J and I have had a busy weekend.

On Saturday afternoon, we added a new member to our family!

This is Wally.

He’s a Shiba Inu puppy.

We’ve been waiting for him for a long time.

He was born in New Hampshire at a the home of a Shiba breeder. (Never get your puppy at a pet store because most of them come from “puppy farms,” where they often mistreat the doggy parents to force them to produce more puppies. Always look for a responsible breeder if you’re going to buy a pure bred puppy. Or, better yet, go to the pound.)

So far Wally’s regimen has been mostly sleeping and pooping. You know, normal dog stuff.

But he’s really, really cute.

*Please be advised that as a dog owner I will now be forced (by puppy owner code) to give you regular “pupdates.”
