As I was saying, like, 15 DAYS AGO!
New puppy. Yeah. His name is Toby, formal name Tobias, Latin name Tobus Minimus. He is a mutt, but appears to have a lot of border collie in him. See?
Toby: Day One
This is the obligatory awwww cute wittle sleeping baby pic for all the gals.
Toby: Day One Sleeping

Toby's first encounter with our big boys went very well.

Buds Already
I'm very proud of this picture!

No respect!

Toby has a presence already. Here, he is disrespecting my parents' cats by sleeping in the cat bed after eating the cat food.

Uh, time for some new icons!

Yay for all of these pictures!



As a random side note, I was thinking about you the other day, wondering if you were still kicking around LJ. :) Good to see you back ...

Yay pics! I'm still kicking, just not as frequently as I'd "like" to. That is, I read every day, though I can't always get through everything on my friends list, but I have other constraints (blech) that keep me from being the box junkie I would have to be to read/post as much as I'd like to.

That is a really beautiful puppy! And your Golden looks so much like my childhood dog Bitsy who passed away last year. Wonderful pictures! :)

Thanks! Actually, we have two Goldens, but buddy didn't make any of the pic cuts this time. He's a bit more exciteable and I didn't let him around Toby for the first few days. Now they are all three getting along fine, however.

We lost our dog, Spanky, two years ago this month. He was 16 and had been with us since very early in our marriage. It was devastating, to say the least.

It is sad when they're around for such a long time. It's like losing a family memeber... well, it is. Bitsy was 14. :) Toby is gorgeous and I want him.

Oh my gosh! It doesn't get much cuter than that!!! :o)

i loved the lounging in the cat-box picture..*L

congrats on the new addition!!
aspiring2live From: aspiring2live Date: April 10th, 2006 04:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, had to get some pics of that. As soon as he smelled the cats all over it, he possessed it.

He is awesome, and I LOVE that picture of your two dogs side by side :)))
aspiring2live From: aspiring2live Date: April 10th, 2006 04:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yay! The photographer likes the pic I took!

I was lucky to get that, as they were never still.

I might have missed this somewhere, but how old is Toby?
aspiring2live From: aspiring2live Date: April 11th, 2006 06:33 am (UTC) (Link)
Yes, well, he's... very, very young... not real old at all. Uh, I'm gonna let Allie get with you on this girl question, 'kay? ;-)
acey From: acey Date: April 11th, 2006 01:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hey, I only asked his age, not what he weighed! *sniff*
:D
mygyzmom From: mygyzmom Date: April 11th, 2006 02:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
He's 8 weeks and 4 days old! And getting meaner (okay, and sweeter too!) by the minute! We are getting ready to go for his second vet visit in just a few minutes...

My heart is a puddle on the floor. Thanks. One more mess to clean up this morning. *grin*

Totally adorable, though. I am really jealous. I so want a dog. I can't wait until the day...
aspiring2live From: aspiring2live Date: April 10th, 2006 04:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know how you feel. I lubs me some dawgs. Toby's our inside baby dog, the Goldens are our outside lunkhead dogs. We call them the "brothers dim." But they are all lots of fun and we love 'em!

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww x infinity!

I love the one where he's sleeping in the cat box. heheheeee!
aspiring2live From: aspiring2live Date: April 18th, 2006 12:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think the "owning" of the cat bed is my favorite as well! He's a mean little rounder when he wants to be!
