Meet Hank the Tank

Can you see him.  He's not very big.  This is his second full day of living with us.  How do you think Piper likes him.  They are having so much fun.  He is rough with Piper.  But Piper is such a gentle soul.  So far Hank is quite the pup.  He potties outside.  When he can't he potties on a pee pad.  He did that all on his own.  Sleeping is going well.  I couldn't take the howling  when I put him in a crate, so he sleeps in a post office bin.  Hah.  We had so much mail they put it in this big ole plastic bin.  So I put a blanket in it.  He never cried when I put him in there last night.  A couple of times during the night.  Soooo....I tell him he is okay and I put my arm in the box.  He licks my hand and goes back to sleep.  He has gone all night both nights without an accident.  I know that this all could change.
He is two months and a Chorkie.  His mama was 6 pounds and a Yorkie.  His daddy was a four pound Cihuauhau .  I didn't see his dad.  I asked his owner if she was tricking me and he was a Dobbie.  She reassured me , hah
I couldn't wait to share the news any longer.  Yep, we are crazy.....our adult kids think so anyway.

Do you like the way we blocked the staircase.

What an adorable puppy!!! He does really well with his potty training. That's wonderful. I think he'll do just fine with Piper. Are you sure he can't fit between the posts on that fence? Hmmm.

My DIL just got a new kitty, and they are watching to see how it will fit in with the two older cats. It's so exciting having a new fur baby in the house. I wish you much happiness and joy with yours.

You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Aw, cute but would love to see a closer photo for a better look at your new fur baby. They sure do win our hearts.

He's so cute! There's something so special about the first day you bring a puppy home. they can be stressful but usually worth all the work. So glad to hear that he's been good so far.

aww new pup! How wonderful that he is already going potty outside. You know we have three dogs...I rescued them as puppies. They really filled the house with so much love and....lots of muddy paw prints.
