Meet Moab!

This is our new puppy, Moab!

She is a 7 1/2 week old golden retriever.

We got her from a family in Sandy that bread their 8-year-old male, named Gunnar, with their 1-year-old female, named Loddie. There were seven puppies in the litter; 4 females and 3 males. We think we got the pick-of-the-litter!

We picked her out 2 weeks ago, she was only 5 1/2 weeks old. We had to wait until this week to bring her home, so we picked her up on Wednesday.

She's already responding to potty training and coming when she's called (not so much to her name yet, but coming nonetheless). She's been playing fetch with us since the first night and she really likes her toys! Everything has to go in her mouth! She's got really sharp little teeth! Our first two nights haven't been as bad as I thought they'd be. She wakes up about every 2 hours and needs to go outside. So far only two oops's (none during the day).

The cats don't like her yet, but they have shown a lot of interest, especially when she's asleep.

They don't like it when she gets too close or when she barks at them. There's been moments of hissing and arched backs, but no swats.

We can't wait to introduce her to everyone, especially our dog friends!
