Our friends Brian and Jacki are playing foster parents for Cares, Inc. for the cutest ‘little’ puppy ever! His name is Haise and he is currently 12 weeks old. I used quotations around the word little because at 12 weeks old, this gorgeous Golden Retriever is 27 pounds! Not so little for a baby, but oh my goodness, he is the cutest, sweetest puppy ever.
Robert and I went to visit Haise, and Brian and Jacki, on Saturday (after learning the sad reality that Indian restaurants close at 3pm…boo). He certainly lacks that crazy, energetic puppy-syndrome that most puppies have and generally doesn’t really care about people and loves to lay in the shade. We threw him his frisbee a few times, which he was lackadaisical about retrieving, and gave him lots of belly rubs and Robert squished his face a few times.
They also had some gorgeous blooming trees in their backyard that I had to get a few pictures of…
Gorgeous blooms on their Dogwood trees
Weeping Willow in the corner of the yard…such a pretty tree…
But let’s get serious, back to the puppy. He is so photogenic (and responds very well to whistles…) Here are some shots I got of sweet Haise:
Look at that face…

I wanted to smuggle him home.

He got in trouble for playing in the mulch.
Jackie is blogging about her puppy fostering at http://fosterpuppyparents.blogspot.com/ where you can read more about what Haise is getting into and keep up with his growing and learning. Check it out!
I mean, who doesn’t love a puppy? Now to get Robert on board… :)
