We did it. We got a puppy. Our sweet dog Pupper died four years ago, and the kids (and their Daddy!) have been asking for a dog ever since. Well, I am finally ready. Michael and I were on a date Saturday, and we went to the Humane Society's location at the mall. Michael picked up Maggie and didn't want to put her down. We took turns holding her and she melted our hearts. We had planned to get the kids a dog for Christmas, but we decided to go ahead and adopt her now. The kids were soooo happy and surprised when they met her! She is getting a lot of attention, to say the least. She is a German shepard/labrador retriever mix.
Welcome to the family, Maggie!
