Introducing Tucker

And once again, we are four.
This is Tucker, who's name we just finally decided on. He's an 11 week old schnauzer who ended up at a rescue down by Sedalia, most likely because he's very brown, rather than the black or salt-and-pepper he should be.

I'm sorry there aren't better pictures to show you, but there hasn't been much standing still. Alex seems more than happy to have a baby to play with, and the baby has no backdown what so ever.


So far we've not had any accidents in the house. (Whoops, make that one accident in the house - pay attention dad!) I wasn't sure I believed the rescue lady, but he really does seem to know outside is where he's supposed to go. He also slept through the night pretty well, although he did wake up way early.

Alex has been a total sweetheart, dealing with the near constant assault of needle teeth and playing tug as required.

Cross your fingers that the peaceful transition continues!

So cute! I can't imagine that level of energy in my house. From the dog, anyway. Well, from any of us, come to think of it. Not in this heat!

Kathy, its more energy than we've seen here in some time. Happily, Alex is way more into it than we thought he'd be!

Is there anything cuter than a puppy schnauzer? Love the look of "Who me?" of the first shot. Glad Alex is showing the little guy the ropes.

Congratulations to you and Alex! You are the second person I know who adopted a "rescue" this weekend - good karma coming your way.
