Meet Lucky, the newest member of our family.  We’ve all spent a lot of time this past week getting to know each other better.  Our other dog Spicey is having to make the most adjustment of us all.  She’s used to being not only the top dog, but the only dog.  She doesn’t seem to understand the concept of us multiplying our love, as she’d rather try her best to make us divide it between them.  She comes whether we call her or the puppy, seeking her share of whatever love there is to go around.  She’s a real love hog.

Lucky is too.  He’s also full of energy as are most healthy puppies and he like to play! play! play!  He’s forever underfoot, and it’s a wonder that he’s not been stepped on a time or two already.  He’s so small and mischevious and can slip into the smallest little hiding place.  He’s a Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie), a herding breed, who came into this world nipping at everyone’s heels.  If you visit, please don’t expect that your shoes will stay tied for very long!

Kellen really loves his little puppy and they’ve already become fast friends!  They look cute together in today’s photo.  We all have plans to attend some training classes together soon so we will know best how to train him.  We’re a little challenged right now with the training of this little furball.  We’ve never had a puppy before, so it’s not something we’ve ever done before.  Which I guess puts us all on pretty even ground, since Lucky has never before been trained.   afs
