We have Expanded by Four Feet : Our First Puppy

Well well well, here is our little man!! Meet Newman. He is a Redbone Coonhound. Everyone thinks he's a Dachshund , but little do they know he's going to quadruple in size.  He is already waking us up at 5:45am, snores like a lion and keeps us on-the-go all day long. Newman has been adjusting well, he still whines when the washing machine turns on, when we leave the room, or when a car horn goes off, but that will soon fade. He sleeps through the night and has only had a few accidents in the house... hopefully he stays that way. His kitty siblings aren't too sure about him yet, but they are coming around slowly. On Thursday of last week we left Indianapolis  and drove straight to North Carolina to pick up our pup the next morning. This was Dennis and I's first "road trip" together and surprising it went really smoothly. He drove while I got to talk his ear off and keep him awake for 9 hours..... I'm sure he loved it. :) We arrive in NC around 5am and was able to get some shut-eye for about 2 hours and then it was time to pick him up at 7am. He was born on a farm with sheep and lots of other dog.  Much to our surprise he slept most of the way back home to Indianapolis, with just a few potty stops along the way. We arrived back in town on Friday in the evening and snoozed the rest of the night away.

So far.... 

+ He would rather play with cat toys than the dozen dog toys his momma bought him

+ For a little guy, he can snore pretty loud

+ He's afraid the jump off the sofa

+ 10lbs going on 90

+ Not a fan of bath time 

+ Loves peanutbutter 

Newman has surpassed all our our expectations and we couldn't be more excited we made this life long decision.
