Sorry I haven't posted pictures in a while, but we've been busy busy busy with a new puppy in the house again! I was also hoping to wait until my mom uploaded pictures from her camera of Shear and Shadow together before Shadow left, but she still hasn't done it...they're coming though.

Shear is doing great and is the cutest little fuzzball you've ever seen. Something very surprising (and great!!) about him is that when he sees something interesting, like a person walking a dog going past our house while we're outside, he'll sit and watch it. Sometimes he tries to go see the dog first, but ends up very calmly sitting and watching whatever he finds interesting. Isn't that amazing??

If you talk to him he'll sit and watch too sometimes, and then we praise him for sitting. My dad thought he knew "sit" when he was ten weeks old because if you tell him to sit, he does it, but it's just his response to things. =D Everybody was astounded at how calm Shadow was, even though she had her shining puppy moments, but Shear seems even more so. It's hard to tell at this age, but he really is doing great.


I took this one when I was on the floor with him and he fell asleep in my lap all sprawled out. He's such a cuddlebug!!

Tired puppy!!
Starting on a new toy.

His fuzziness...

no pictures of his happy laughing face yet...he's SOOO cute!!! Shadow is having a ball.

Shear Comes To Raleigh

Our new puppy, two months and six days old today, will be here in about an hour at the airport!! I'm so excited. His little golden retriever self is named Shear...and I guess I'll get used the name eventually. =]

If I don't post any pictures tonight, I will in the next few days. We have also received word that Shadow is leaving next Thursday, so we'll have both Shear and Shadow for about a week and a half.

We just got an email and it looks like we'll be getting the puppy tomorrow. Shadow will not be leaving yet. We still don't know the name, and I'M EXCITED!!!
