After reading this post you’ll know that I both binge watch F*R*I*E*N*D*S on Netflix and that I brought home a puppy.
The cutest puppy ever!
I can remember Brian talking about how much he wanted a black lab before we ever dated. In 1998. Just before our wedding (in 2004, if you were wondering) a half-grown yellow lab showed up at his paren’t farm in the way that animals do when you live in the country. Brian’s plan was to move the dog to our house once we got married, but since we live so close to his parents Ben just kept finding his was back “home.”
Ben is still keeping Brian company when he goes to the farm to work, which is a large portion of his time, so I’ve not thought much about him needing another dog.
Until friends posted pics of their (sort-of black lab) puppies to Facebook.
And Brian wanted one.
And I got to thinking that we take care of two goats, a sheep, 20+ chickens, a dog and two cats as it is.
What’s one more animal, really?
So the kids and I went and picked up the puppy as an early Father’s Day surprise. I’m so glad we did!
After a few days Brian settled on the name Case, although Thor was a close contender. This face just doesn’t say “Dog of Thunder,” no matter how funny a labra-thor was.
Give it time and I’m sure he’ll eat a few chickens and probably my favorite flip-flops and end up on my naughty list, but that’s just the price you pay for this much cuteness!
