Speechless Sunday: Really Cute Puppy!

This little guy is the latest addition to a favorite buyer's family.  And in this picture, he's just finished off checking out his new home.  He's a puppy, weighing I'm guessing about 15 pounds - about the size of my cat, Mr. Snowball.  He'll probably get a good bit bigger - he has pretty big paws.

But look at those eyes!  Wow!
