We brought him home this afternoon! He was a real star on the drive home: he only cried for about 10 minutes before settling down in the cat carrier I was transporting him in. He slept for most of the 2.5 hour trip.
Raven wasn’t sure what to make of the boisterous new addition (it might take her a bit to make up her mind). The two older cats disappeared upstairs; Ollie kept a careful eye on him from halfway up the stairs, while Merlin thought it safer to wait things out in the bedroom. Charlie, who has never had any fear of dogs, was quick to say hello and start making friends. The puppy, meanwhile, was interested in everyone.
No name yet – it’s taken us a while in the past to settle on something that fit well, and I can’t imagine this little guy will be any different. :)
And if anyone is still interested in any of the puppy-fundraiser drawings (you can see what’s left at the post here), I’d be happy to hear from you!

The photo of the puppy in the “fish” bed is adorable!
Handsome little tyke! Big fun ahead.
Congratulations on your new little guy. He looks exhausted already. :)

He’s a cutie all right! I imagine we’ll have dogs for as long as we can care for them properly, but I think we’ve already had our last puppy. You two have fun with the newest addition to your family.
Too cute for words! Looks like a good addition to the home.
What a sweetie. I am sure he will get used to his new brothers and sisters soon. :)
I don’t think you could look happier. And that face, it’s a face that…everybody can love.
Aw, he’s looks like a perfect cuddle-muffin. Great photos!
Only a month late finally getting on top of my blog comments, but a big thanks to everyone for all your well-wishes and fawning comments for the puppy! He’s been settling in really well since arriving. He’s now basically housetrained and knows four commands (sit, down, shake-a-paw and come). The cats have decided he’s maybe not going to kill them after all, and Raven’s really warmed up to him and will play with him regularly. He’s been a great personality match for her – absolutely fearless, so he wasn’t put off at all by her initial wary snaps when he first arrived, and he can take a real beat-down while they’re playing. All in all, we’re really happy with him! And now, finally, I can start getting back to a normal routine… I have a lot to catch up on.
