Meet Jack


So far, so good! We made it home with Jack about 6pm, and he was very curious about his new surroundings. He sniffed out every nook and cranny in our house and yard. I must admit that it is so nice not to have a puppy. No barking, no training, and no chewing.

The kids had a great time playing with him, and I heard much laughter and giggling. Music to this mama's ears!

I tried to get more photos, but Jack didn't really want to sit very still. He was much too busy checking us out.

Thanks for your prayers today...for us and for Abigail. She was such a sweet girl, and her family was sweet too. They even invited us to stay for dinner! We politely declined because Will, Sarah, and Abbey were so anxious to get home and play with Jack.

Oh Mer ~ he is just SO sweet! I'm so glad you've found the right dog. He'll be so much fun for the kids while they're home on Christmas break ~ he'll probably be walked around the block so many times his poor little legs will get tired!

Blessings,
Trish

So glad everyone is home safe and sound. And he's just beautiful. Don't you love to stroke their soft ears? I do think beagle's have the sweetest little faces, but then I'm a little bit beagle-biased!

So glad Abigail was fine...continuing to pray for her little heart.

So...where does Jack sleep? (Daisy likes to sleep in bed with me--under the covers if she can fanagle it!)

I'd forgotten how big Beagles can be. Almost thou persuadest me to get a dog...almost.

Oh he is just adorable!! Thanks for leaving the comment on my blog. I may have to bring my husband over here to show him just how cute Jack is! Also, so he can see how happy your kiddos look. Sometimes it takes a little guilt! ;o)
