That's right...you've guessed it...
Jeremy and I....
are getting a PUPPY!!!!!
Ha ha! Alright, how many of you thought I was going to say I was pregnant? Come on, you know you thought about it for at least a second! Well, just for the record...I am NOT pregnant, NOR do I plan on becoming pregnant anytime soon. End of story. Thanks for asking.
Anyway, we are SO EXCITED to finally be getting a puppy! Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I'm pleased to introduce our newest family member:
Isn't he SO cute?! He a Chocolate Lab and he approximately 6 1/2 weeks old.
So, Jeremy and I have always talked about getting a puppy. First, we wanted to get settled into married life (done!). Then, we wanted to buy a house (done!). And then, we wanted to seriously start looking after our vacation (done!). It didn't take too long to find our big guy, and though we won't be getting him until April 4th, we've already "claimed" him as ours! Yay!!
Now I'm sure some of you who know us well are thinking, "But Sara, didn't you guys want a St. Bernard?" As a matter of fact, we were considering a St. Bernard (more so Jerm than me), but I was a bit concerned about that large and furry of a dog. If you refer back to my post entitled, "We Want a Dog...Maybe this kind of Dog," you can find my concerns. Anyway, long story short, we discussed our options and decided that for our first dog we were not going to get a St. Bernard. So, we narrowed down our choices to a Lab or a German Shepherd, and then we found the ad in the newspaper for this big guy and his siblings.
Since I've been traveling every weekend for work, I knew I probably wouldn't have time to go see the puppies; so, last Saturday, Jerm drove down to Phoenix, liked the breeder and the pups, and picked this guy out of the litter! According to Jerm, he's such a cutie, a goofball and the biggest of the bunch. In fact, the breeders call him, "Chunky Monkey!"
Oh, we are SO excited! We've gone shopping for him during the past two evening and have already gotten him a bed and some toys. There's so much to do and get for a puppy, but we're BEYOND EXCITED and CANNOT WAIT to bring him home!!
I foresee many, many more blog posts about Diesel, in the future.
