Okay, first: last week, I was contacted by an editor at Diabetes Forecast magazine. The staff had caught wind of the You Can Do This Project, and she told me that they are all "really excited" about it! Lindsey and I chatted for several minutes by phone, and late on Friday afternoon, the article she wrote went up. Take a look at it here.

The rest of this post has nothing to do with diabetes, and everything to do with a new member of our family.

He was born in Missouri, recently learned that he loves walking on a leash and harness, and has only pooped in the house once. His interests include the mulch in our front yard, a cupcake-shaped chew toy, and having his tummy rubbed while he lays on his back. (It makes his hind legs kick in the air, like he's riding a bicycle.)

Everyone - meet Billy Corgin.

Don't mind the windblown hair - he sure didn't.

Everything in the world is safe when you can hide under a table.

Totally dominating a branch twice as big as he is.

This puppy loves cupcakes!
Really, I think he might be the Best Puppy Ever. (Too early to call that?)
