Introducing...

Trooper.

He was already named when we got him and we really liked the name, it fits him. He was rescued from a woman who severely neglected him and he bounced back like a, well, like a trooper!

He is already house broken and he is so friendly and polite. Yes, I said polite. He is. Really.

The boys absolutely love him and so do I. I almost can't believe it because I don't fancy myself a dog person. And the craziest part, he really likes me. He wants to sit on my lap and he follows me around like a puppy. (Hmmmm, did I just say that? )
















He has a silver lining all around the black parts of his fur around his eyes. The boys think that he is the silver lined cloud because his presense this afternoon caused such a stir that all lessons were pre-empted til tomorrow.















My dog. And my leg.


Look to the finish!

What a cutie! I'm not a dog person - at all - but he would be pretty hard to resist.

He is very, very cute.

And so nice that he's already housebroken! That's half the battle with a puppy.

I remember taking our puppy out to do her business in the middle of the night in freezing cold December. Worse than a newborn human baby!! ;)

Congratulations on the new addition.

OMG- he is adorable. That fact that he is a rescue makes the story that much sweeter. That is my favorite breed (well look of ) a dog. The classic black, whie , brown. How cute. Now I am looking forward to all the mischivous boys and their dog stories I know will be coming...
