We interrupt this normally scheduled broadcast...

Yes, it's Tuesday, but there will be no shout out #11 for Etsy shops today.  I'll bring it back next Tuesday.

Today, we're too busy rolling around in cuteness.

You see, last night we went to pick someone up.

Meet Jake.

He's our newest addition, and over and over Grace and I look at each other and say, "Oh my gosh, he's so cute!"

So today when I wasn't weeding the flower beds, mowing, or fixing meals, I was hanging out with Jake.

But he mostly did this...

He slept a lot today, but we had bad storms last night, and he was up alot and  he's away from his mommy too, AND he's only 5 weeks old.

He is the most adorable pup I've ever seen.

I know it's very soon since we lost Rudy to be getting another dog, but with the kids and myself off until school starts, we thought this was the best time to get a puppy acquainted with us before we go back to work, and practices everyday.

He is super cuddly, and has even convinced Brent to get in touch with his inner softie.

There was a lot of napping, with short burst of playfulness.

He reminds us SO MUCH of Rudy, but black instead of yellow. 

We are told he is a mix...black lab, and they are not sure what else.  We got him from a young amish couple who were so sweet.  As soon as we got out of the van, Jake ran right over to us.  He was the only one of the 5 puppies who did, so that made him ours from the beginning.

We hope he's as good of  a dog as Rudy was.

So far, so good.


  1. He is beautiful Sure he is only 5 weeks old. He's a big little guy. It's not too soon after your loss of Rudy. You aren't replacing your Rudy. Looks like he has already stolen your hearts. He's very content in his new home. Congratulations.

  2. He's adorable! Hope you enjoy lots of puppy love.

  3. Sooo sweet! Congrats! Can't imagine a better "summer project!"
