Quick update: And then there’s TWO!

#64 on the bucket list: Lay on my back in a grass field while fluffy puppies trample all over me… CHECK!


It is officially OFFICIAL! Reagan is ours. Last night we went out to the breeder’s home for another visit. This was the final trip before take home day!! Woo! Our first trip, the pups were very small as they were only 3 weeks old. We had an idea of which one we’d get but the breeder suggested coming back to confirm when they were bigger. And that we did! Reagan will be with us on August 1st. But the good news doesn’t stop there.

“With the 2nd pick in the NBA draft, the crazy dog family of this blog ALSO selects…”

But no seriously. Reagan’s brother, Finn, was picked out by one of our sisters and will be joining our big extended family. Woohoo for not only being new parents but aunts too! Finn is super cute and his PFF (potential fluff factor) is off the charts. He will be living about 20 minutes away from our house. That means lots of puppy play dates! And now Rae has her big brother around to protect her from bullies. Or maybe vice versa? Time will tell.

Reagan and Finn officially became ours when the breeder clipped a small section of their fur in a designated area to mark them. And then with a celebratory Lion King lift, it was official.Things are very real for us. And now all that’s left to do is wait…

…and decide on a dog food, puppy proof the house, puppy proof the yard, decide on a vet, quit my job, become the dog whisperer,  land my own TV show, make millions, am I still typing?


Here are some pictures from last night’s visit. They have grown so much in the week and half its been since meeting them!

    Ahh they’re such cute balls of fluff! You guys are going to have such an amazing time with them! And you’ll have lots of great puppy play dates now that Rae and Finn are going to be living so close!

      And to think they’re just going to get fluffier! 🙂 We can’t wait! There are also two other adult dogs in the family, another golden and a white lab, so play dates are going to be so much fun!
