Meet, Barnacle! (Barney)
He is a 6.5 - 7 week old black lab mix. He's adorable and gets into everything and has basically insisted that we puppy proof the apartment. We're still working on it, so far we've lifted the cables off the floor. But, soon we'll get twist ties and things to make it 100% safe.
We bought food, a tiny leash, a tiny collar, tiny toys and tiny bones. His crate, however is big, because he will be bigger one day. He'll be crate trained and potty-trained (hopefully soon).
My husband wanted to get one very bad and I want a kitten very bad. But, when he said one of the reasons he wanted one was so I wouldn't be alone when he leaves for Germany in two months, I conceded because it's indescribably cute that he's worried about my being alone. I'm a sap. Anyway, I'll have a kitten one day. For now, I have a puppy to wrangle.
