Nordic: ADOPTED!

Sorry for the late update folks, but Nordic has been adopted! He was only with us for a week, but we fell in love with that sweet little guy. He was so much fun to have around and got along great with our dogs. Luckily (before we became foster failures!) he was adopted by a wonderful couple. Now he is living the life of long walks, running in parks, swimming in lakes, and, of course, being spoiled! We wish the best for Nordic and his new family. Hopefully we will get to see more pictures of him as he grows!

Nordic: First Impressions

He has finally arrived!! Our first Newfie! We're calling him "Cooper."

We are still getting to know him and his habits, but one thing I can tell you for sure, this little guy is a cuddle bug! He climbs into your lap and just melts. He loves to be held (which will be hard to do down the road) and attention.

He got along with our Labby boys right away. They were running, jumping, and tunneling through the snow almost immediately after he arrived. By the end of the night, they were all cuddled up in ONE dog bed. I tried to get a picture, but as soon as they saw me they got up to give kisses. He slept in the crate the first night. A little crying, but then right to sleep. Night two, on the other hand, was not so easy. A lot more crying and barking. Eventually we gave in and let him out of the crate. He immediately got in Harley's bed and went to sleep. It must be hard for him to see the other dogs lounging around the room while he is stuck in the crate. But, until we get to know him a little better, we thought that would be safest for everyone.

There have been a few accidents, but, after all, it's only day 2. He isn't a chewer, which is great! He LOVES toys and seems to leave everything else alone. For now at least. He might look big, but he is 100% puppy. We laugh at him constantly. He is quite the uncoordinated little guy with those HUGE paws he is always flopping around.

A few pics below to enjoy...more updates soon!

Did you see the "*". . . he already has an app!

After playing in the snow...

All pooped out!

Okay, now she really LOVES running in the snow!!

**The big crash you hear towards the end is Thatcher running into the house, sliding across the tile floor, and sliding into his food and water bowls. Don't worry, no animals were harmed in the making of this video!**

Our First Snow!

Checking out all the new white stuff that wasn't there when she went to bed last night!

Starting to enjoy the snow with brother Harley!
