This is Baby Beau, our new family member (as Kayleigh calls him). We brought him home yesterday afternoon. I know it seems really soon given that Frodo left us Sunday. Our hearts are hurting so much, we know we are a dog family, and waiting just didn't seem right for us. We had a great afternoon of getting used to one another. Lots of laughs with the silly guy. We got him peeing outside, WOOT WOOT! When bedtime rolled around their were still lots of tears and big hugs and cries over Frodo from us all, but somehow little Beau made it all a bit easier to bear. I was nervous about how his first night would go. But we had him sleeping in the crate next to our bed quite well, with minimal whimpering, and he got up to pee just fine in the night and morning. Honestly, last night felt just like I did when Kasey came home and spent her first night sleeping next to me in her crib. I was on high mommy alert last night. This morning we played hard, and now we are cuddling on the couch while Beau sleeps. Its going to be a good day.
