Please allow me to introduce.....



Our sweet little *Luke* - the newest addition to our family!!!

He is a 7 week old Boxer puppy and let me tell you - all the Ledlow-Girls are in love with him - LOL!!!

Some of you probably remember that we had lost our almost 14 year old Boxer *Rico* in April and I still miss him so much!!! But I guess my family was ready to move on and I'm such a *SUCKER* when it comes to puppies - LOL!!!

This little guy reminds me so much of *Rico* - same colors and he is also *stinkin'* cute!!!

We were able to have *Luke* yesterday evening. He is the biggest (11 pounds) out of the litter and he was completely weaned of his momma. Thank goodness his parents are our neighbors... so if we'd had a problem we could have called...

Little *Luke* is very good in letting us know when he has to go outside. We played so much that he slept very good last night...we'll see how things go tonight???






I have to admit it feels great to have a a friend around again!!!

Let me know what you think of little *Luke*???

Thanks for stopping by and for letting me share the excitement with you!!!

Wow, glad you didn't post a card AND a puppy on one post or I would be so rude to say "your pup is soooo much cuter than your card" ha ha!! He is adorable! I love dogs but I LOVE puppies the most. He's such a cutie. Have fun!! I just got done with potty training... I think... knock on wood :)

Shirley said...

Silke, Luke is just adorable. Love the brindle boxers. I can tell he is going to be one spoiled boy. Just looking at him makes me want another baby boxer. Tee Hee, like I need another one to go with the 4 I already have. Congratulations on your sweet babt boy.

Simone said...

Oh Silke,
Luke sieht ja so süß aus. Und weich ist er bestimmt auch. Total knuffig der Kleine.
Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum neuen Familienmitglied. Und viel viel Spaß mit Luke.
Love Simone

Oh, Luke is so cute! We lost our 14 year old Springer, Kali, in March, but we were anticipating that. So, last summer we got Lizzie and that was a godsend after Kali's departure. Puppies and dogs bring so much to a family. You can see my dogs here. Good luck with Luke!

Alyssa said...

He is adorable! I love boxers but my husband wouldn't let me get one b/c he says they're too hyper! So what did we get? A rottie! I swear she's like the cartoon character bugs that get that little static electricity thing between their antennae. KWIM? Crazy, hyper and zany she is! :o)
