Well, sort of....
|All together now, awwwww!!|
About a month ago, my daughter sent me a photo of a cute baby dog with the message "Got you a grandpuppy!"
|Sprawled in the grass|
She and her boyfriend had adopted a golden retriever puppy and named him Jack. Last weekend I got to meet the fluffy bundle of energy in person.
|Love his fluffy puppy fur|
He was even more adorable than I imagined! I loved his tiny ears and nose, soft puppy fur, and laughed at his large paws.
|Jack looks cute when he runs|
Jack was especially comical when he tried to run. Looked like a gangly teenager.
|Playing with "mom"|
My daughter and her boyfriend are now experiencing the responsibilities that come with a new puppy. The potty training, the chewing of everything, playtime to burn the endless amount of energy...... (good preparation for future children - wink, wink)
|Adorable puppy eyes|
|Soon he will be too big to fit in my daughter's lap|
Although Jack's only about 25 pounds at 9 weeks, my daughter said he'll weigh 75-80 pounds full grown. It won't be long before he doesn't fit in her lap anymore!
|Jack loves chewing on water bottles|
In an effort to keep Jack from chewing on everything in her house, my daughter purchased tons of dog toys. What does he like the most? Plastic water bottles! And the little guy loves to sit in front of the refrigerator. He's already figured out where the food comes from.
|And he knows where the food comes from|
I had a great time playing with my new "grandpuppy." So much fun to have a dog around again. But, as any grandparent will tell you, the best thing about "grands" is when the going gets messy or tough - you can give them back! :)
