We've been impatiently, counting down the days and minutes and getting everything
ready for this moment. The day finally arrived on Friday. BTW, I am pretty sure that I am way more prepared for this family arrival than I ever was with my own three children. (Sad, I know)

So, without further delay, I am thrilled to announce the newest addition to our family.

MOOSE Dickinson

But you can just call him MOOSE.

Moose is a Chocolate Lab and he was born on July 11th, but he was finally ready to be picked up and brought home with us on Friday at seven weeks old.

Oh, and he does have a middle name too. It's Todd. (named by our neighbor, whose first name happens to be Todd.
Coincidence? I DON'T THINK SO!

He answers to MOOSE.

homecoming was fun. We took turns holding him on the car ride and then when we finally got home, we played with him all around the yard.

The sight of a new puppy brought out all of our neighbors and their little ones to meet and greet. I think all the excitement wore out Moose, cause after a bit he just plopped down on the grass for a quick snooze.

Oooh...Awwww.... isn't he just the sweetest thing?

and in knitting news.....I've started log cabin.
Inspired by Deb from Wound Too Tight.

Okay gotta go get some sleep. I'll be up in a couple hours with puppy. I'm on potty patrol tonight. (yawn)

Oh, my gosh! SO CUTE!!!! He looks like he's going to be a very sweet dog for your family. My dog, Finbar, was originally called Moose by the breeder, because he was the biggest of the litter.

Love, LOVE, LOVE Chocolate Labs!! If you come over to my blog and meet Kona - he's two and a half - his full name is Captain's KC Kona (KC is for King Curmudgeon) - Chocolate Labs are about as sweet as they can be - big old teddy bears! (Be REALLY careful about woodticks until he's six months old - we almost lost our pup at four months due to a tick bite.)

What a handsome dog!!! Welcome to the family, Moose. Can't wait to meet you. I have to admit that we thought his name was spelled "Mousse", as in chocolate mousse....tee, hee, hee.

Jason is so jealous. He wants a dog too but can't have one in his condo.

What fun for the kids (mom & dad too).
