slacker mama said...

So. Freaking. Cute.

At 9 weeks, I assume that Murphy still has that "new puppy smell"?

Congrats, Ashleys!

What a cutie!!! Love him. Congrats!!!

Ashley said...

Thanks guys!

Yeah, I love him and he does have that yummy new puppy smell. He's also super snuggly.

Rebecca, I absolutely can do your birth announcements. Seriously, email me when you're ready and we'll figure it out.

Cake, actually all 3 of those Petfinder puppies are available, this was the local one from the paper. Go get that second one! It's the second cutest dog ever I think. It belongs in movies it's so cute.

I didn't get to pick him out or see him first, TOTAL surprise, but a really good one.

Congratulations on your new addition! He's such a cutie! I'm very envious to hear about the puppy smell, too. He's adorable - much cuter than most of the pups I've seen on Cute Overload.
