New puppy in town

We've welcomed a new addition to our family! His name is Jack. He's a 3 year old chihuahua and weighs a whopping 8.5 pounds. That's huge compared to my tiny little Andy. We've had Jack for a month now and he's come a long way! When we first adopted him, he did not know how to walk on a leash, nor was he potty trained. But worse than all that, he'd never know what it was to be loved.
He spent his first three years locked in a cage, used as a breeder dog in a puppy mill. When he first arrived in our house, it seemed like he didn't know what to do with himself ... I could see him thinking - What? all this space to run and play in with all the food I want to eat! Yah!!!
The road was bumpy at first, but Jack's coming along nicely. He's almost totally potty trained now and he sleeps in our bed with us every night. Now we have to get a king-size bed to accomodate me, BF, Andy and Jack, but we wouldn't have it any other way.
