Hobbes Comes Home - Puppy Pictures!

Today, Hobbes came home.

Meet Hobbes:

Hobbes Newton MyLastName
Hobbes is the new pet member of our family.
Wife named him after my a character from my favorite comic, Calvin and Hobbes.
I gave his middle name as Newton after Isaac Newton, who was such a baller that at age 17 he developed the mathematics used to plot lunar lander trajectories 242 years after his death (and a bunch of other cool stuff).
Hobbes is a 5-week old Golden Retriever puppy and .: is the cutest thing currently alive on Earth.
Two weeks ago, we went to visit Hobbes with his bro and sisters.
Today, we brought Hobbes home:

Driving to Wesner's Goldens to pick Hobbes up.

Wife was VERY excited. Hobbes is the first puppy she's EVER HAD.

Again, a very excited wife.

Our first official meeting with Hobbes, since in the last visit we didn't know which one would be ours.

Cute Hobbes.

Reclusive Hobbes doesn't wanna play after his long day.

A drink of water would not be amiss, though.
And now, Hobbes is asleep in a packing crate with his stuffed octopus, as apparently that is cozier than the crate that we set up for him... Go figure. Stay tuned for more awesomely cute Hobbes pics and vids as he joins us for My Medical Transformation! Also, this week we went camping and it was great - more on that later...
