my hubby finally caved this Saturday and agreed to let us get a puppy! we drove around ALL day to virtually every puppy store in a 15 mile radius, even to the huge pet adoption going coincidentally going on at the fair grounds that same day. we finally found our baby at the end of the day (back at a store we had already been to earlier!).
Roxy, f.k.a. Speckles (i wasn't too keen on the name),a cocker spaniel, was the oldest puppy there, born 6/25 so she was marked down rather low. she is too stinkin' adorable and super, super sweet! she had her first vet visit Tuesday where we learned she has giardia (a common intestinal parasite) which is causing her to have mushy poo. so she's on meds for that. we're crating her at night and while we're at work and she's doing very well! she's only had a few accidents in the house (like 3 since last Saturday) so potty training is going well, too!
Randy had originally said that this puppy is all mine and Ant's (well, mostly mine since Ant's only here on the weekends). however, i'm considering that a big, fat lie! he's been all over our puppy! he takes her out and plays with her all the time! it's too funny!
We're all very happy, and for now, my longing for a baby can be put on the back burner :o)
