Welcome Magellan!

Welcome the newest addition to the Temptalia family! His name is Magellan (yes, after the explorer), and he is nine weeks old today!  We’ve had him for just over a week now, and I couldn’t resist sharing.  He is a yellow labrador retriever, and he weighs about ten pounds right now.  I’m photo-documenting his journey to full-size so we can track how fast he grows!

More photos (duh!) if you want to see…

Aww, I bet she was an amazing dog 🙂 My dog (who resides with my parents and loves them way more) is entering his 16th (!!) year.

aaaaahhhhhh!!!! Magellan is soooo cute! I see someone is a history-buff! christine! : P hehe – love the picture where he is lying on the couch and had his eyes closed and open.

update pls on the growth!

so sweet! be happy together! (hopefully you are not too attached to your shoes, because he will get to them, however good you try to protect them, he WILL get to them! I know what I´m talking about! ;D)

OMG he’s so cute!! If I didn’t have a toddler running around the house, I would seriously consider getting a lab…they are the cutest puppies ever!

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH he is sooooo cute 🙂 I simply adore puppy toes…they are almost as cute to kiss as baby toes 🙂 Having gotten a rescue dog myself recently, I know how much love a dog brings into your home 🙂 You and your man are very lucky, as I am sure Magellan is.

I can’t wait until his feet get too big for the rest of him, LOL. That is the best part about big dogs!

How is Fafi doing? 🙂

I have to say, I was already entirely committed to not wanting kids before, and seriously, having a puppy totally cements the, “I’m not procreating. Ever.” feeling. Way too much work, LOL.

Im not sure, we used to have tons of land and we had 20 dogs all different kinds. Never had a lab before, hopefully I can get my mom to get one!

We live in an apartment, and that didn’t stop us! He can’t go anywhere until he’s 4 months anyway, since his immune system is poor til he has all his shots. We live very close to a park (across the street), so we intend to take him there later on.

Oh, yellow labs are my favorite! When I get one, I will call her “Honey.”

Actually, I love animals in general, and even if my sister and I share a 2-bedroom apartment, we have managed to keep two cats, two chihuahuas, two snakes and a box turtle. =)

Cuuuuute! Aw I remember the novelty of a new puppy (til’ she ate my fave eyeshadow brush) enjoy! I’m a sucker for “critters,” my family used to call me Ellie Mae when I was little lol.

HIS NAME IS POOKS BUT MY FAMILY REALLY CALLS HIM NINO (BABY, BUT IN SPANISH AND W/O THE TILDE OR HOW EVER YOU SPELL IT) AND BELLO PRECIOSO lol!

HEY MAGELLAN!! ((YES THIS IS A COMMENT FOR U HUN)) YOU ARE SOOOO ADORABLE!! AND I KNOW CHRISTINE WILL TAKE GOOD CARE OF U. LUCKY HER!! TAKE CARE AND BE SURE TO TAKE YOUR WALKS!!! –P.S. DONT GET INTO CHRISTINES’ MAKEUP LIKE MY DOGGIE DID “OH NOOOO!!”

Hey Cristine,

He’s so cute,adorable and nice pix u have taken of him,i really luv the pictures especially the sleepy pose of him,u r lucky but im not so fortunate,cuz my hubby dont like pets esp,dogs or cats and im tooo much in luv with animals,i really adore one but i know i can never,i really feel like crying :'(…but lucky u..(iam sorry i made whole atmosphere emotional)

Luv,
Zzainy..

Yipeeeeeeeeeee he is ADORABLE! Please kiss him on his cute lil nose on my behalf…he must be keeping you on your toes right now. I showed his pics to my husband and he melted off the couch! Truly a gift from God – dogs are amazing. As much care, or even more, as babies need – but so rewarding. Please keep us updated on what he’s doing and how he looks – he’s soon going to grow into an awkward period (just like us) – into a “teen”.

LOL! Oh, he definitely keeps us on our toes. He is always underfoot!

We definitely will 🙂 He already put on four pounds in the space of a week!
