My surprise revealed!!

This weekend our family welcomed a new member to our home. We adopted a puppy!

Readers, meet Henry.

Henry is a chihuahua/dachshund mix. He is eight weeks old and is the cutest little butter ball I have ever seen. He has a big belly and stumpy legs. We are seriously in LOVE!

Emma isn’t completely sold on her new little brother yet. She ignores him, and is generally not pleased. I am keeping my fingers crossed that she comes around soon.

L had arranged a picturesque picnic lunch for us at a park in Malibu for Valentine’s Day, but instead, we spent our day buying a crate and smelling our new puppy.
I couldn’t be happier!

    So cute … I wish Princess, Emma & Henry could play! Hehe, that's an awfully long commute for a doggy date, though!

    Make sure to post a lot of pictures as he goes through puppy hood!

    Cute beyond words! Wish I could give him a snuggle, smell his puppy breath, and be chewed on by his little razor teeth…. Puppies are kind of a pain in the neck, but they're just so darn adorable!

    Thanks, everyone!! We can't get enough of our little pup!
    @Krista: Awww, I wish we could do a doggy play day with Princess 🙁 I will definitely take a lot of pics! They grow so quickly that later it's easy to forget how small they once were!
    @TwoWishes Tara: He totally has razor teeth right now!! And puppies are totally a pain! I am running on adrenaline right now, but I know I will likely be crashing and burning by week's end 🙂
    @honey my heart: Thanks, sweetie! The mix is called a "chiweenie"…isn't that funny?! I had never seen it either.
    @Mo: Hahaha! You guys should get a pup after the wedding! It's a lot of work, but so much fun, too 🙂

    What a cutie pie. I think that Butterball is a great way to describe him.

    I discovered you from a comment you left at Nie and You. So glad that I did!
