and they call it....puppy love...

Karl and I got a puppy! We found him through someone at my company, and it all worked out just right so that we got the last puppy from the litter. His mom is a Maltese/Lhasa Apso...



His dad is a Miniature Schnauzer...



And he...is Henry...



We picked him up this morning, and he's just the cutest little fluffball ever! We'd been looking for the right pup every since getting our house, and we finally found him! He was born on Thanksgiving Day, so he is 8 weeks and 2 days old. He weighs in at a whopping 4.5 pounds, and he's about as tall as a soda can. :)

He has taken a liking to Karl...



But the cats aren't too sure what to make of him yet...



When we first brought him home, he had a bit of play time...



And then he piddled on the carpet (oops!) and has been sacked out every since...



We've got his first vet appointment scheduled for Monday afternoon, so keep your fingers crossed that everything is okay with the little guy.

Potty training, here we come! :)

Man, Henry has a mean little face, just like Gretel did as a puppy! The two keys to potty training: use a crate, and give him a special treat every time he goes outside. The treat is the part that really works!

So adorable!! I love that you have pics of his mom and dad, too! I can't believe he'll keep the sweater on -- that's great.
Have fun!!
