Such a loving, sweet story about Chewy. Giant Schnauzer, I had a miniature named Chrissy and she had 7 puppies, 6 boys and one girl.
It sounds like he became the most popular pup in your house. Are the other four dogs, purebreds? Just curious.
Your husband, Ivan, seems so laid back and easy-going. He accepted the new puppy with no lip-service to you about the four you already had. Good man!
I brought home two cats from the SPCA*, when they had a Free Adoption Day last August. When I called my ex about two, he got very mouthy and firm about only one.

Needless to say, Max and Mollie love him and (**Shhh, . . . don't tell**) he cares about them too. Warms the don't it?
Boris sounds like a charmer - does he want to sleep with you and Ivan?
Max and Molls are banned from my ex's room at night, (Tom has allergies to cat dander) but when he exits in the am, they bolt to his room, smelling everything, in case something has changed, or been moved.
Which of the five dogs is your favorite? Ivan's favorite?
Glad to learn you are a canine lover - God sure knew what he was doing when He created companion animals.
I'm gonna' place this on Public Reviews so your co-members can see another side of you; Miss Sarah, the animal lover.
Please enjoy the Gps as a token of a common thread that runs between us, we love animals, but more importantly, I loved the way you described the entire story of how you came about getting your Big Baby.
