I'm a new mommy, well sort of!

I know I haven't posted in a bit and I'm mad at myself for that, but I actually have some exciting news that I want to share! I am a huge animal lover, especially with dogs. I have Dakota, who is a two year old female Labrador Retriever Terrier mix. My family rescued her as a two month old puppy. However, I have been thinking about adopting a dog with my own money for a while now and on Saturday, I finally did!

Say hi to Carter!

I named him after my favorite hockey player, Jeff Carter, who is on my favorite hockey team, the Los Angeles Kings. He is 8 weeks old and I was told he is a Labrador Retriever mix of some sort. I think it might be German Shepherd and/or Dachshund. All I know is that he's a cutie with a sweet face! He looks bigger in pictures, but he's only around 5 or so pounds. I got him through an awesome pet shelter that is no kill. He had a brother, who was also very cute but the kisses that Carter gave me when I picked him up melted my heart. So far he has been such an awesome little guy. He is playful, gives plenty of kisses, and is so curious! When he wants my attention, he cries and even sometimes when I leave the room. I'm a sucker for that. Dakota isn't sure what to think of him, she might be slightly jealous. She's curious about him but is still taking her time to warm up to him. Carter on the other hand wants to play with her. He's been trying to get her to chase him.

Right now Carter is potty training, so he's been sleeping in his big pen at night, but I can't wait until he's housebroken so he can sleep in my bed with me! He actually had his first accident in my bed, but I wasn't even mad, especially with a face like his. I'm in love.
