Puppy Love

My husband and I agreed long ago that getting a puppy for Christmas is not a good idea.  The initial surprise and adorable photo opportunities are one thing, but the extra work and lack of sleep during a busy holiday and having to housebreak in frigid, snow-covered weather just spells Bad Plan.  So what happens?

We get a puppy at Christmastime.

One morning in November my kids ambushed me at the door, classifieds in hand.  There’s puppies for sale in the newspaper!  They were the right price, a wonderful breed, and only two towns away.  So we sought.  And we found a sweetheart of puppy right in the heart of the Christmas season.  I could say more but pictures speak volumes.  So here’s a short photo journal of the newest member of our family:

 

A boy and his puppy.

 

Listening in on homeschool. He’ll be the smartest dog in the                          neighborhood!

 

He loves (or maybe just tolerates!) being                             held like a baby.

 

Darn kids! Always leaving their               toys everywhere:)…

 

Yes, I’m adorable! And ready to play!
