The Story of the Silver Lab Puppy

Have I mentioned I hate packing? Well I hate packing. Reid lands tomorrow and we are going to the house as soon as he gets in. I can't wait, but seriously I'm so ready for this to be over. I keep telling Reid I'm never moving again - like, at least not for ten years. He says he'll be sure to remind me of that when we have three kids, two dogs, and tons of toys. Whatever.

Anyway, about my puppy story. I'm not a big animal person. Maybe because mom always was - there were rabbits, Guinea pigs, hamsters, dogs, fish, turtles, and cats. You name it, she raised it. By the time I was in college I swore I would never have pets of my own. Then there was Reid, and when we got to college and knew we were going to get married I realized getting a dog someday was going to be part of the package. I've gone back and forth for a while, but when we started looking at houses I became really excited.

We have known since college we would one day have a male and female Lab. We've even named them! We decided on both a male and female because they'll need to stay outside because of Reid's allergies and they will have a companion. I can't wait to one day share the names with you!

Anyway, back to the story. Now that we have a house I thought I would be fun to surprise Reid with one of the silver Lab puppies that we have been eyeing since moving to Texas. I have been in email contact with the breeder, finding out all the details about liters, wait lists, etc. Tonight, I couldn't keep it a secret any longer and told Reid I had been emailing with the silver Lab breeder. He said, "You've been emailing Kellyn, too?" HA! He's been emailing her this whole time, asking all the same questions, trying to make it a surprise for me. Can you imagine if we had each gotten each other a puppy!? Kinda scary how much we think alike.
