Oh yeah... and we got a dog

D O G spells dog.  And we got one - Smoke.  Everyone thinks maybe boxer mix, but he's mostly a Mountain Curr (or Treeing Tennessee Brindle - a special breed descending from the Curr).  Mountain Currs are Southern dogs, not usually seen up here in Yankee land.  But he seems to be adjusting well to living in Jersey so far.

 Favorite game - tug o war.

 Davin and Smoke playing nicely (for once)
Just so cute.

Smoke was his name from the rescue shelter.  It seemed to have stuck.  We thought it was cute until I told my teacher one day... "I'm so excited. I'm going to go home and play with smoke."  Hum... maybe that didn't sound so good.  (That being said, with two scientists as parents... I wouldn't be surprised if one day, I did come home and play with different types of smoke - and not the dog!)

It is okay to play with Smoke (the DOG); but, please don't play with smoke (the "not dog") -- you might get hurt and we don't want that. By the way, are you and Davin good at taking care of Smoke (I bet you can be)??? We are sure it would help both your parents with everything they have to do each day; so, help us much as you can...

At least Smoke doesn't chase the squirrels around or try to "tree" them!... As he grows out of puppydom maybe he'll stop chewing up YOUR toys and learn which toys are his to play with. And as you get bigger and Smoke gets more control, you'll be able to hold his leash on walks.. but be careful, 'cause he gets excited and can really pull hard! I know he likes those treats you give him. Remember to tell him how good he his even when you don't have a treat.
