Thanks for all your great name suggestions! Fergus was definitely the most popular name. Jean's comment saying "he looks like a Fergus" sums it up nicely. So Fergus it is.
Now I will make you a promise. This is not going to turn into a dog blog. North of 49 will continue to be a blog about absolutely nothing and everything just like it has been since its beginning. But what I can't promise you is that a few puppy pictures and posts won't slip in now and again. Fergus is just so darn cute and so hilarious it would be impossible not to brag about him on occasion.
So as long as this is a puppy post I might as well slip in a few more pictures. This is Fergus with his Angry Bird toy. He loves attacking it and carrying it off to his basket. (Well, really that is Jenny's basket but we don't seem to be able to convince Fergus of that fact.) Then he promptly collapses and falls asleep from all the excitement.
Like I said last time, it is definitely a dog's life around here.
