Yes. You read that right.

After a lot of thought and time spent searching (and maybe just a little persuasion on my part...) we finally welcomed a puppy into our little family!

Friends, meet Truckee.

She is a 2 month old German Shepherd/Retriever mix with a goofy smile, massive paws, and the sweetest heart.

We found her at our local animal shelter where she, and her brother and sisters, were taken after they had been dumped on the side of the freeway. As soon as I met her I knew she would fit right in.

Our cat, Pippy, seems to disagree and the cows are a little skeptical too.

But I'm sure they will become the best of friends.


Truckee is one smart cookie. She is catching on fast to everything we're starting to teach her, especially when there's food involved. A girl after my own heart.

She also sleeps like a champ. We're practically best buds already.

I can't wait to see what kind of adventures this little gal takes us on.

What are some things you love to do with your dog? Do you have any puppy training tips/advice to share?
