We like to introduce you to the newest member of our family. After we bought a house we knew we had to get a dog. I had been looking at the Meridian animal shelter for weeks now and they just added a bunch of puppies. They had rescued these puppies from a very bad animal shelter here in Idaho. I just had to go and look at them. Loren told me that if I fell in love I could bring one home. Loren actually stopped at the animal shelter and he picked him out. He is the cutest little puppy. We think he is a mix between an Akita and a German Shepard. We named him Bowser. This picture a rainy day outside playing in the garden while we were at work. He was such a mess. Of course this was the same day he got his first bath. He is such a cutie, but still is a puppy. He chews on everything and has accidents, but we love him just the same. We have just taught him to walk on a leash. The first couple of weeks every time we attached the leash to his collar he would sit down and drag his butt when we tried to walk. We would try to bribe him with ham, call his name, I think we tried everything. But last night it clicked. It was dark and so he couldn't see many of the distractions and I walked in front of him and Loren and continued to call him. Then today we walked around the neighborhood. He did really well until we were coming home and he stopped at the house next to ours. He just wouldn't move. I finally had to pick him up and carry him home. We are excited for this summer. We plan on taking him on walks and up to the mountains. We love our little Bowser.
