Memphis - 6 months old :)

Memphis turned 6 months old on the 4th of July! I can't believe that it has been that long. Anyways, Chris and I decided to buy him a big boy bed and start letting him sleep outside of his crate at night. He still isn't ready to be out of his crate during the day but at least this is a start. So once we got back from the lake house that holiday weekend we headed to the pet store. We got him a new collar, leash, bed, food, and even a new toy - Wow that was expensive. Luckily we shouldn't need to get him most of that again for a very long time. So I thought I would post some pictures of him and his new bed. Hope you enjoy!

One Year Anniversary!!

Chris and I celebrated our first anniversary together as a married couple yesterday. I can't believe that one year has already gone by. Wow how time flies when you are having a good time! We had an apartment full for the weekend, but once everyone left, Chris and I took some time and gave each other some cards and enjoyed some mini-eclairs, played with Memphis, then watched a movie together. It was a perfect anniversary! I can't wait to share many more together.

Leaving you with a picture of Chris and I on our anniversary from one of those photo booths! It was alot of fun!!

Meet Memphis!

On Friday, February 27, 2009, Chris and I drove to Dacula, GA to pick up our newest family member, Memphis. He is an 8 weeks old English Cream Golden Retriever and is doing really well with getting adjusted to his new home. I just can't believe at how much they can soak up in a short amount of time. I will say it hasn't been all great, especially the first night, but the better days drown out the bad ones. 

I was really nervous about crate training and just letting him cry himself to sleep, but in the 4 nights that we have had him it hasn't been too bad. He is really starting to like his crate and is getting really comfortable with it. That makes Chris and I very happy. He is sleeping about 4 hours at a time at night which I feel is really great! 

The past few days his personality is really coming out. I think we are going to have a very playful dog as he gets older. Right now, he loves to chase his tail and once he gets it he does this crazy somersault holding his tail. It is the funniest thing to watch!! I am so very excited to watch him grow and really see what kind of personality he really has. Chris and I are really blessed to have such a great puppy! 

Take a look at the slideshow that I made of Memphis on my sidebar.
