New to this board and new with a puppy!

Hi everyone!  I have been lurking here for a little bit, getting some pointers and figured I would introduce myself.  This is our first pet and I am so excited, I always wanted a dog growing up, apparently it took me 28 years to get one!

We got our little puppy last Sunday, in 4 days, he is doing pretty good.  His name is Cody, he is a little 2-3 month old beagle.  Or at least that is what the rescue organization thinks... 

We got him through a place in Michigan called Last Day Dog Rescue and we found him on  He was going to be put down with the rest of his litter from a shelter in Ohio because they couldn't adopt them out.  This organization took them all in and they are all being fostered and adopted out. Makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside for saving this little guy.  And because he was in a foster home, he already knew how to sit, walk on a leash, and go potty outside (except for a few occasions).  He is such a little cuddler and a momma's boy.

Here are a few pictures of the little guy.

  • OMG he is so so so stinkin cute!! Congrats on the new furbaby and I hope things go smoothly! I see he has a blue lobster toy from Target, our Tera has a green one and LOVES it! She is on her second, as she destroyed the first one. She just carries it around with her, making it squeak, and taking naps with it. We call it 'lobby'.
