baby boy

Heck no! I ain't havin' no baby! Has it really been that long since I last posted?

Anylazyblogger, I'd like you to our little Igor.

He's a stray that we adopted to from the Humane Society. Igor is the sweetest miniature pinscher! All he wants to do is play. (That giraffe he's gnawing on no longer has a neck.. We have just the head and body left! Crazy dog.)

Igor was super skinny when we picked him up. His ribs and hip bones were jutting out and both HB and I felt so sad knowing that he was wandering the streets alone. He also has scar on the top of his head. The vet wondered if someone was trying to do some sort of operation on him because it's right near the soft spot on a puppy's head when their skull isn't fully formed. I hope not.

He's fattened up quite a bit in the few months since we brought him home. And he's finally getting comfortable at our place. All he needed was a little bed and blankie.

This litte guy is smart and fearless. It took me about 3 days to get to shake hands. (He'll do anything for food!) And it took HB just an hour to teach him to roll over! Now if only he'd learn to not bark and lunge at other dogs when we're out walking...

This is the first time that HB's had a pet. I was a little worried that HB wasn't up to the challenge, but he's stepped up to the plate and is a great Poppa to our little one. I think we lucked out because Igor seemed to be housetrained so we didn't have very many accidents. (I broke a toe nail while trying to stop him from pooping on the carpet. Ouch.)

HB can't wait to get another puppy. Who is this guy?

he is so cute!! And super smart! Too funny that it only took 3 days to shake a hand and 1 hour to roll over. My dogs seriously can only sit {sometimes} lol
