in love with this sweet boy

How could you not love that face??? The minute I saw him I was in love. But I am a sucker for a retriever ;) I've missed that face in this house since we lost our Schuby in July. And yes, I love Jesse (my other dog). But it's not the same.

So here's the story of how this pup came to be a part of my family. My friend Kellie was up in Chattanooga visiting family & she called me yesterday & said that someone had retriever puppies. Apparently the mama was just left so someone took her in and eventually the pups. Kellie knows how I love retrievers :) Anyway, at first she told me they were Irish Setter/Lab mixed. but when she sent me a pic of the momma I said 'that's not an Irish Setter, that's a golden!' Oh how I wanted her, too! And so did Kellie. Look how sweet she is...
Anyway, somehow I managed to talk my sweet hubby into letting Kellie bring one of the pups home to me. Now, my husband is not a spur of the moment kind of guy. So for him to say yes....well, it still makes me smile :)
And this pup?? He is the sweetest ever. He loves to snuggle. He's so far, no accidents in the house or in his crate last night. 
Oh, and I also had another ultrasound today and little peanut is doing well - about 2cm long. Almost an inch!! Heartbeat was great. 

It's been a really good day. I feel so blessed. My heart is so happy after such a hard year. God has been good to me...through the bad and the good :)

He looks so happy and that makes my heart happy too. My own little "Thanksgiving Story." He could not have found a better home. I can vouch for that!!!!!!!!!! Home sweet home little fellow.

He is absolutely adorable! We're looking for another dog (lost Libby in July as well), but I know I'm just not ready yet.

Glad to hear little peanut is doing well!
