Newest addition to our family

Meet Buster
Everyone attempting to bathe him
He is 7 weeks old.
Trying to get a picture of a puppy is much harder than getting 3 kids to smile.
Last Saturday, we went and picked out a free puppy. He is 1/2 Lab and 1/2 Great Pyrenees. He is a very gentle and smart dog. He sleeps on the back deck and goes under the deck to relieve himself. He is not a big chewer and doesn't whine at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We let the kids name him and that was a comical conversation. Some names thrown out where: Bella, Boy Dog, x-ray, truck, ketchup, pickle, bark, and little dog. Luckily, Z said "Buster" and everybody fell in love with the name.
M LOVES Buster!! She checks on him every morning, plays with him, and makes sure that he has food. She checks on him several times through out the day and she always says goodnight to him b/4 her nap and bedtime. C has a love/hate relationship with Buster. He likes him when he isn't touching or licking him. Whenever Buster comes near him, he freaks out. C likes to pet Buster when he is distracted and the rest of the time he likes to stand far back and observe him. Z does not really care for Buster at all. I asked her if she was jealous of him and she said, "YES!!". I believe her. She will go outside, look at him, sigh, and come back inside. She tries to pet him but when he jumps at her or tries to lick her, she squeals and goes inside. It is so funny.
I'll try and get a better picture of him and hopefully post an update that says they all like him!!
