                Announcing the arrival of BOO
    We did it! We are now Dog owners. You might think I'm crazy for getting a Dog right as Harper is crawling, but the opportunity presented itself and I took it. She is a yorkie so she won't shed. She is 2 1/2 pounds.Therefor small poops and pees. So far she doesn't really bark too much. Not to mention the boys LOVE her. We took a vote for her name I wanted Babe. Ollie wanted Boo. Max wanted Trike? Boo won. The name is a character from Mario bros(of course), Monsters Inc And any rappers significant other. I'm trying to potty train her so if any of yous have advice please share. I've been doing the pads which is 40% successful so far. So there you have it your good friend Ruth lost her mind and got a dog.

I would rather set myself on fire than have a dog. Mostly because I already have one. His name is Jack. He doesn't shed, but he isn't house trained.

Watch out. Boo might end up like Jack- the puppy who thinks he owns the place.

Wow. Seth wants a dog. I told him he needs to get me a house first. To comment on an older post, Seth really wants those hangers. The man dreams of me having an organized closet. One day...doubtfully.

Brave woman. I figure when I want that sort of responsibility I'll just have a kid. And when that yet-to-be-born child wants a pet, well, he/she better learn to love gold fish. A gold fish named Fido...I actually like it.

Who is cuter....I don't know, Ollie or Boo. Both are absolutely adorable. Because Boo doesn't shed, does that means he's good for people with allergies????? I have a deal for you. I will bath & primp my chihuahua Tico, and I will take Boo (as is). Deal?????

Congrats on the pup.....he is adorable!

You know now that boys are older the dog thing was bound to happen. I always had a dog growing up. It's definatly not going to be easy. I just hope they appreciate it. (thats probably to much to ask huh?)

hey steven's aunt use to ring a bell every time she took her dog out to potty and then hung the bell in a place where her dog could ring it and every time she needed to go potty she would ring the bell and aunt donna would let her go out. it worked like a charm!

welcome to the dog owners club. mine are 7 years old, crazy!

Very cute dog, I think if anyone can do it, it is you- you have already proved that nothings going to get you down... just a little advice, it will get harder before it gets easier, so just know that it will get easier, they just need to get past the puppy destruction phase.

no dog ever for me. I ended the four legged pet thing when Chris and I had a cat and someone told me I had to rub it's butt like it's mommy does with it's tongue when it's newborn. sorry. Anyway, that's when I said no more. But my girls are surely enjoying yours. :) We'll just live vicariously through you. Too cute of a dog though.
