The search is over! We found Frank! I’m a mom!
On Saturday morning Brian and I drove all the way down to Lake Forest to meet a litter that I’ve had my eye on for the last few weeks, hoping Frank would be there. When we arrived, the breeder had all the male pups out for us to look at- four to be exact. They were all so damn cute, I would have taken them all if I could. But, in the end we picked this little guy because he had a playful and funny little personality- he just seemed like Frank. Sadly, we couldn’t bring him home yet because he’s still too little. I have to wait patiently until June 28th. Sigh. It’s going to be a long few weeks. I guess it will give me time to prepare for the little guy. We’re also planning on squeezing in a camping trip before we are homebound with a puppy for a few months. I’ve never raised a puppy before…am I totally in for it? Was I crazy to add this to my plate five months before our wedding?? I’m sure my therapist will think so! On the way home from the breeder I told Brian that I thought it would be nice if we incorporated Frank into our wedding ceremony (maybe he could carry the rings on his back?) and I got the look again- the look that tells me he thinks I am insane. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that I think my Frank craziness has only just begun! Buckle up, Brian.
