Our new bundle of Joy!

We have a new member of our family. Introducing Axel Hartrich!

He's a 5 month old labradoodle that we adopted from a rescue in Ohio. We made the journey to pick him up on Sunday, and he's now settling in well.

His first full day home wasn't a good one. His poor little nerves couldn't handle the transition, and he was sick all day long. The past two days have been much better, and we're starting to see some playful puppy behavior.

Since he's also a rescue, we have some work to do in order to get him comfortable in a family. We also have some work to do to get Hunter to like him!

I think Hunter is still waiting for him to go home.

It's taken us three days to come up with a name, and right now "Axel" is sticking. But who knows, maybe in a year I'll look back at this and think it's funny that we called Scout "Axel" for a few days!

Wow - I was a little panicked by the title - thought one of the ewes had lambed prematurely!
Glad you found Axel, I know getting another dog has been on your mind for a while, and you were just wondering when you'd find the right one. Hope Hunter gets used to him, and he settles in well, they look like a matching pair in the pics with their long ears and spotty legs. Hope to meet him soon, Hannah
