Tally has been the sweetest puppy these past ten days. He is a great little sleeper, loves to play and snuggle, and is getting good at taking short walks! His one little "vice" (aside from chewing of course) is wanting to have someone sit next to his crate while he falls asleep. Which we totally enable and secretly love.
He went on his first camping trip this weekend, so there will be more pictures to come of that later this week, but for now, he are some pictures from his first few weeks of life and his first week with us!
Confession/FairWarning: I realize that the pictures are a bit excessive, but I really wanted to remember his first week with us! ;)

Picking Tally up on June 15th:
Such a snuggler!
He slept for almost the full two hours! He would wake up, climb up to my face to kiss it, and then reposition himself and fall back asleep. Such a sweetie!
The goody basket from the breeder- so many great toys!
Checking out his new home
First nap in his crate- so glad he loves his crate!
Getting used to his bed after a couple days (he was afraid of it at first!)
Somebody went exploring in the fire place :)
A visit from Jackson and Emmie!
Love Jackson's face in this one ;)
First bath after his first mud puddle
Vacuuming the house is a workout with this little guy!
Seeing his reflection in the glass of our entertainment center...
...and getting scared of his cute little face :)
He loves to play with his toys on our laps
First Vet Visit
Getting his heart checked :)
Sweet buddy passed out in Nonna's arms!
Loves his Nonna :)
After the vet, we met my sister and her boys at Souper Jenny (Tally's on the bottom left- he slept the whole time!)
Noah loves snuggling with Tally and holding him :)
Matt and I thought we would go on a nice walk right when we got home from the breeder- we quickly realized that the little guy could barely run in the backyard without taking a break! On his first day, he could only chase us back in forth in our backyard for three laps before laying down. So we waited about 5 days before taking him on his first walk. ;)
First time wearing his collar
He didn't really get the leash
When he gets nervous, he likes to get in small spaces- so he picked T's stroller ;)
Since he had never been in the street (he spent his first 5 days playing in our backyard and our laundry room!), I decided to carry him for a little stretch to get him used to being on the other side of our house
At first, he only moved when I bent down really low and walked close to him- and then he started to figure it out!
Sweet buddy made it to the end of our street and then decided he was DONE. Andrea and Steph actually had to pick up the stroller so I could get him out because he wedged himself under there so well!
Aunt Andrea ;) carried him the rest of the way- I think he was thankful.
Worn out :)
He couldn't wait to get in his crate after his first walk!
Snuggles with Aunt Step ;)
Visit with Jackson and Karen
Jackson shared his milk (don't worry, we washed the cup) ;)
And Tally shared his cage. ;)
Other pics from his first week
Little buddy follows us everywhere- even here. :)
This is the other place he sits in the bathroom- right under the sink
Loves to snuggle while he plays
Walking with his pine cone :)
To play or to sleep? Always a toss up mid-morning. :)
He's already grown so much in a week! Wish we could keep him this size forever!
