Gratuitous Puppy Photos

Hello and welcome to a special birthday edition of diceRolla. That's right, folks, today I turned 34 years old... woo-hoo! It's been a great day for me and I've had a blast visiting with friends and family. I'm putting together a hobby-related post for tomorrow but right now I just want to share some pictures of the newest member of my family, a puppy dog named Charlie! As an early birthday present from my wife, last week we went to the animal shelter and adopted the little guy. He's super sweet, loves to snuggle, and gets along extremely well with our daughter and two cats, although he does seem slightly intimidated by one of the kitties.

Awwww, he's such a good puppy! I haven't had a canine companion in twenty or so years and did not realize how much I had missed the experience. With a toddler already in the house it's been close to nonstop mayhem but tremendous fun, too. :)

Okay, that's all for now. I need to take Charlie for a walk and will then get back to work on those Dark Elves. Goodnight, everybody!


  1. Awwww....

    You have a hound! You can release him!

    Happy birthday!

  15. Happy Birthday! What a noble pooch! Will you train him to pee on your opponent's leg if you lose?

    Sorry not have kept up with you. I've been focusing on my food blog instead of the Sven one.

    Hope you had a nice birthday. Let's see more pooch photos!

    Take care friend!

  16. Habby birthday Papps.

    Congrats on the new edition. Theya re adorable at that age. Ours learned the art of digging this morning much to my annoiance - but I wouldn't go back to not having my little mate.

    As echoed in some of the earlier comments though, stop gushing over pup and get cracking at your elves or they will never be done in time.


  17. Thank you very much, everyone! It was a a great day and I really appreciate all the birthday good cheer and laughs, as well as the compliments regarding my new buddy, Charlie. What can I say? I'm a proud papa. :) Thank you again, friends, and best wishes to each of you!!
