daddy and puppy

Nate loves his little boy. They are quite a pair. Both are very active and can be quite a handful. To be honest, I wasn't quite sure how it was going to work out with Toby, as he *is* a puppy (I haven't had one around in over 10 years), and is so active and hyper. He was trying my patience for awhile and I was stressed as to what to do with him to keep him busy and active and preoccupied so he wasn't bored and wanting to dig and tear stuff up. But having his cousins over a couple days a week and taking Toby to daycare a couple other days has really helped. We take Toby where ever we can with us, and we are all learning about each other and getting into a groove at home, so we are now getting along swimmingly (I always liked that word). 
I couldn't imagine my life without either one of them.
