Welcome Home Rook

I know, I haven't posted in over a week, sorry. We've been really busy with out latest edition to the Haug Family. Her name is Rook (like the chess piece) The animal shelter were we adopted her named all of her litter-mates after chess pieces. 

After having this little noodle in our lives I must say it is the closest I'd like to get to having kids for awhile. She is a lot of work, but totally worth it.
She has grown since her first day at home. Her collar looks a little saggy on her in this picture. That has since changed. 

However, yesterday, she learned who was boss in this house. Hamlet quickly taught her that he's in charge. Didn't hurt her, but gave her a few pow's to the face. Didn't stop her for long though. 


Tom and I call this her crazy face!! haha. 

I have to say, probably my favorite, when she's sleeping! haha. And yes, that is a sheep next to her, she has 3!!

She is actually older than we thought. Almost 15 weeks! WOW! Anyways, she is doing great! We has our first outing on Saturday, and everyone just loved her-kept asking what kind of dog she is, of course we have no idea-all of her siblings are different, gold, collie, black, curly with white. So here it is. Lab-collie WOOKIE! mix! ROOKIE THE WOOKIE! (she has this bark that sounds like a wookie-rather funny)

Mummy and Daddy are really curious if you will have sticky-up ears or flop downs. Her ears do point up sometimes-so we shall see. She has also learned that Night-Night means times to go into her crate. Sits before she is fed, good-girl when she goes outside, and off on couches and people-well sort of. 

Tom has been the best Daddy to her, it's funny to see him cause he wasn't really sure of a dog until her, I think she melted his heart :)
