... what a sucker!!

This is Bear! He is the newest member of our family. Another dog, I know, what am I thinking? But as my title states, I am a sucker. Look how cute he is! Last Saturday I had felt like it was time to give our year old cats to a family who could take care of them better than we could. I put an add on KSL and had many phone calls. Darrik was shocked that I had acutally, finally done it. I had been threatening him and teasing about it for a long time. But I felt like it was time. We are not home during the day and we are super busy, they just don't get the attention that they deserve. Well, that night after they were picked up, Darrik was having a really hard time. I had given his babies away... what a rude wife. He really loved those cats, and I was the mean wife who gave them away. I felt terrible, so I told him we could get another dog... WHAT?!? I know, I'm crazy. But here he is, and he is so adorable.

He is part wolf-hybrid, and boxer. So he will be another large, inside (do not let me forget to mention that part) dog. For now he is a cutie, but I know when the two dogs get going there will be chaos. Not to mention, I'm out numbered 3 to 1, and when the baby comes, 4 to 1. Way too much testosterone for one household!
