Meet Oliver

Bean received one early Christmas present.  This present came a week before Christmas.  Santa had a hard time wrapping this one and keeping it hidden so he gave us the okay to go ahead and give it to her early.

We'd like to introduce you to the newest member of our family.

This is Oliver.

Oliver is a lemon beagle.  We got him a week before Christmas and he was six weeks old when he came to live with us.  He is very sweet and loveable.  He likes to nibble on us and will cuddle up with us to take his puppy naps.  We call him "Ollie" for short.

Bean was taking a kiddie nap in her car seat when Oliver first arrived.  He couldn't believe that anyone could sleep through his introduction so he promptly woke her up.  She first opened her eyes, looked right at Ollie and then threw her arm around his neck to put him in a headlock and rolled over with him tailing right behind - still in the headlock.

Once she woke up she warmed right up to him.  "Puppy! Puppy! Puppy!"  She was instantly in love.

Oliver has brought us tons of laughs and love already.  His little personality is beginning to shine.  The only challenge we've had so far is the same everyone has with a new puppy and that's house training.  I haven't had to house train a doggie since 1997!  I think I've forgotten all I ever learned.  But we'll get there.  I sure hope we get there.  LOL
