Say Hello to Bear!

Say hello to the newest addition to the family! His name is Bear and he's a 1.5 year old Rottweiler. He's also a big ole' baby and cuddle bug.

We went to the Humane Society on Friday with Tim's "little brother" (through Big Brothers/Big Sisters) to let him play with the puppies. We've been looking for our next dog and were thinking along the lines of Shepherd, Husky, Doberman, etc. I checked the society's website frequently and didn't see anything that fit what we were looking for. Well when we came across this big guy, it was love at first sight. 

He wasn't on the website yet since they had just gotten him. Tim and I knew he would be snatched up quickly so we put him on hold and came back in the morning with Piper for a meet and greet. He is SO playful and happy and goofy. He was intimidating for about 2.3 seconds and then you realize he's a big softy. He and Piper hit if off right away so we made it official!

On the car ride home. Already bonding with Dad!

"Oh crap. We just got another dog."

Hey there, slobbery boy.

Rotty butt. Apparently he thinks he can fit under the bed. He can't.

We can't wait to get to know this big guy. He's already been such a joy and I'm so glad we could give him his forever home! Once he gets acclimated we will enroll him in obedience school like we did with Piper. He isn't quite aware of how large he is so some training will be helpful. 

And Piper is SO pumped to have a big brother to annoy and play with outside. Exciting times!
