Today we are introducing our new pack member, Nelson! He comes from a music litter so his fancy pants name is Ethos Let’s Go Crazy, from a famous Prince song. He just came to live with us this week, so we are all adjusting.
Nelson was born on January 18th this year. He is one of the eleven puppies born to Sweedie and Crooner. Of course, he is from the same breeder the rest of us come from in Missouri, just different parents. We don’t know which one he is in this pile. The photo is from right after they were born.
Mom calls him a little lunker because he is solid and heavy. Right now he is a real mom’s boy but we see each day that he is feeling more comfortable here and he is doing more things without Mom being right there with him.
He enjoys the yard and thankfully we have had better weather this week. We all love to run and he tries to run with us, but he is not fast enough. Actually, he looks rather goofy when he runs.
Our new pack member seems to have some big paws as well. They are not as big as Olivia’s jumbo pillow paws, but they are big and soft. He enjoys showing them off when he struts around the yard.
Mom has started him on some sports already and he seems to enjoy that. His attention span is about zero, so practices are short and sweet. Nelson does tons of sniffing around the yard and the house on his own, so we think he will be a good sniffing hound.
We don’t have a family photo just yet as we are all adjusting and since Nelson won’t sit still, it is impossible. You know we will post more photos on social media and on the blog as we take them. Now we have to get back to learning to live with a boy for the first time!
