We had family in town last month, and our niece took some pics of the shibes with her iPod.  She sent sent me some to post on the blogs.  The top one she describes as “a cute picture of Monty not interested in what Petunia’s doing!”

She also sent a little photo story that I posted on Petunia’s blog.

Monty likes to crawl under the couch where Petunia can’t follow him.  It’s not easy to pull him out, but it turns out there’s no need.  Call his name, and he’ll come wiggling out every time—right into the path of the Miss Petunia freight train!

This was our first visit! Such a little cutester.

There are three pups in this picture.  Can you identify whose legs are whose? (Monty’s the one on the left.)

I’m actually not sure which one is Monty here.  I’m pretty sure the one in the middle is his sister (no beans over her eyes), so he must be one of the other two. :P

Montgomery the Pup (12min) - On the day we brought home Monty, we paid a visit to my parents’ house.  My dad made this video of the event. Next up, baby pics!

Meet Monty!

There’s a new little fuzzy in the house, and Petunia is very excited to have him around. Montgomery “Monty” Wenceslas, an 8-week-old black and tan shiba puppy, joined our household on Sunday, and so far, everything’s going quite well.

His arrival was a surprise for some of our extended family, so I’ve had to resist posting about him so far.  Now that the pup’s out of the bag, we’ll post some pics from his early days, as well as the super cute puppy playtime that’s going on in our house all day long right now.
