A Puppy to Love

getting a new puppyIt’s been nearly 3 months since our dog Bobo died. Our pug Animal is lonely. I am emotionally ready for another dog and now that we are somewhat settled into the house, we knew it was time.

We puppy-sat this Christmas and the kids were all in love with the puppy. So much so, they cried their eyes out when he left. We have spent the last 2 weeks debating on what type of dog to get, what age and what size.  At the end of the day, we wanted a puppy. Someone that can grow with the kids and that we can help easily adapt to all 6 of us. We hit up all the local shelters, but only came across a Pit Bull puppy, which wasn’t really something we wanted to get. After doing some research and making some calls, we found a Labradoodle.  And OMG we are so in love. I mean, how could you not love this face?

Introducing our toddlers to our new puppy was fun to watch. The puppy, so playful – yet shy and our toddlers, not shy, very curious and yet a little scared.

After a few hours, you could already see our oldest toddler Izaiah bonding with the dog. Here’s some of their cute interactions.

    Mister Thornberg. Sometime ago, my husband and I were watching SOME movie, but there was a line similar to... Mr? That's my dog's name. Stupid, silly and we can't remember the name of the movie - but this is our Mister.

    While we've only had the dog for a wee bit, he has spent the majority of his awake time being pushed in circles riding in the fire engine.

    Apparently, the whole no dog on the couch thing isn't going to happen. Pup apparently enjoys toddler tv.

    My kid gives love like a cone head.

    I've caught him whispering to the pup. I'm pretty sure it involves how they can rescue the candy leftover from Christmas.

    All the running around makes a pup tired.

A puppy to love is what we wanted. A puppy to love is what we got. Oh my heart, this sweet furry creature of mine has melted it.
