Here he is: Prince Charming!

I had a heck of a time taking a photo of Tyke, because every time I put the camera in front of my face, he jumped up at me to investigate what I was doing. The rest of the time he was running around the living room, absolutely not holding still. so I only caught pieces of him, like the rear end of him or his head in movement. So this is the best I could do, but it gives you a good enough idea of what he looks like, I think. Like a teddy bear.

But let's not forget the most important dog in the household and that is Jesker. I do want to include a photo of him.

This photo was taken before the last time he was sick and before he lost all the weight. It was still on my camera, so it was a new one to me too. Jesker always knows when his photo is being taken and looks very demure when it is.

It's interesting taking two dogs for a walk on the leash and juggling the poop baggies too. You need to be quite handy for it. I wonder how Laurie does it wrapped up for the Minnesota winter as she is?

I need to take a nap. I haven't slept enough yet. I'm keeling over from lack of sleep.

Have a good day!

He is adorable! But so is Jesker, of course. :)

Have a good nap! Just woke up from one myself.

Awwwwwww... they are BOTH beautiful! Yes, I can just imagine you will have your hands full (literally!) when it's time for a walk now!

Hilarious about the fact you were getting photos of his rear as he dashed about! :)

Hi Nora. Tyke is such a cutie! I'm all in favour of teddy bear type creatures obviously!

And lovely to see poor old Jesker too.

I hope Tyke lets you have a bit of sleep soon!

Adorable, is he chocolate?

When will you find time to rest now? More than one dog adds a different dimension to a household. Enjoy.

They're such good-looking boys, your two! Tyke looks so mischievous that you'll be kept running for a while, I think. At least Jesker is calm and well-behaved. Thanks for posting the photos!

lord, irene, this is so much to absorb all at once! i've been so busy i haven't read your blog for a few days, and suddenly there's a tumor and a new dog and bone rivalry and face licking and oh my gosh.

i am SO GLAD you got tyke. and i am so sorry about jesker! but i think you're right that tyke's presence will give him the strength to get better for a while.

ps and i can tell you that walking two dogs in the minnesota winter is a great trick. especially in the snow and on ice.
