Day 10 with Toaster: The TP episode

P.S. If you're thinking about getting a puppy, I strongly recommend having a good vacuum.


We're puppy serious. Toaster is finally here!

What could be more serious than a puppy? Here's a little video of Toaster's first night home. Serious as can be.

Toaster at 4 weeks

My name is Toaster, but I'm not a cylon.

Here's a pic of our soon-to-be new labradoodle. He's 4 weeks old and his name is Toaster (inspired by Battlestar Galactica). He'll be arriving at our home in a couple weeks.

You can follow updates at his new Twitter account @ToasterPup. Yes, he got over 400 followers in 24 hrs. What can I say, he's adorable.
