A couple of weeks ago we picked up our new puppy. He actually is my birthday present but we had to wait until he was six weeks before we could bring him home. Every time I have to take him out to go to the bathroom, Jim just smiles and says “Happy Birthday”. His name is Otis but Jim likes to call him Odie.
Here are a few of his brothers and sisters he had to leave behind.
This was one of Otis’ sisters. I so wanted to take her too but was firmly told I could only have one puppy. There are responsibilities with owning a puppy you know. So we left her there.
Joni came along to help and she tried to sneak the sister puppy home but she got caught. If I remember right this story is similar to one with Joni and a puppy being carried to the car when we were heading home from Iowa, back in about 1988. I’ll have to dig up that picture.
I think he’s taking a liking to the Lumberjack. (and the feeling is mutual)
The Buchan boys couldn’t wait to meet Otis. They wore him out in the first half hour and all Otis wanted to do was sleep. Did I mention Otis is a boy?
Otis quickly learned that the couch was pretty comfy.
And his favorite place to sleep.
He loves playing by the pond with the kids.
Otis isn’t too crazy about being on a leash. He likes to be stubborn and just sit down and not move. But he is losing that battle.
We’ve also had some disagreements on what toilet paper is for.
And this poor plant is slowly getting ripped apart.
But sleeping is still his favorite pastime. He has been kicked off the couch and moved to the entryway. And all shoes have been moved safely out of his sight.
