Newest Addition...

Our journey to a dog started a long time ago.  
It started with an agreement and a puppy jar.
Yes, I was finally ready to get a dog.
They had all been waiting for me.

Well, over the year that little jar filled up.
Every coin and bill they had was stuffed into the jar.
They kept filling the jar, counting it up, 
and tucking it into our secret spot.

They filled that jar many many times, and raised 257 dollars.

Then, we waited for a dog to steal our hearts.

Saturday night I made a call to an add on Facebook:

Golden Retriever Puppies

Two hours later we were sitting in a kitchen, with new friends, cuddling their adorable puppies.

And one stole our hearts.

Completely stole our hearts.

So we left that night, blessed by Maria and Carl, with a puppy.

Now he was our puppy.

Bullet Doyle.

Now he's just one of us.

And when Bullet wants to go for a walk we all go for a walk.

When Bullet wants to stop,
we all stop.

When Bullet is tired,
everyone is tired.

He is one smart dog.

He knows how to magically make little boys 
want their picture taken.

Well, except for  one little boy in the back row who is sad cause HE wanted to hold the puppy.

Bullet already knows where the 
best seat in the house is to get a free snack.

And he knows he is completely loved.

Welcome home Bullet.



awww, Bullet is so cute! More fun times at your home.

Golden retrievers are the best!! We had one named Sadie when my kids were small. She really looked out for the kids and would 'herd' them towards the house, if she thought they were getting too far away. Your pup is beautiful and will be everyone's best friend for many many years! congrats!!
