A Tribute to Max

So last Friday night, our little pup Max passed away. He was hit by our neighboor's truck accidentally, and unfortunately didn't make it. He was such a good little pup and Brandon and I will miss him a lot.

But because the experience was a traumatic one (a bit too much for the blog) we decided to go ahead a get a new puppy so that Brandon could put this terrible experience out of his mind and focus on happier things.

So on Saturday, we headed down to New Orleans and picked up Hercules...a GREAT DANE! He's no Max, but he is absolutely wonderful in his own ways! And we already love him to pieces! He follows Brandon absolutely everywhere he goes (which is what Max used to do). It's pretty cute to watch.

He is 4 months old and already weighs 50lbs! At 1st I was kinda sad that he wasn't a little pup, but then I found out that he's potty trained!!! Which is AWESOME!

The night we got him, we had Joel, Holly, KK, Eli, Jelani, and Taylor over for dinner. The whole time they were here, he slept soundly next to the couch by Brandon's feet. Eli put his temperment to the test by patting on him, tugging a bit on his tail, and even SAT on him... Hercules didn't even flinch. He was OUT! Another thing that we love about Hercules is that he loves to cuddle! (Which I find quite hilarious seeing as how he's a huge thing) On our way to hang out with Adam & Erica, he wiggled his way from the back seat so that the whole front half of his body rested in Brandon's lap. Too cute. :) Anyway, here are a few pics from today!

The Heils

On 8/1, Ms. Kim and Mr. Todd were married! It was a beautiful ceremony and we're so excited that Mr. Todd is part of our family.

For their honeymoon, they headed down to a city a little south of Cancun. Here are some pics from their excursion.
