An addition to the family

No it isn't another baby...although that would be ok with me. :-) We're getting a new puppy on Saturday. His name is Vinnie, actually his proper name is Vincent Aloysius Duncan-Abushalback. Now that's a mouthful! Vinnie is an American Cocker Spaniel and right now he is 7 weeks old and weighs 5.5 lbs. HUGE! He'll probably grow to be about 15" tall so he'll still be quite a bit smaller then Jake (our lovely Chocolate Lab). We decided, on a whim, that Alice needed a dog to grow up with. Although we love our Jakey, he is 9 and getting slower in his old age. I'm hoping he'll be around for a long time! We thought it would be great for Jake to have a playmate as well as Alice. I didn't want another large dog, having 2 big dogs is just too much, so we decided on a medium size dog. We're so excited....for the potty training woes, the being woken up in the middle of the night by whining...the chewing, the sassy mouth...wait...is this a dog or a baby? Yikes, we're in trouble.

Happy Wednesday...we made it past Monday.

My happiness goals for the day...to remember why being happy really can be simple (note to self, read my former blog posts).
