Puppy Cuteness!

I'm a grandma!

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

Of course I had a grand time following Jack with my camera, attempting to capture his cuteness - when he sat still long enough!  (Which didn't happen often)

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!  :)


  1. Adorable indeed - Golden Retrievers are great dogs. At 25 pounds he weighs more than both my dogs together!

  2. ...and it will grow up to be a BIG one.

  3. Cute grand puppy! Glad you got see him. Yep waiting for cooler weather next week!

  4. Jack is adorable! My heart is melting, he's so cute.

  5. Yeah, well, I hate to tell you...when he's 80 lbs...he'll still be a lap dog! Our Kelly is 8 years old, 95 lbs of Golden love...and she loves to curl up in our laps or next to us or wherever we are!!!

  6. Congrats on your new grandpuppy. I love Golden Retrievers, they are wonderful family dogs. Adorable photos! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and new week ahead. PS, thanks also for the comment on my blog.

  7. How precious! You are really going to enjoy that Grand-puppy!

  8. Awwwwww! Got to get him out hiking whenever you visit!

  9. Just the cutest little guy (for now) and I laughed at the comment that said they are still lap dogs fully grown! :-)

  10. Nice natured dogs usually. My pal had one growing up and it went everywhere we did as children, keeping us safe. It was a good swimmer too I remember. Always jumping into park ponds or the sea in summer after thrown sticks.

  11. Oh he is so cute. It's so much work but worth it. I wonder if you'll ever want a puppy again?

  12. Oh my gosh...he is adorable! Such a sweetie.

  13. Linda, I think Golden Retrievers are the best dogs! Your Grandpuppy is adorable and i know he will bring your family lots of joy for many years.

  14. Hi! He is very cute. I hope you would have nice days with this grandpuppy.

  15. What a splendid dog - and I'm really a cat kind of guy!
