I posted a little while ago about really wanting a puppy - we got one! He's an 11 week old chihuahua / mini pinscher mix. We named him Zeus Almighty "our last name".

And it really has been a good bonding experience with the step kids. They're in love with him, and it's such a big "family thing" we did together (they picked him out and helped come up with the name). I feel like it helped us make progress towards becoming a family - or at least more towards me feeling like it is one!

The last photo is Zeus playing with a dog that we're baby sitting right now.

He's a cutie!

The kids love our dog. Except he chews everything. But, he's a sweet boy, so we'll keep him around ;)

Aww, yeah, I'm sure our puppy will be like that! What kind do you have?

A chocolate labrador. 

The kids insisted on naming him Dumbledore.

I have decided this is the dog I want. Is he going to stay this small?

I think so! He might get a little bigger but not much. He's a toy chihuahua mixed with mini pinscher, so both breeds are pretty small. We really wanted a chihuahua mix so it wouldn't have the pointy eared, yappy characteristics that a lot of pure bred chihuahuas have.

We found him on Craigslist, I'd look there!

I think everyone needs a dog. They are good for your soul :)

(I type this as our dog is snuggled up in bed next to me, LOL)
