Tug - 8 weeks

OK, first - some 7 week pictures:

Classic rottie-butt shot

Having some crate time

And now, some 8-week shots I took today:

Practicing "sit"

Who could resist that FACE?!

OK, sorry - this is just a pretty picture of my much-needed liquid refreshment after dealing with three boys and a puppy ALL DAY. Can you blame me? See how my appletini matches my glass...

Puppy Pics!

Introducing Tug, the newest member of our family! Dan decided to do a "mama and doggie" photo session. We picked him up yesterday from Randi's Rotts. THANK you Randi!

I love the sequence of these two below - he got pretty comfortable on my lap!

He was such a good boy on the trip home from Minot! I couldn't let him cry in the carrier, so I held him most of the trip. We stopped every half hour or so, so he could run around in the grass and relieve himself. He didn't pee in the Jeep even once!

Just like children, everyone wants to know about elimination training and sleep, so here's that info:

Last night he did great in the crate by himself... from 10 until about 1:30. After that, neither he nor I slept at all, and I got up every 2 hours to take him out. It's so hard not to just pick him up and let him sleep cuddled up next to me, but we know you shouldn't let a puppy do something you wouldn't want a full-grown dog to do!

He is figuring out that when we go out to a certain spot in the backyard, he should go potty. So far, he has done it every time.

So that's my update. I'm sure we will have loads more pictures to come! It's just like having a new baby, except without the postpartum blues and... oops, too much information. You can probably guess the other stuff.

We're expecting!!!

Ha! No, not the way you might think. But we are adding a new member to our family this week, and it should be no surprise to anyone...


Below are a few pictures of our newest baby. These are 5-week photos. We haven't formally decided on a name yet, but when we get him home on Thursday, we'll take plenty of pictures, and post them along with his name.

Don't you just want to SQUEEZE him? HE'S SO FUZZY!

my body art

Well, I did it! Below are pictures of my tattoo. Best not to ask Dan what he thinks about it.

I had to get a shot of my pedicure, duh! (OPI's Man of La Mancha for those who must know)

I'm not sure why there's a black shadow - I tried this shot numerous times, it was always there.

Kitty says "You has a flavor?" (it's funny if you read this blog!)
