Jet & Ares have a new brother - Meet Nitro!

On Monday September 10th (the day after our 6th Wedding Anniversary, my how time flies) we welcomed Nitro into our Family.  Nitro is a 2 1/2 year old Boston Terrier.  At first Jet & Ares were not quite sure about Nitro, but now they have realized that he will be staying and are beginning to tolerate him.

Jet and Nitro are turning into good pals.  Nitro is very good about sharing the toys with Jet (Jet not so much, but Nitro is much faster so he usually ends up with them).  Nitro is very respectful and I would say he "plays well with others".

Ares and Nitro are having a great time together.  Ares sleeps in Nitro's dog bed quite often and when he is in there Nitro brings him toys. I think Nitro wants Ares to throw the toys for him, but he's learning.  They also chase each other around and play hide and seek.  It's pretty hilarious.

Chris loves having a dog around that wants to play hours of fetch (Jet gets bored quickly).  We purchased a Chuck-It stick so that we don't tire out faster than Nitro!

As for me, Nitro is a great walking buddy.  We usually go for a walk with Jet (he's an old man and can't go too far) and then we drop Jet off and head out from anywhere from 3 to 5 miles.  He walks so well on the leash and even jogs with me a bit.  He'll keep me in shape for sure!
