Our new puppy - Biscuit


So here he is...our newest addition Biscuit! 




Rodney and I have been putting off and putting off the kids idea of wanting a dog.  Neither one of us were ready for the responsibiliy that went along with caring for a dog, but we decided a few weeks ago it was time.  We drove to Moulton and picked him up yesterday.  Rodney's mom and dad have Biscuit's mom (Sweet Pea) and have been taking care of the 9 puppies since they have been born.  Biscuit is a Basset Hound - the type of dog with the long ears:)  They seem pretty low maintenance - we hoped - but what dog is low maintenance.  Any type of dog requires attention.  And our kids are sure giving it some attention.  They have fallen in love!
He will be an OUTSIDE dog and will be allowed inside at times.  He needs to be potty trained NOW for those times he will be allowed inside.
Macy loves him!  But this picture was from 2 weeks ago.  He has grown so much that she can barely pick him up (which is a very good thing).  Hopefully Biscuit will survive all the things Macy is doing to her.

This is Sweet Pea - Biscuit's momma
Joshua adores the new puppy.  I think it was just what he needed to satisfy his longing for the baby brother he will never have.
And as for Marah - she is the little momma that loves to take care of him and make sure he has everything he needs - just like she has always done for Macy.

That is the cutest dog! And if those precious smiles on those kid's faces don't make that dog worthwhile I don't know what does!! Don't you just wish dogs would stay puppy-size forever?! Good luck with your new addition!

The kids look so excited! I love those of Macy carrying him around. I must say...he is cute...I like the puppy size. My kids better not get their hopes up, though. :)

Precious! He is adorable. I love the pic of Joshua holding him and his little body seems so long. Can't wait to meet Biscuit!

"Biscuit Bowerman" Does he have a middle name? I'm guessing it might end up being "Trouble".....ha!

I can't wait to meet him!
