A New Addition

No, not that kind of addition - although, now that I'm engaged, every time I tell someone that I have big news they ask if I'm pregnant.  I am not with child.  Can we move on, please?

Great.  Let's move on to the new baby in the house.  Dear readers, meet Charlie:

Isn't he everything we wanted?  We were supposed to go see him last week, but his foster mom lived really far away so it ended up being easier to meet at yesterday's adoption fair.  We arranged to get there early so that we could claim him first, which we did, but as we wandered around after having signed all the papers it was wonderful to see so many labs looking for their forever homes and people looking for their forever dogs!  Even after we left, it was fun to follow Lab Rescue on Twitter to see what a successful day it had been.

If my Instagram feed is anything to go by, you're going to be seeing a lot of Charlie on this blog from here on out... careful, you might overdose on the cute!

If you have any questions about adopting a rescue dog, please don't hesitate to ask.  I can tell already that this is going to be an amazing experience.


  1. Congratulations!! He is a charmer- and the voice? Hilarious, but very, very recognizable, as ANY pet-person should know :)

  2. Hahahaha, I had the same voice when i talked to chloe! I miss her so much, she was a yellow lab, so hyper and the cutest thing. I kept telling myself that i wouldn't let her in the bed, but the first day she got in my house, she claimed her own pillow and was my sleep partner! haha, she laid right along the bed like i did haha, congrats on the new addition, spoil him with lots of belly rubs!

  3. Yayyy! So excited for you. BTW, I've decided that I'm going to start prefacing things with "INPB" (I'm not pregnant but) since that seems to be all people think when I have exciting news! haha

  4. Oh my gosh - so much cuteness!! Can't wait to see more of Charlie on the blog! Congratulations on the newest addition - I hope you all have a blast together :)

  5. Adorbs. Looks just like my bosses dog, whom I spend A LOT of time with at work..should be working...whoops!

    I just got my first dog EVER last year, a rescue too, don't know her history at all, but 8 months in, everything is FINALLY becoming normal. Love animal pics on Instagram, it's pretty much all I post too. And I always "Like" everyone's animal pics (so over food pictures). Keep 'em coming!

  6. I LOVE HIM!!!! More Charlie videos...pretty please! ;) Labs (in my humble opinion) are the most wonderful companions in the world. My two baby girls are spoiled to the maximum amount of rotten!! My hubz & I wouldn't have it any other way. They are the love of our lives!

    Enjoy every moment with him! Can't wait for more of him here on the blog.

    Happy Hump Day!
