Happy New Year to us, our family has increased by one. Yesterday we brought home this sweet girl.
We have been talking about getting a puppy for a while, and were planning to get one at the beginning of next summer.
Well, plans change quickly around here. I saw some puppies outside of the grocery store that I fell in love with. We didn’t end up with one of those, but then I got the fever.
My wonderful friend, Julie, got the fever by proxy, so she helped me find a litter of lab puppies needing homes. I took Z with me, telling him we were going to run an errand, and we went to check out the puppies.
There were 4 puppies, but only one was awake. She ran right up to me, and I was a goner. She had to be ours! 🙂
We brought her home and surprised the other kids. K was thrilled. D was happy enough. H hasn’t really seemed to notice. Our 12 year old dog, Parker, luckily hasn’t seemed too bothered by her new sister.
I wasn’t really planning on the kids naming our new addition. After all, their first suggestions were; Spyro, Skylander, Puppy, and Dora respectively. Today, however, the 3 oldest kids were outside with her, and somehow came up with the name “Clover” together. It just stuck. I like it, and I love that it came from the kids.
So, here is Clover. We are totally in love. 🙂
Hopefully Parker will get used to her. 😉
