George Frederick Ritchie III

Our new puppy.  There actually were no George Fredericks the First or Second, but the Third just seemed to add some extra pizazz to his name :).  He weighs a pound and a half and is the cutest little thing.  We’ve had him for a few weeks now and it has been fun to watch him get used to life.  I’ve actually been impressed at how quickly he has caught on to potty training, etc.  He’s a smart little guy (although Nicholas laughs and says every dog owner thinks their dog is smart) and he has been invited to attend my Bible study next week.  He will probably come with me in my purse  :).   How funny!  So different size-wise than the collies with which I grew up.
