Melvin: Photo Op

We have now had little Melvin as a part of our family for five weeks. Crazy, huh?

He is doing well, and we just love his sweet little personality. He is always happy - he holds his tail up high about 99.99% of the time. He is doing wonderfully in his obedience class. He can already sit, lay down, stay for a short time period, heel with an automatic sit when I stop, he will come and sit perfectly in front of me when I call him, and get in heel position. I am very proud of his progress.

Potty training is another story... we're still working on it.

Miguel and Melvin do not really get a long, but that's okay as long as Melvin just leaves Miguel alone.

Melvin had a trip to the groomers today and so I wanted to share a picture of him with his new do.

Here is another photo:

Is he not the cutest little puppy you have ever seen?

He's pretty darn cute. Btw, as far as the name thing goes, I wanted Winston or Cosby, but Mark really wanted Melvin. I'm very good at picking my battles, and figured I'd rather have a dog named Melvin than a child named Melvin, so I went with it. (-:

And yes we still miss Brinkley very much. I still have dreams about him, but his foster parent loved him so much she kept him and he is doing very well.

Happy Friday!

  2. LOL So cute! SO puffy and sweet! =) And I totally agree...a DOG named Melvin is MUCH better than a child. Haha!
