Our growing family....

No jen is not pregnant! We did however add an adorable four legged creature to our family, thats right we got a 3 month old puppy! He is a german shepherd lab retriever mix and he is incredibly adorable! We had talked about getting a dog for a long time but i dont think that either of us were really ready for the time commitment it was going to take. As the months went on that desire grew more and more and we began looking more seriously. Jen would look on the website for the shelter EVERYDAY to see if they had any puppies that we would like, of course they are all cute so it was hard not to go and get one right then and there. Ultimately we decided that we would get one after our trip to North Carolina. Sure enough, jen had found a litter of puppies and filled out an application and we went all the way down to mission bay at 6 in the morning to meet them. We saw the puppies and one of them came up to jen right away.........we knew right away that he was the one we wanted. We took him home with us and he slept the whole way home. Slowly he's getting used to the house, learning what not to do and all of the fun things that go with training a is a little exhausting at times and hard to get work done. All in all we are blessed to have him and we love him to death, hes fun to have around, mellow, likes people, really curious, playful and very loving. Hes only been with us a few days but already i cannot imagine life without him. We finally decided on a name a few days ago, we named him Koa. Its Hawaiian for "brave one", although right now its more of an oxymoron than an actual statement of fact cus he whimpers a lot and is afraid of everything. Some of you have already met him on Facebook but for those of you who have not let me formally introduce you to Koa! Heres a few quick shots ive been able to get in the past few days. Enjoy!
