Walter and Alicia in the back seat on the way home from Walter's foster family.

We've welcomed a lovely new member of our family into our home. His name is Walter and he is a 2-3 year old Boston Terrier. We adopted him from the Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue on Sunday and have been having fun with him since then. He's quite a bright little dog, and we've had a pretty easy time getting him used to our house.

So far, one of the most exciting aspects of dog ownership (apart from the joy of carrying a little baggie of dog poop in your coat pocket, of course) is that he somehow learned to do this army crawl-type move. He does it when he's stretching in the mornings, or when he's trying to be very good (and thus stay laying down) and also get toward something (like his ball). It hilarious... He stretches his back legs out completely behind him and moves forward with his front legs. At some point we'll catch it on video and post it for everyone to enjoy.

Time to go for a walk!
