Dearest friends and family, we have some important news to share with you. You know we've been thinking for a very long time to add a new member to our family. Well, the time has come and we're very excited to share the news with you ...
No, I'm not pregnant, but I had you going for a minute there didn't I?
We are getting a new puppy! We met him yesterday. He's a German Shorthair Pointer and it's a surprise for Ryder's 6th birthday next Friday. So, if you see or talk to Ryder between now and then, don't say anything.
I'm not sure if we could have been more obvious yesterday when we were jaunting about town looking at puppies and going to the pet store. We drove out to Mountain Home (about a 30-45min drive from our house) to meet the puppy, then went to PetSmart to get the necessary puppy items. Ryder asked why we were buying all this stuff, and we told him it's so Byron (the Kearney's dog) will be nice and comfy when he comes over to stay with us. In the end, he was completely clueless.
We're so excited for the craziness that this new puppy is going to bring to our family.
Here's a picture of the little guy below. We're going to let Ryder name him since it's his dog. I asked him what he was thinking of for names. If it's a boy (which this one is), it is going to be Cody. Cute. If it's a girl, he wants to name it Sheila. Odd.
More to come next week ...
