Our new addition!

I would like to introduce you to the new addition to our family, Callie! She is an English Springer Spaniel puppy. We got her last night. We have been contemplating getting a dog for about 2 years now, and finally took the plunge. She is the sweetest little thing. She was such a good rider in the car on the way home, no crying at all. She just snuggled into D. and rested. Aubrey is over the moon about her. He didn't want to go to bed last night. And Mallory just giggles at her.

We bought her from a family who lived on a good bit of acreage and had other animals, so Aubrey had a blast because he got to pet a horse and a cat while we were there. I think he was just as excited about petting the horse as he was about getting a puppy. We named her Callie because we were trying to pick a girl name and the first road we turned on after leaving her previous home was called Callie Still. D. said, "What about Callie?" We all liked it and it just kind of stuck. Aubrey is still asking, "What is her name again?" I think he takes after his daddy in the name remembrance category!

She slept really well last night and just loves to be held and petted. So, please come over and meet our new bundle of love!

Awww! I've really been wanting a puppy lately, and Callie is so cute! But that's all I need with the two girls I've got and a baby on the way, right? I love her name. Have fun with her! I wish I could meet in person. :)
