Well our new springer is now home with the family and fitting right in! Seems smart, at 8 weeks he uses the bathroom outside, and retrieves EVERYTHING!! If you throw it, expect it back. Wife was getting the kids changed and ready for bed and tossed a pair of socks over by the stairs for the kids to take down to the laundry, she goes back to putting PJ's on the youngest and a couple minutes later looks over to find the pup standing next to her waiting patiently for her to take the dirty socks from his mouth.
The hard part was finally "meeting" the dog, I called the wife on "skype" (a internet video chat program) and she answered it with MY DOG sitting in her lap.. He looks right at home too, wonder if I am going to be shopping for a new MY DOG in the future, since it sure looks like she is stealing this one from me!!
I will post some pics as soon as I get them (hopefully tomorrow!)
