Welcome Scout!

Well, there’s a new member of the Parker family and his name is Scout. Friday night, I went with my parents to look at a puppy they were thinking about getting. In all honesty, I guess it was already decided that this little fella was going to come home with them, there was just the matter of getting all the paperwork completed and bringing him to his new home.

Saturday was my mom’s birthday and my dad grilled ribs. Our friends Naaman and Cheryl came over as did my grandparents and my brother and The Tide. I don’t think The Tide was too crazy about Scout. She growled at him when she was first sniffing of him while he was in his newly constructed play pen. Then for the rest of the night she pretty much ignored him. If Scout isn’t being held and there are a lot of folks in the room then he will whine because he wants some attention. I think The Tide was tired of his whining because when I asked her if she was ready to go home she bolted to the door rather quickly.

My dad build Scout’s play pen and at first it only had three sides with the back being placed against the hearth of the fireplace; but, Scout was a little escape artist and a third side had to be put on. He’s still working on his potty training and went pee on his pillow a couple of times while I was there on Saturday. I do not envy my parents on that potty training! Scout has a lot of energy and is going to be quite a handful for a while; but, hopefully he will bring my parents a lot of love and heal their sad hearts. Here are some photos…
