Porter - Our New Puppy

On May 21st, Alex and I bought Porter...our first puppy! He is a Golden Retriever, born on March 24, 2010, and such a joy to have in our little family! We went to visit the litter when they were 6 weeks old...here are some pictures. There were 2 males and 4 females....we chose the bigger of the 2 males.
When Porter was 8 weeks old, my mom and brother went with me to go bring him home!

Porter is now 14 weeks old, he can stay dry for 8 hours at night, he goes on 2-3 30 minute walks each day, he loves to eat dirt and rocks, and plays fetch very well. Alex and I are teaching him to "sit", "come", "down", "wait"...and he is doing pretty well with those commands. Teething is the most challenging part...so I have lots of chew toys for him. Life is busier now with a little puppy in the house...but we love our new addition!
