Champ

For a couple of months now Jared has been asking me about getting a new dog. Our beloved Jake died a year and a half ago and I just wasn't ready for another dog. Silly but I actually felt like I was replacing him. He was a beautiful golden lab and was the best dog. Jared really needed and missed man's best friend that follows him everywhere. Well, as always Jared tells me about pet stores he sees and I always say 'No Way!' But for some reason I said willing and excited 'Let's Go!' The kids of course are always asking us about getting a new dog. So they were really excited to go. There were lots of cute dogs but there was one we just had to see. He looked at us with these cute brown eyes and was just so adorable. He's a two month old pure bred golden retreiver and his coat was just so soft. After spending some time with him and having the kids pet him we all just said this is the dog. So we now have a new addition to our family. It has been about 3 weeks since we brought him home and he is such a great dog. I must admit, after we brought him home, I thought 'I have just added more work for myself''. Julian has really stepped up and has really taken care of him. He feeds him and takes him out to go to the bathroom and brings him in. He even picks up his little presents he leaves us outside without even asking. He has been such a big help I hardly do anything. We all are so excited to have "Champ" in our family.

Beautiful new pup! I would get a dog in a heartbeat if they stayed that small and cute...and if my kids would help!

So so cute. I'm glad you found another dog to love. And "Way to go Julian" for being such a good little helper with him. I'm impressed.

You are a rock star! After "babysitting" a dog for a couple weeks I'd had my fill of cleaning pee off the carpet. Oh, but he is cute!! Those darn puppies. Their good at looking you in the eyes and finding themselves a new home. Glad Jared has a new best friend to follow him around!

What a cute puppy! If all dogs stayed as cute as puppies I'd be in big trouble because we'd have a million by now. Way to go Jullian for helping out with the new addition.
