We have a new puppy!

We recently got a new puppy! My sister thought that this would be a good time to get one since she'll be at home during the day. His name is Charlie, and he's a very cute border collie.

Our other dog (Pom-pom) is a bit jealous of the attention Charlie's been getting, and has been a bit crabby lately. She growls at him when he tries to get her to play. Her mood has gotten slightly better over the past week or two, though.

One interesting thing is that Charlie won't fetch; he'll get the ball when you throw it, but then he'll walk off with it and won't bring it back. We've had retrievers before and I guess the nature to fetch is built-in. Oh well, at least he's really good at tug-of-war!

Check out all of the pictures of Charlie.
