Meet Butterball

Whew. It's been a crazy few days.

To make a long story short, we have been wanting a puppy for quite some time. We finally got to the point where we were ready to start planning for one, maybe after Christmas. We checked with the Kennel that my parents' puppy, sweet Ringo, had come from, because we love him so much.

Turns out, they had no pregnant puppies, but had quite a few puppies that were ready to go home now. When I came home from covering an opera theater dress rehearsal Thursday night, Mr. Jones told me the news.

On Friday, we found out for sure that we could pick Butterball up a few hours away at noon on Saturday.

While Mr. Jones worked on Friday, I got busy cleaning and preparing for our sweet puppy. It was a whirlwind day!

We left home at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, and had Butterball all picked out and riding home with us by 11:30. There was no question when the breeder brought out the four puppies we could choose from. We knew immediately that this was our sweet baby.
