Boom Baby!

Here is the newest member of our family, Boomer. We brought home Boomer yesterday afternoon. He did pretty well on the car ride home. He did of course do some protesting but soon settled down and slept most of the ride home. Copper has been pretty tolerant of Boomer, for an old man. The cat too, has held her ground and after a few curious sniffs Boomer moves on. The cat, right now is taller then Boomer but Boomer is the heavier one. He was the biggest of his litter and has huge paws. He will grow into a very sturdy boy. He has a beautiful, soft, silky coat.
The girls are of course in love with him. Its pretty hard to resist that face. He loves playing with the girls especially running around the yard. He likes following Copper around too, and tries to get Copper to play with him, while Copper prefers to ignore him.
So far we are all adjusting well. We've got a long road of training before us, but I think it will be a good learning experience for all of us. I will post more pictures later. It's hard to get him to sit still!

HOW ADORABLE IS HE!!!! Oh my goodness....I want to get on the next plane and take him on a hike. I betcha Copper is ignoring him...he's probably like, listen pup you are the new pooch in town and you better not mess with me or I'll kick your tiny little butt!! I bet a new puppy will prolong Coppers life by keeping him on his toes!! Who is the lucky sister who gets to sleep with him?

Talk to you soon!
