Puppies are like babies

Only puppies bite harder.

I've been a busy lady in my absence. Not only did I drive eleven hours across provinces with three children BY MYSELF, but I done got myself a puppy. Again, I am a sucker for punishment. The kids and I had a wonderful time torturing grandma and grandpa and their little doggie Nikita (who mainly hid in her kennel upstairs all weekend). Gramma fed them Coco Puffs for breakfast and bought then bubble blowing guns and jumped with them on the tramp. Grampa took them rinding and was gentle when they overfed his fish and pulled up his flowers. We had a blast.
As mentioned earlier we picked up a puppy for our little family. Why not,right? My life is already madness why not add a whining, carpet pooping, baby nipping, dirt digging, rug chewing, ADORABLE puppy into our life. Bnjamin picked him out and his name is Maximus. No not "Gluteus Maximus" and if one more person says that thinking they're being all funny and original...THEY'RE NOT! Sorry for those of you reading this who called him that.

Max is a wonderful puppy, fun, intelligent, gentle (except when the kids get him too riled up), sweet, and so soft. We've had him for almost a week now and I just love him! Except for when I don't. I already taught him to sit today. I'm so proud of myself, being the first time dog owner that I am. Now if only I could keep him from biting my skirt everytime I walk by.
More pictures to come.

I'm going to start calling him Glutes for short. Simply for the joy of making you angry.
Just kidding! He's totally a Max and I think he's so sweet!

AWWWWWWW - can you hear it all the way from TExas? What a cute puppy. And I know what you mean, I'm a glutton for punishment too. But, I wouldn't trade our doggie for the world. Glad you had a good trip and its great to see a post from you!

I miss you guys already!! And don't worry, it will all be worthwhile once you get past the puppy stage. When are you coming back again? And when will you be camping with mom & dad? I need to try to get some work off.

I love the name Max for a pup. I think that we had a Max in each litter that we raised. He looks soo cute! When/if you breed him.. I want one!
