A New Addition

As I mentioned last week before I went on holiday break, Ryan and I have some exciting news to announce!

Our family is growing … Okay, not with a human baby, but a furry baby!

I am excited to introduce you to Finley, (currently Ethan – we will be changing his name) or Finn for short. He is a 10-week old, 8-pound Labrador/Schnauzer mix puppy.

We had been researching puppies for quite some time, but we weren’t sure it was going to work out this year based on timing, cost and getting permission from our landlord to have a dog in the house. Well, that all changed when I came across Fluffy Dog Rescue and saw this litter of puppies on the website. Ryan and I pretty much instantly fell in love with Finley’s little face, and after reading the heartbreaking story of where these dogs came from, we knew we had to go for it. Everything fell in line from there!

We had the opportunity to meet the little guy last Wednesday, and there was no doubt that he was our puppy. You know how some people say that sometimes the dog chooses you? Well, I’m a firm believer in that now, and I feel so lucky that we just randomly stumbled upon this website and found Finley. Plus, who doesn’t want to rescue/adopt a puppy and give it a loving home?!

Finley is coming home to us Monday, and we cannot wait to have this new addition in the house and to our family. Sure, it’s going to be a lot of work in the beginning, but it definitely will be worth it. If any of you have puppies or dogs, please leave me any helpful advice – I can use all that I can get!
