A New Addition to the Family...

Monday, January 2, 2012

Jeff and I have been debating about getting a dog and then later which kind to get for the last year. I wanted a small dog...he wanted a big dog. I wanted an inside dog...he wanted an outside dog. And on and on. I didn't think we would ever decide on one. After what seemed like a never ending debate we decided on a Lab. We looked into Chocolate Labs, but never actually went to get one. Jeff is kind of picky when it comes to purebred, registrations, and certifications of dogs.

We got the inspiration needed when my parents bought a puppy while we were home staying with them for Christmas (They got a Golden Retriever). We ended up coming home and buying a little Yellow Lab from Ark Angle Labradors and we LOVE her. We've had a couple of sleepless nights, but she's starting to settle into our home and we're so happy she's here.

Luckily we didn't have as had of time naming our puppy that my parents did :) but it was still hard. I really don't know what's going to happen when we have kids and have to come up with names. It totally stressed me out. After we went to see her for the first time we started brainstorming names: London, Crumpet, and Brie. It wasn't until we went to pick her up the next day that we decided on Brie. It just seemed to fit her. Jeff continues to call her "Puppy," or "Pooch" and I'm working hard to remind him that her name is Brie and she won't learn it if he calls her other names. Jeff is really good with her and it's fun watching him take such good care of her.
