I Don't Think It's Legally Binding But....

....we have a new contract in our house. It goes something like this:

1. We will love him like crazy.

2. We will always be gentle with him.

3. We will play with him unless he's tired and doesn't want to play. Then we will leave him alone.

4. We will not try to carry him non-stop. We will let his legs do some of the work.

5. We will help with the tasks of feeding him, walking him, and bathing him.

6. We will clean up the yard after him*. (* An age clause has been added here at the request of Jack, and this requirement does not kick in for several years).

7. We will take turns playing with him and will not fight over him.

But how could you not fight over this little guy?

Say Hello to Indiana Chewbacca Stork (Indy for short). Guess who named him. And guess who's now outnumbered four to one. Until he reaches adult-hood, I get control of his vote in our democratic household.

Oh wow. My two boys often ask what your two boys have been up to. If I show them those pictures, they'll be on the next flight over. That would be ok, right?

I knew it wouldn't be long before you got another dog. What kind is it?

Gavin has a webkinz named "Chewey Roger O'Neill - but we'll call him Spike." ummm okay.....

He is adorable! I am so glad my boys do not read your blog, they would be so very jealous.

Sweet Lord, if my boys saw him, we'd be on our way to the Humane Society right now. ; ) It's just a matter of time, but I get final say and I say we're getting a girl dog. LOL! What a cutie!

He is way too cute!

Just a warning, we had the same agreement in our home when we got our puppies. It is three years later and I am the walker, the feeder, the poop scooper.

But you have to love them though!

He is cute, but I do not want to be in charge of another kid- so the rule at my female dominated household is no pets, not even fish until you are all responsible enough to pick up your own dirty underwear off the floor. I must say at this rate, my husband will never have a dog.

Hi Heather!
First of all--adorable puppy pictures! TOO CUTE! I wanted to extend an invitation to you in case you might be interested in joining a project we're working on for Box Tops for Education. We thought this would be a fun opportunity for you and your readers, and just in time for back to school shopping needs.

Through Box Tops for Education’s online Marketplace program, schools can earn up to $20,000 apiece each year by shopping online at the more than 70 stores that participate – all at no extra cost to the consumer.

If you’re interested in getting involved, we’d love to send you a $50 gift card to redeem at the Box Tops Marketplace, and enhance your first experience shopping via the site.

We hope that you will share your experience & encourage further support for education with your readers through your blog.

Thanks so much, and I hope to hear back from you soon!

What an adorable dog!!

My kids are always asking for a dog but I haven't given in yet.

This one might be too cute to resist though!
