...our new puppy, Joseph Shmuley Biden--we call him Joe for short (we really call him Joe all the time, we just liked the rest of the names too so decided to tag them on for fun). We got him on Saturday at a rescue house in Stephens City, VA which is about two hours from our house. Right now, he weighs less than ten pounds and is about eleven weeks old. He was the runt of the litter and his brothers and sisters were picking on him so he's extra sweet.
So far he's been a very good puppy, except we can't get him to go to the bathroom--at all. We take him outside every hour and he looks at us and so we take him back inside and go through the whole thing an hour later. He had one accident in the house, which I can only surmise was a result of his bladder just being unable to hold it in for so long! Other than that, nothing has come out since we brought him home yesterday afternoon! I think this problem will resolve itself as soon as he gets used to our house, though, I'm not too worried (famous last words?). For more pics see my flickr.
