Meet the newest member of the Alexander team----Charlie!! He is an 8 week old Malti-poo puppy. He is precious and no, we aren't crazy. I have one sister-in-law that was ready to sign us up for therapy and one that felt a need to remind me that we are in fact in the process of an international adoption! I love them both dearly and am thankful that they feel freedom to express themselves so openly:)

The story of how Charlie became an Alexander involves an eight year old girl and her daddy......a daddy that wanted his daughter to continue with dance, and then a classic parenting strategy--- bribery!! For those that don't know- we already have two large dogs. Tibbi, an almost 10 year old Vizsla and an 8 month old Vizsla/Weimeraner mix, Mo. We won't be adding anymore pets to our house--just kids:)

We are still waiting on our CIS approval. Charlie sure is cute and makes the waiting somewhat easier. The picture below is one happy daughter that we all can't wait to see in her dance recital.

This is Mocha- our Christmas morning surprise puppy.

Mo is so unbelievably patient with Charlie. This is Charlie eating Mo's food.

This is Tibbi. He is old and very happy Mo has a new friend!
