He arrived on November 16, and weighed only 7 pounds, 8 ounces. Here is what he looked like then:
Right off, they loved playing together:
Charley is the best puppy in the world. We put up a play yard in the bedroom, and in it have a bed, a fleece throw that Alyson got him and that he loves, and the crate he came in. I have the door open to the crate, and Charley uses it to put his toys in the crate. Every night he cleans up his area and puts all his toys away.
He is also a very clean puppy, and screams if there is a mess in his area. He'll yell until it is cleaned up. But he's all boy, and he will also yell just to be annoying. He plays with a cuz, or a rope toy, and his favorite game is tug of war with one of Rory's toys, with a gray Webkinz cat the current object of choice. In the pictures you can see him getting bigger, partly because he eats immediately when I put his food dish down.
Here are some more pictures of the puppy.
