Meet Derby!

Our family got a surprising new addition a few weeks ago that I haven't told you about yet... Meet Derby!

A friend of mine's in-law's neighbor (seriously) had a litter of 9 puppies unexpectedly that he needed to find homes for. So... we're suckers, and decided to adopt this little guy!

I should point out that he is not really a little guy anymore - he is growing like a weed! He is a lab mixed with... something! All of the other puppies are black, and most of them look more like golden retrievers, maybe? Derby is definitely very lab-like.

It's tough being a puppy and trying to stay cool!

Don't let this sweet sleeping face fool you! When he's awake, he's a crazy man!

My mom is convinced that he is going to be gigantic, and so she keeps comparing him to Clifford the Big Red Dog.  She even found him a Clifford toy!

He's very sweet, and follows us everywhere. He's done a great job with house training, likes to meet new people, and has fun playing with other dogs. Even though his crazy puppy-ness (ie: biting my feet constantly) is driving he crazy, I think he's a keeper!!


  1. Aw, how sweet! I just got a puppy too; her name is Charlie! No idea what mix she is either. Chews at my feet and ankles like they're bacon flavored. And I didn't remember how sharp puppy teeth are :)

  2. Maybe you should read Marley and Me! ...or on second thoughts, maybe it's best you don't! ;-)

  3. OMG I want him! We would love to have a brother for our crazy dog Maverick. He is so frickin' cute!


I love reading your comments - thanks for being a wonderful part of my blogging experience!
