it's no secret that i have been wanting a puppy or a baby elephant for some time now. i will tell you though, that i didn't wake up this morning expecting to buy a puppy. i guess it's also not a secret that i am somewhat impulsive. i like to call it spontaneously awesome, but whatever. today we got a dog.
i was planning to sleep in like any other saturday morning, when i was awoken at 10:30 by a text message from my friend lee saying that she was by the walmart in springville and she saw some lab puppies for sale. i wrote her back and said, "really? how much? what color?" she didn't know much, so i for some odd reason, got right out of bed, hopped in the car in my pajamas, and drove to springville. and twenty minutes later i had a puppy. oops. sean wasn't with me. another oops..
his name is moses lee ashby. also known as mo, mosey, mose, and mosbey. he is a stud. he is a golden lab or yellow lab. whatever you wanna call it. purebred. 7 weeks old. came from a litter with 4 girls and 2 boys. him and his brother were the only ones left. i felt horrible splitting them up, but i had to do it. i felt strongly that we needed this puppy in our little family. he has beautiful green eyes and soft golden fur. he is for sure the cutest thing i have ever seen.
needless to say we both fell in love with him instantly. he is a very laid back, sweet, affectionate dog. he loves to be held like a baby. he loves being touched. he doesn't like to be alone, so it should be interesting. everyone tells us we are crazy. i keep telling them that they should already know that. we look forward to this new, fun, difficult, tiring, rewarding, adventure. bring it on moses. bring it on.
welcome to the family little bud. we love you so much already. if anything, people should be worried for you. not us.... we know it won't be easy. we know you will poop, and pee, and cry, and yelp. we know you will keep us up at nights for a little while. we may be crazy. but we are not stupid. we know the positive will out weigh the negative. we look forward to many fantastic years with you.
