Quick Update: Carter

I realized that it’s been a while since I provided an update on how Carter is doing.  He is approaching seven months old now and has gotten so big.  Here is a link to the post from his first day with us.

His eyes are doing great and his personality is starting to flourish.  He is not afraid to bark when he wants any of his brothers’ toys/treats/whatever.  The area near the back of his mouth scrunches up to form a small downward angle to his mouth…making him look like an “old man”.  We have been joking that when he looks at us and just randomly barks, it’s like the old grandpa yelling at kids to get off his lawn.  We of course get in on the fun and let him know that we aren’t on his yard and to stop being rude.  It’s so cute!

Here is a picture of him taken just a few days ago.

Update: Carter, post-surgery

Carter went to the vet Friday to get neutered and also have his “cherry eye” removed from both eyes.  Luckily everything went well and he’s back home, resting with his brothers.  Below is one of the first pictures we have of him where we can see his pretty eyes unobstructed.  He’s not a fan of the cone but I’m not sure how many dogs truly enjoy the plastic neck tie.  Luckily he only has to wear the cone for a short time.

Welcome Home Carter

We are proud to announce that we have another addition to our household.  His name is Carter and he is an English Cream Dachshund.  He is absolutely adorable and already has us wrapped around his paw.  We adopted him from the great folks at Chapman’s Dachshund Rescue.

Carter is now 11 weeks old and happy to have three new brothers.  His brothers however have taken a little longer to warm up to him.  We are finally at the point where they will all chase each other around the house and it’s “playing” rather than “pick on the new guy”.

Here are a couple of pics of Carter:
