More than one sentence

Baseball, softball, sunshine, dippin dots, setting records, walk-off grand slams, Jay Leno retiring from the Tonight Show, a road race, lots of water, celebrity deaths, trip to the zoo, an amazing cruise in a Bentley, doctor's appointments, trip to Branson, and a new puppy all in one summer. And, we're back!
That sentence alone is enough to make this blog complete! But you know I can't say it all in one sentence...

One of the biggest changes that Jacob and I have made in our life together happened about two months ago... we decided to get a puppy! Introducing Roscoe Muckelrath II. He goes by Roscoe.

Roscoe 4 weeks old

He just turned 16 weeks old on Tuesday, but we already know the things he loves and the things he doesn't love.

We'll start with his loves:

1. Jacob and I

2. Playing with/chewing on/licking our feet

3. Pouncing on his new friend - the broom

4. "Playing" with the cat (He's not yet aware that Mac doesn't like him very much)

5. Digging for "treasures" in the litter box

6. "The Wiz" w/ Michael Jackson and Diana Ross

7. His puppy food

8. Crawling under the bed (he's not yet aware that he will grow into a 2 ft. 60 lb. dog)

9. Dandelions (they are like built in toys in our yard)

10. Sleeping like this...

11. The new neighbor Lilly, a golden retriever who is 2 weeks younger than him.

Things he doesn't like:

1. Hearing the word "no"

Yeah, that's pretty much it.

We are having so much fun with him, even though he is ornery! I like to think he gets that from his "daddy.

He has done a great job with house breaking... although he still sometimes doesn't know how to tell us he needs to go! He is also doing a great job with "sit" and he's working on shaking. The next task will be not jumping on people... especially our most adorable nephew.

That's a nugget --B
