Jared is amazing! He's a very patient man. Let me begin by telling you a quick story. When we first starting dating, I informed Jared that when I get married one day that I was going to get a dog. When we were engaged, pretty close to our wedding day, I reminded him that I WAS going to get a dog. Over the last 3 and 1/2 years I have reminded him periodically that I was going to get a dog. Jared always had an excuse to not get a dog... we were renting. Well, guess what? We're no longer renting. Jared started using the excuse that we were too busy to care for a dog. He surprised me a couple of weeks ago and agreed to FINALLY let me get my doggy! I was shocked. Excited, but shocked. Yesterday, the day arrived! We got our puppy. His name is Buddy. He is a cockapoo that was born March 19. That makes him seven weeks. I love him!! Buddy has already been a lot of work, but so worth it. Here are a few pics.
