training! Maybe I should have nate start potty training with him! Ha ha jk! I think I can only handle one at a time! He hasnt really tried chewing on anything yet and he hasnt barked at all! We had him laying on the lawn with us last night and he didnt bark at the neighbor boys who came over! He just loved that they came up and started petting him! We are so excited to have Max as our dog! We already love him to death which is probably a good thing because I am sure we may start regretting our decision once he starts peeing, pooping and chewing on things. So far so good, but then again we havent even had him for 24 hours yet :) Nate loves him though! Its like having a new friend! They chase each other and play catch and nate cant get enough of it! He just laughs and laughs when Max chases him! Its so cute! Hopefully they will be best buds for life! Welcome to our home Max!!

OKay...see, you shouldn't have posted that! It reminded me of when we got Pepper (RIP) and almost talked me into having one. I know Josie would love it, too bad I'm not ready! If I see him in person I might be though. Darn you! ;)

I am so excited for you! You will LOVE having a dog. Yes sometimes the hair and slober gets old but you cant help yourself when they cuddle up to you and give you those little puppy dog eyes. So cute!
