There is a new member in our little family!

We got a puppy! I have been begging Logan for a puppy since we got married and he finally buckled! Last Wednesday I asked Logan if we could go look at a puppy... I promised him that I wouldn't make him buy the puppy and all I wanted to do was look... Well we met the breeder at a gas station in Ririe and I tried my best to hide my excitement the whole way there. The moment I walked into the gas station and I saw the puppy I fell in love with it! Needless to say, Logan couldn't refuse me once he saw how attached I was and we took the puppy home with us that night! Our puppy is a Morkie (maltese-yorkie) and he is only 8 weeks old. He weighs 2lbs. 9oz. and is black and brown with little white spots on his back paws and chest! His name is Kalu. Logan picked the name from a common name on his mission in Africa. Kalu in Africa is the equivalent to "Carlos" here in the states (my parents just call him Carlos). Most of the time he is an angel, but he has his devilish moments too... For example, last night he jumped off of our bed while we were sleeping and decided that it would be a good idea to poop under the bed. You can guess that he was in A LOT of trouble when we woke up and found out what he did! Other than the occasional accident he "usually" goes to the bathroom where he is supposed to, doesn't bark, and knows just how to butter us up! He is a cuddle-bug and we can never stay mad at him for very long! We are so lucky to have him! Here are a few pictures we have of Kalu so far...

Playing with his new rope toy!

Getting caught chewing on the pillow.... he is so hard to be mad at!

Just hanging out!

His first bath... he is so little that the bathroom sink was the perfect size!

He didn't like bathtime very much...

I will post more pictures soon to keep you all updated with how he is doing!


  1. What a cute puppy! What did you guys ever decide to name him?! My vote is still for Diesel..... That story about your parents is very touching. It's so true that you can't sweat the small stuff (not one of my strengths)! See you at school ha ha!

  2. Your little puppy is so stinkin cute! How are you guys doing? How is school going? We miss you!

  3. Question is, where were you today missy?! haha You weren't there for Dr. B's class. I can't believe you would miss it... its a shame. hahaha
