And they call it puppy love!

Josh finally did it!  He broke me down and we got a puppy for the children (ha ha you mean for Josh)   We went to the animal shelter today to just "look" and of course once you are in love you can't leave the poor thing in such a place.  While the other kids were at school we took Sophia and she was sooooo excited.  She choose the name too.  So meet our little fur baby girl, Valentine.  She is a Lab/Shepherd mix and about 2 1/2 months old.  She is very sweet and shy still and missing her brothers.  But our kitty Gabriel is warming up to her and they have been playing some.  I am not sure if the mirror on the floor is good for her or not.. if it will make her miss her brothers she was in the cage with or give her some entertainment?    In the next few days we will be getting a crate for her and doing the crate training and potty training.  I hope to get better pics soon (ugh camera phone quality is nil).


  1. so funny we just got apuppy too he was one of the puppies we fostered back in Dec. we have five dogs now lol yours is a cutie yes please I d love to see more pics

  2. Oh lord, we adopted the same type of mix and once she got over her shyness she has been the most hyper-active dog I have ever seen in my life.  I am not kidding, it is past the point of being ungodly.   I hope yours turns out betteR!

  5. Congrats on the newest member of your family!
    She is adorable and the kids will love her a lot.
    I like it when people adopt pups from the pound,
    they are almost always wonderful dogs, even the
    older ones.  Every Valentines day your family will
    remember the year they got her!
    God Bless,

  6. Bet you end up being the most attached to her!  LOL  -  Barbara
