New Member of the Family

This past Saturday we adopted a beautiful little girl we named Remy. She is a full blood German Shepherd and is such a little cutie. She is such a smart girl and has already learned so much in the last few days we have had her. She is only 8 weeks old and about 10 pounds already, she is going to be a big girl. 

This is a picture of us bringing her home on Saturday. She is such a good car rider already and just falls right asleep. 

The toughest part in bringing her home was introducing her to my pumpkin Eli. He is very unsure of having a new puppy in the house and is skeptical of her. But so far they have been steering clear of each other and when they are brave enough to sniff the other one they are very nice. 

This face has become my weakness, I just love her so much already and I can't imagine not having her in our lives. We are so excited to teach her everything and to see how she develops as a dog. She is so playful and fun and has become just another part of the family. 

How could I ever say no to this face? She is a little snuggler and loves to cuddle with mom and dad. 

We already have had our first bath and she was so tuckered out afterwards that she slept in dad's arms for a while and then mom's. She loves to be held and snuggled, unfortunately she's going to get so big that this is the only time we will be able to spoil her like this. Plus Jarr is very specific about things we can and can't do with her, like how we talk to her, treats, playing, snuggling, and training. We want her to be the best possible dog so sometimes that means we can't always be the nice fun parents we want to be. 

Our girl just loves to sleep in crazy positions like this. She is such a funny little one. I am so glad we have her and I know she is going to continue to bring joy to our lives. 

What have you done to introduce a new family member into your house?
