Puppy Love...Meet Edgar

I know exactly what you're going to say...

I'm totally insane...and at this point I'd totally agree with you.

A new puppy!

And he's soooo cute!

And he's number FOUR in our house...we already have Sophie (10 yrs), Pheobe (8 yrs), and Silas (5 yrs).

Can I just explain myself?

We need to have at least two dogs at all times living out in the canyons with all the various critters about...namely rattlesnakes. Sophie and Pheobe are definitely getting older, and Pheobe has a major case of arthritis at the moment.  If anything was to happen to these dogs, Silas would be alone...definitely not a good idea...especially against those darn coyotes!

Name:      Edgar
Breed:      Golden Retriever
Birthdate:  January 16, 2012
Weight:     12 lbs, 1 oz.
Loves:       Balls, ropes and rolling in the grass
Issues:      Making friends with the other dogs and putting rocks
                    in his mouth from the backyard

congratulations. GOldens are great dogs. Our heather was a real charmer. Now we have our Yellow and he is just as great. Not an aggressive bone..

I have 4 labradors, and 3 cats. But my dogs are closer in age, so in 10-15 years from now, I won't be with one dog and the other one only 5 or 6, so maybe you need to go get another little one so you will still have two when this one is old too. Our labs are 4.5, 3, 3, 2. The cats are 10, 6mos, 6 mos. Can't have just one cat either. The other cat I had that would also be 10, died at the age of 6 from kidney failure. Then my daughter had her two living her for 3 years. She moved them out in February, so I went and got my own 2. :D

He's precious! You are absolutely NOT crazy! I'd have a pack of dogs myself if I had the room. I love Edgar!!!!!!
