New Chessie Puppy

As most of you know, our beloved Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Kelly, died this summer on Beaver Island.  We decided our house was too empty without a dog.  Well, now we have our hands full with a brand new Chesapeake Bay Retriever puppy!  She is 8 weeks old and has been with us for 5 days.  Above is a video of her chasing her water bowl around.  She didn't like it when it got turned over.  And then we found out she knew how to bark, sort of!  

Her name is Niko - named after a shipwreck near Beaver Island, Michigan.

We'll take this one!  This was at the breeder's house and we kind of gravitated towards this little girl.

 Her favorite toy is the squeaky frog we got from the Humane Society.  She loves it!

 These two photos show her little mouth which I think is hilarious!  Looks like someone took a stitch and pulled it too tight!  I guess it is probably her jowls which she will grow into.

 Yes, she gets to lay on the couch but she is being crated.  Or she is learning to be crated!
 One of her favorite poses.  She will run and chase her toys and then all of a sudden stop like this!  Or she will fall asleep.
