Meet Tioga

Tioga is the 11 week old pup who joined our family yesterday. His name comes from Tioga Pass, in and near Yosemite, one of our very favorite places on earth. I'm thrilled, Nathan is excited (it's his first pet) and Jacob thinks it's his birthday. Again. Josh is reserving judgement, until he knows how to make one. Tioga is mostly lab with a little suprise thrown in. His mom is full black lab, and the dad was thought to be full chocolate lab. When the puppies were born, they obviously had a splash of "not-lab-surprise". Tioga was one of eight pups and headed to the pound after his mom's owner placed six of the litter-mates and was done dealing with the pups. We're so excited to have him! Except for the potty-training (especially at 2 am!) and puppy-training, which I am remembering is harder than child-traning/proofing.

That's wonderful! My boys are bugging us for a dog- and I'n not having much luck convincing them a goldfish is just at cool.

Look up what GWP puppies look like. It'd be so cool if he grew a beard.

So fun, my daughter, and Husband, both want a dog so bad. Maybe after we move back to Utah (in 3 years). Good luck with the puppy training. I'm going to ask my MIL about the U-pick produce, she's big into gardening there in Utah.

Aww he is so cute. Congrats on the new baby. Our Lab is a second Mom for our kids...she isnt a full lab either but no one knows for sure what else is in there.
