Randall

I'd like you to meet Randall:
We adopted him yesterday from the Humane Society; he's a Pomeranian and tiny (4.25 pounds!). He was one of the dogs from the Haven Puppy Mill, and is 1.5 years old. Apparently he was used as a stud. He's not used to people, though he's been exploring the house, and isn't scared of us, just a bit shy. He adores other dogs, however, so once he settles in, we'll probably start looking for a second dog.

I never thought we'd get a foo-foo dog, but this is why we ended up with one. David wanted a lap dog that can sit on him while he plays his video games, and Randall certainly fits the bill. Calvin enjoyed letting Randall snooze on his lap while he watched some TV last night, and he's sitting on my lap right now as I type. OMG, I'm probably going to end up with a little carrier and he can come with us to gymnastics practice (Calvin's coach brings his little dog to the gym every day -- they can play!).

Randall is so cute! And I'm so glad you got a rescued dog, but I'm not surprised that you did!

Awww... He is adorable! That is so great that you took in a rescued dog. He's one lucky little fellow! :)

Gee that guy looks just like the soccer coach I ran into a couple days ago...

Lap dogs scare me. I'm convinced they're trying to take over the world.

Scare me a lot...

Congrats! He's a beautiful dog and he looks completely adorable and content on that lap! We adopted both of our dogs from shelters as well, I think they love you that much more for rescuing them!
