Or is that a PUPPY in our backyard???
Yep, this sweet little fur-ball is now a member of our family... or is my family replacing me? Either way, we have a dog. The daughter of some people in our ward was selling her dog's puppies, and my dad had mentioned to them that Kesha wanted a puppy. So, when the puppies were at their house last Saturday, they called to have Kesha come over to play with them. All week the kids were bugging mom and dad about getting a puppy. When they called again yesterday to say that the puppies were there again, I tagged along and fell in love. Puppy love, that is. Reluctantly, I left for work. I didn't want to. No sir. I wanted to stay and play with the puppies. Well, when I called to say I was on my way home, Dad asked me if I'd gotten any strange text messages. I hadn't, but was almost positive that there was going to be a surprise waiting for me when I got home. I got out of my car and didn't hear any puppy-noises coming from the backyard. But when I walked in the door, I saw a dog carrier through the window and an adorable little fuzzy face peeking at me! WHAT??? My mother, who has been very strict about not getting a dog allowing a dog to live at her house? She had a MAJOR moment of weakness... not that we're complaining about it. She tells me that I'm the worse one of the kids. I was still outside cuddling the puppy (we aren't completely sure of a name for him yet) at midnight last night, and was back outside before church playing with him for a few minutes. But gee whiz... I like how I had to grow up with a dog and they get one right before I leave for a year and a half. I've never really liked dogs, until I met my friend Britney's dog last summer anyway. But JJ is a tiny little thing. He's full grown and our puppy is bigger than he is. But I like our dog. It's really funny to see/ hear the reactions of people who know my mom though. I went over to Suzanne's tonight to see if she was by chance home because I haven't seen her in months. She wasn't but I talked to her mom for a little bit. She was telling me that they got a new puppy a while back, and I was like "We got one too." She was laughing, and then abruptly stopped and her eyes got real big and she said "YOU got a dog?" It was pretty funny. I'm having quite a good time telling people about him, especially people who know my mother well.
