Meet Jax

I have fallen behind, but for good reason....we got a puppy.  We have had him almost a week, now...I can't believe it!  But with my youngest still afraid to walk around the pup, potty training, and being wife, mother, and everyday activities, it has been a little bit harder to sit at the computer for long periods of time that aren't a few minutes.

Jax, what a puppy!!  And I mean that in a happy owner kind-of-way.  He is so good and so calm for being a pup.  So on with his stats, he is a goldendoodle (half golden retriever, half poodle), 13 weeks old, and as of last week weighed 16 lbs (they estimated his full grown weight to be 80 lbs, so we will see).  He looks more retriever, but has yet to shed...I have given him 2 baths and try to brush him every other day or so, and have yet to see any hair (yay, for the poodle in him, exactly what I wanted).  His personalty is very much both dogs...very much wants to please, and loves the boys, even when that are playing with his ears or in his face (actually that is just Brayden), and loves to fetch a ball, but has to be in the mood....all part of the retriever.  He is also very smart, so far training him is easy (knock on wood it continues), very calm, loves to be where you are, but also very independent.

We couldn't have picked out a better dog for our family.  We love our Jax!
