Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas (as my Irish dad loves to say). It is another day of getting to know our new little guy. This was outdoors, and he was letting me know that he doesn't love the cold and he's not thrilled to walk away from his safe haven - our home. He is, after all, still a little dog.

The best Christmas present of them all - Shyla is willing to be on the same bed with Hachi!!!

And another cute look just for each of you....
I hope that you all are having a happy day.


  1. I have no idea why but each day when you show this little guy I end up with teary eyes. the one with Shyla did it today... those eyes are amazing and tell him he melts my heart and I don't like cold either.

  2. a super furst christmess to you newest member of da furmily and a wonderful feast for you all

  3. You are such a blessing, Shyla, and you are one cute puppy, Hachi. Happy Christmas to all of you♥

  4. Oh this is wonderful! Thank you for taking time to post a picture on Christmas morning - I checked just in case :)

  5. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!

  22. I've been gone all day. and it's almost time for bed.
    here I am opening the best present of the day!
    goodnight little one. this was your first Christmas!
    I think you could warm any Grinch heart out there! XOXO

  23. My 4-year old granddaughter wants to get us a puppy for Christmas. We have 3 cats, ages, 14, 10 and 5, and they don't really like their 'dog' relatives now, so I told her I'd rather not have a puppy. When I see Hachi, I'm almost tempted to tell her YES!

  24. No doubt he'll be running along side the big dogs in no time.

  25. Our first pup Loki- I remember carrying him away from the house and he would want back so badly that is how I taught him to walk on leash.

  26. What a sweet, sweet little face. Congratulations!!!

    Belated wishes for a very Merry Christmas!
