A new addition to our family: Cheeto!

That’s right, we finally made good on a promise for Oliver’s birthday to get him a dog.  He was becoming impatient with how long it was taking to find a dog online, so on Jan 3 we hopped into the car and took a trip to the Oregon Humane Society to meet some dogs.  After meeting two potential matches, the first turned out to be pretty sensitive to fast movements and touching her feet/tail and the second was a pretty cute Chihuahua who already had two people in line to adopt him.  Our third and final meeting was with Cheeto who had just been put up for adoption minutes before we arrived.  And here he is:

Oliver and Cheeto

Cheeto is a 1 and 1/2 year old Chihuahua/Terrier mix and has fit right in with our family.  He ended up at the Humane Society with a broken pelvis/leg that had healed incorrectly.  He underwent surgery to repair it as much as possible, but he still doesn’t use one of his hind legs all of the time.  It doesn’t seem to hurt and sometimes he does walk on it, and it certainly doesn’t slow this little guy down at all.  He has tons of energy and loves to play with us and his toys.  From the get-go he fell in love with Jen and loves to snuggle in her lap. He and Oliver have been bonding and playing so things are working out great!  We’re all so happy to have little Cheeto in our lives.
