Cooper holding Obi - he was about 1 month old at this point
I fell in love, and knew that this was the pup for us. He was fun, and fearless. (And I am not sure anyone can resist a black lab puppy- they are the cutest). So knowing we had a new family member, we agreed with Dave to come pick him up, after the pups six week shots. So we counted down the days until we were able to pick him up. Cooper had a play date with a friend, so Lauren and I headed down to Parker,CO to pick him up. I was a little worried he was going to be a handful, but thankfully he was still young enough that he tried out quickly and slept most of the way home.
Momma happy to have a dog again :) (he looks bigger here then he is due to the angle)
Kids VERY happy
So far he has been a really good dog. Other then being a BIG morning person..... 5 AM is the time to run around and bite EVERYTHING. He seems pretty calm, and will even let a large group of kindergarten pet and poke you. I know we are very happy to have a dog in the house, and I am thrilled the kids get to have a puppy, and a family dog while growing up. I just will be more thrilled about it once he no longer needs to get up at 3 AM to go outside.
He has already doubled in size, so we need to keep taking pics.
We are letting him go to sleep with the kids - too cute
Can see how much bigger he is now then when we picked him out :)
When we were picking out names, we were between Obi, Cash, and Cole. But the kids agreed with Obi, and I must admit Obi is fun to say:). When calling the vet to make his appointment, the attendant pointed out that his birthday (May 4) , is know as May the Fourth be with you, with Star Wars fans. So Obi was destined to be.
