"oh . . . nevermind."


Okay, so we said we weren't going to get another dog until Joshua was at least 4 years old, and we said we would get an older dog - not another puppy. Nevermind. Joe and I actually saw this puppy at two different times and then he mentioned him to me. We both went back two different times to look again - without each other knowing. Well, when Joe went back the second time, he was getting ready to walk away when they reduced his price by $70. Who can walk away from a deal like that? So, Monday afternoon Joe came home with Sampson (we call him Sam). His tag said he's a "lab-golden-shepherd" - basically a lab/shepherd mix. He's about 8 weeks old and we are working on training him to be an indoor dog. We tried the outdoor dog thing a few years ago, and that was a complete flop. So, to those of you who haven't already laughed at me and are wondering, yes, I am crazy. But isn't he cute?? Of course that wasn't the exact thought that was going through my mind as I was cleaning up after him and then chasing him this evening! Anyway, here he is! Joey and Gracie absolutely love him, and Madie is getting used to him. Joshua is clueless that anything is out of the ordinary.

He IS cute!! I kept checking your blog waiting for puppy pictures--only a true dog lover would anticipate such a thing:)

Are we taking bets on how long he stays?

He is absolutely ADORABLE! Who could look into those blue eyes and not say, "Awwwww"? That said, I'll be praying for you as you train him and acquire the extra duties of puppy-owning.

Thanks Carissa - that's sweet of you . . . really . . . but no cats for us! Neither Joe or I are big fans of cats, but Joey is allergic, so that's our REAL reason :o)
