I got a new Auntie this weekend. Mitra came all the way from New York City just to meet me (and see my Mommies too). I liked her so much when I met her that I bit her nose! I didn't mean to do it I just got really excited. Auntie Mitra forgave me and we cuddled lots. I can't wait to go to New York for a visit.
PS she also taught me some dirty words but I am not the cussing cockapoo.

Aunt Jean came over to see Atticus after work on Friday. Uncle Nick was jealous that Aunt Jean got puppy play time, so he came over too. Mommies B & L ordered Chinese food and forced Aunt Jean and Uncle Nick to stay and have dinner. We all such a lovely time, come back soon.

Atticus got to meet more new people today, thank goodness he had a bath! Paul and his daughter Melissa came over to play and Atticus had a ball (tennis, soccer and squishy!) Atticus thought Melissa was another puppy and licked her lots, he was even more confused when she got in his bed, thats OK, he likes to share!. Come back soon Melissa
Today was grooming day! Atticus had a big lesson in personal hygiene. He had his fur brushed, ears cleaned, nails clipped and finally a bath! He was so cold after his bath he shook but thankfully Mommy B had the hairdryer to warm him up. He was very good for his Mommies but he didn't like having his ears cleaned, he shook his head to get all that stinky stuff out of his lug holes. Now he smells like lavender and mint - yum!

Today was the first day L had to come home at lunch time to feed Atticus and let him outside to go potty. Aunt Bridget came along for the ride and fell in love with Atticus. For a special treat, Atticus got to go to Mummy L's work for the afternoon to meet lots of new people. Atticus leapt into the arms of Aunt Libby and kissed her so much she didn't know if he was coming or going. Then he got to meet Julia, Dan, Abhi and Tamika. Abhi was a little afraid of this big ferocious puppy but enjoyed giving Atticus a 'fro. We all saw a softer side of Dan when we noticed that there was a little tear in the corner of his eye as he snuggled with Atticus. Then, he got to go meet all of Mummy L's friends in the department and get lots of attention and kisses. Atticus doesn't know why Mummy L complains about rush hour traffic on the schuylkill expressway, he just curled up on his blankie and went to sleep for the ride home. Atticus can't wait to go back to the lab!

Atticus met his half-brother Cassius today! They played and frolicked and had some doggie treats. They took turns being alpha, but Cassius and his fierce puppy growl proved to be the alpha-est! Atticus is a lover, not a fighter. They have another play date in two weeks!

Atticus watched his first Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet and his first human Superbowl! He was more interested in his new hot dog toy than football. (Thanks Uncles George and Michael!) His buddy Zeke came over to his house and shared his new toy. Aunties Christine and Leslie and Uncle Nick and Aunt Jean gave him lots of snuggles let him run puppy crazy. After so much fun, Atticus crashed at the end of the party, he can't wait until next year's game!
