And Baby Makes Four

We have a new baby in the house. One we weren't expecting.
.
We're on the waiting list for a female rottie in Georgia. She's three years old and sounds like what we've been looking for.
.
But Saturday, after a long day of shopping for this and that, Greg saw a sign for an adoption event for a local rescue group. We screeched to a stop and turned around.
.
I'm still looking for an Australian Shepherd, but once again I turned up empty. Then my eyes locked onto this pathetic little rottie puppy.
.
I got Greg's attention and pointed to the puppy. If there had been wings on his feet, the man couldn't have gotten there faster. He picked him up and latched onto him immediately.
.
HE was a boy and because of Tank's intolerance for other males we promised ourselves we would stick to females. But this little guy looks like everyone had given up on him. And we are suckers for hard luck cases.
.
The little guy ADORES Tank and follows him around loyally. Tank seems okay with him. Maybe he likes having a minion.
.
We signed on the dotted line and brought him home. He doesn't have a name yet. I'd like to call him Mouse because he can whine and eat at the same time. Greg likes the name Moose. We're hoping he will name himself, like our guys normally do.
.
Until then, let me show you our new baby. Isn't he adorable? The second picture shows you the size difference between him and the Tankster.
.

I'm nameless...so far.


Check out the size difference. Tank is currently 137 pounds.
---and no, the title of this picture is NOT "Guess What I'm Having For Dinner?"

Within 24 hours he is already beginning to show signs of fearlessness.

Time for me to worry.

Oh My, he is the cutest puppy! Adorable. I love him already :)

Oh, and my kitty of 13 years was named moose. Although I'm not sure what she'd think of her name going to a puppy :)

LOL. One of my good friends has a dog named Moose too. Popular name.

Maybe I should just call him, Lucky.

This puppy definitely has the aww factor.

I just about had to pry him out of a friend's arms when she stopped by to see HIM. HIM mind you. Not me. She drove 1 1/2 hours to see him.

I wish I were that cute. LOL.
