A New Addition To The Family?!

A few weeks ago my mom decided to tell me and my brother that she was going to look at some puppies because a woman near us was selling Golden Labradors. Mind you, the second she said this my heart skipped a beat because Golden Retrievers and Labs are my two favorite dogs so having my very own combination of the two sounded like something of a dream. She told us not to get our hopes up, as a lot of people seemed interested and there were only nine of them so it was first come, first serve. She said that if she was able to get one, she would send us a picture. And sure enough, I got a picture the next day with the caption "MEET YOUR NEW BABY BROTHER!!!"

(A picture I posted of him on my instagram)

Even though we are getting him the day before I leave for school, (I actually joked with my mom about how I thought that she was replacing me with him) I am still beyond thrilled. I have had a cat since I was six years old and my mom always said that after he passed away, we weren't getting anymore pets and she always seemed quite set on that, so I definitely was not expecting this!

We have been arguing about what his name should be since we found out that he would be joining our family, but the other night, we finally came to an agreement. Although I was quite set on a name that we had all said that we liked earlier, I was able to let it go and agree on naming him Finn!

I was going to wait until after we brought him home to write this post, but I decided that when that time came I would be too busy, not only packing and moving into my dorm, but playing with him as much as I could before I am gone! (Although i am lucky that my school is only 40 minutes away so it won't be hard for me to come home every now and then to visit!)

I am so excited to be bringing him home in only four days now! Have any of you ever had a dog or getting one? Tell me about it in the comments! We can talk about our puppies together!

Lots of Love,
Mari! (:
