We have a new addition in our family!!!!

Introducing...... Gracie!!!!!!

We have a new addition in our family as of last night. Scott won our two year battle and we got a puppy!!!! We were planning on getting one around Trevor's birthday, but this kinda all worked out so perfectly. We were worried if we waited we wouldn't get what we wanted in such a perfect way.
She is a Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua mix. I know you are thinking.... what??? That is what we thought too, but really she looks all jack russell and just has the chihuahua in her to make sure she doesn't get too big. She was born on the 8th of December and is just 8 weeks now. She is a cute little thing and loves to cuddle. And much to Scott's dismay (since he did all the work and begged for a dog for the last couple years), she loves me more. She follows me around and sleeps on my shirt, in her bed. It's kinda cute actually.
The boys love her... almost too much. They have not left her alone today and the poor baby is all wiped out right now and sleeping. We have a lot of work ahead of us with potty training, but Scott promises he is up to the challenge. She is currently pad trained, so we won't even take her outside for a couple months. She can't even begin to see over the snow anyway!
So that is our new addition. I will have to post some pictures when she gets used to us and will sit on the kids laps. She is a little scared of them still.
So, we'll keep you posted on our new adventure. And I am sure it will be an adventure!!!!!

She is a cute puppy! Congrats! LOL Scott going to make her a hunting dog? I would have been amused to see the Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua meeting LOL.
