Well, we may have officially lost our minds, but guess what we did today? We adopted a baby. A little shepherd mix baby, to be exact. She is three and a half months old and made of adorable.

We have been wanting a dog for a long time. We weren’t really considering a puppy, but this little one proved to be too much for our marshmallow hearts. We picked her up and immediately she snuggled in, wagging her tail and being super-friendly and sweet, not a big timid or scared.

So, I know we are in for a few months of puppy craziness, but we’ll take her to puppy classes really soon and start working with her immediately, and I’m sure she will be a really good dog. We love her already.

Now, to start puppy-proofing the house!

    OHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY GOD. That is quite possibly the CUTEST puppy I’ve ever seen. And yes, every single one of those capital letters was necessary.

      What a sweet thing to say! We hope so. She’s pretty adorable.

    Awwwwww! I totally expected a post like this after all the gushing you’ve been doing about your doggie visitors. πŸ˜‰ Have fun training her! I don’t have the energy, and my parents aren’t dog people, so I went the adult dog route, but puppies are undeniably so soft and snuggly. Totally worth it!

      We were going to go the adult dog route, but then…. well, puppy madness took over.

    YIPPEE for new puppies! My lil one is starting to become the sweetest thing. I admit she was quite the defiant puppy (she’s one in July)

    She is so cute I want to hop on a plane right now and come over and get some puppy love. How is she getting along with Thomas?

      She is getting better — the first day, we didnt have her confined as much as we should have and she chased him. But now we have her on a leash at all times and are crate training her, and she’s showing less inclination to chase that fun-looking furry thing. We’re correcting her when she shows too much interest. So I think it’s going well. She is a ball of furry love!
