For the baby lovers – don’t get excited – it’s not what you think.  it’s T-3 days till we get our new puppy!  It’s been 5 years of debate on getting this said dog, many questions, doubts, fears turned into excitement, and elation as we concluded that this is now the time –  we are pulling the trigger!  yes, people still like to debate with us on the whole “kids first then the dog”.  But Nick and I felt this is a better approach for us.  We want to solely love and welcome our puppy, get into a routine now, and then think about the whole kid thing.

yes, we understand the responsibility and commitment of what we are about to do.

yes, we are prepared to walk it at least twice a day.

yes, we are prepared for the massive shedding.

yes, we are going to need to house train.

We have spent countless hours researching online.  lots of opinions on how to house train; how to be a dog owner; what it means to your life/stuff/house/time.  We can only read so much – we will figure it out our way, and make mistakes and learn from it. hopefully without much mishaps!

o, what kind of dog are we getting?

Samoyed! aka. fluff ball. aka polar bear cub doppelganger. aka the chewing/shedding/smiling faced dog.

will post pictures next week!  for now, we are just preparing – make trips to pet stores for supplies.  Trying not to go crazy at buying it all – sticking with the basics for now.  These stuff sure adds up $ real fast.
