Introducing....our new Pup!
A few weeks back for our Wordless Wednesday Picture, I gave a hint about what was to come. If you have not figured it out, we are going to become dog owners. Our nanny, Erin, helped her parents raise puppies from their yellow lab. We went to see the puppies the day they were born and we have been back weekly ever since.
At first, we (I) had no intentions of getting one of these puppies but after much debate, discussion, and prayer, we decided that if we are ever going to get a dog, now is the time.
The kids are at a perfect age and well, Jon has always wanted a dog. Our puppy will be put through extensive training to be a hunting dog.
I would lie if I did not tell you that I am VERY nervous about bringing a puppy into our already crazy world but I can say that the more I go and see these puppies, the more in love I have become.
Tonight we went to pick out our puppy. There are five girls puppies to choose from and well, it is not an easy decision. We do plan to go back one more time before we make the FINAL decision but we are 99.9% sure we have picked her...well she kind of picked us.
Below is the note that we sent to our extended family tonight:
Wish us luck!
