Welcome Home, Grizzly!

I wanted to thank everyone for their kind words about our loss of Porter. We are still missing him terribly, but we know he's watching us. Yesterday we brought one of his relatives home, a beautiful boy from a cross between two of Laura Jones' exceptional Dobermans. His name is Grizzly, and he has patched our hearts. He is so much like Porter, yet so different...and that's so special.

He is about 8.5 weeks old. Here he is enjoying his first dinner at his new home. Sorry for the poor quality, it was taken with my husband's iPhone, and he apparently doesn't have the resolution set very high. I'll get some better ones soon.

Thanks everyone! He is just a little nugget of love, I can't stand it. He's so funny, and we're already seeing some of his personality. He's going to be wonderful. More pics to come.

Grizzly is a little devil! I know that 9.5 weeks old is still really young, but sometimes he's crazy-making. But we're grateful...he's learning some things and makes progress in at least one area every day. We have a trainer coming to the house next weekend, so my fingers are crossed that we'll start making even more strides. Here he is this morning, looking all cute. He's lucky he's adorable.

Isn't it ridiculous? I just had to correct him because he started nibbling on a gift card my husband had on the coffee table. He stopped immediately but looked at me with such a face that I laughed. I can't help it sometimes. Thank you!

Thank you! You know, I feel like we have a toddler living here...LOL I guess in a way we do! He has squeakies, he has stuffies, he has Kongs, he has Nylabones, he has those weird woven toys that floss the teeth...it's absurd around here. (He gets none of these unsupervised except for a big Kong in his crate.) But it keeps him happy and keeps his "chewing energy" flowing in the right direction!
