The Newest Family Member...


Yes we finally did it, we got a puppy, and the puppy of my husband's dreams I might add. With a ton of research, thought, and persuasion, Kip and I decided to get a Doberman Pinscher Puppy. We got him at 8 weeks old (I know, he is HUGE for 8 weeks)he was the biggest of the litter, and the best looking I might add. We have fallen in love with his sweet little personality. He loves to be close to us, to cuddle, to sleep, play fetch, chase the broom when I sweep, and just loves to love us. He is also really good with the little kids and we have really enjoyed having little ones over to play with him to get him used to being chased, his ears being pulled, and anything else a little kid can do to him. We are really excited to train him well, but before we get too ambitious, we are attempting to tackle potty training!! WHAT WORK I must say!!!! He has been doing well, I really can't complain too much. He is a great doggy. Kip is in love!!!! And I would have to say, that pup sure is in love with is Daddy!



Any of you LOST fan's out there??? WE ARE!!! If you can't tell... we are obsessed!

He is seriously so cute! Our pups will have to play in a few weeks after all the shots are done. Mr. Echo looks so much bigger than Chief but yet they are the same age. Chief is doing pretty well potty training and listening so we cant complain. But I cant wait to see Mr. Echo!

You guys are such cute mommy and daddy dog owners. And he looks like a very happy little man. I love the picture of him and the other "mr. Echo". Lost Rocks! So does your little doggy!

So glad that you got a cute puppy! And LOVE that you named him Mr. Echo. I was so sad when they killed him off on LOST! (We are crazy obsessed with that show)

LOVE it! That's a great name for a dog. I'm a huge LOST fan. We got a dog after we'd been married about a year. SO fun. Now three kids later, the dog is driving me nuts. It's like having four kids. But we love him...and we love that our kids have ALWAYS been around dogs.

Heather said...

He is super cute and huge! :) It's fun huh?! The crap part sucks, but seeing their little tail wag when they see you is the best! Congrats on Puppy Parenthood and really cute pages!

Kipn n' Sarah said...

Anybody that has little kids is welcome to come over and play with him. We really want him to get used to little ones. He is really good with kids so far, as long as he is not in the puppy nibbling mood. He is a good pup!!!

Kyra said...

I wondered if he was named after echo on lost- we are playing catch up and just started the third season- so wher we are he hasn't died yet- sad to hear he does :( do you scrapbook your pages and then post them?

Em said...
