He joined our family this weekend. He'll be 11 weeks old tomorrow. He was born to Missy, a sweet Golden Retriever, the dog of our dear friends the Hoffmans, #5 of 9, and formerly known as Gus.
So far, so good. The kids love him and he is super, super mellow. Falls asleep in your lap. Doesn't even flinch at Charlie or Elisabeth mauling him.
Lil'Nathan wishes he'd been born in the summer, though. Taking the puppy for a potty run at 5:30 this morning in 19* with wind was a brutal wake up call. He's trying to convince us that Teddy is smart enough to learn to use the toilet.
