Well, quite the weekend it was for the soon to be Joy Family. We went to look at a puppy we found on petfinder at a foster home in Monroe, CT. Jack had been shipped up to Connecticut to be adopted after being abandoned at the Mississippi River bed in Tennessee. He arrived in CT on Wednesday, and when I saw his cute little face, I knew he had to be ours.

So on Saturday we went to 'meet' Jack not prepared to take our little guy home, but we couldn't walk away without him so off we went with Jack to our home.

 Bringing Jack outside at his foster's home

sound sleep like a good pup

Meeting Uncle Kevin

the new happy family :)

exploring his new place...

he LOVES this spot so we put his little bed there


thanks mom and dad for my bed, it's so comfy...

I don't know about this snow in CT. Back in Tennessee we don't have it...

Do you like my spots??

I loved the dog store!

time for a nap...

He has been SUCH a good pup, already house-trained!! He only wants to be with Brian and me, and cries when we aren't in sight. We've taken him on walks, to the puppy store, and out to lunch with us on Sunday. He just sat there like a good boy. The nights on the other hand...let's just say I'm exhausted! I can't imagine what it's like to be a mom!

Thanks for letting me introduce you all to Jack, I couldn't resist!!
