We're expecting!!

Well, Ben and I finally pulled the trigger and put a deposit down on a white lab puppy! I cannot tell you how excited I am!! He should be born in May and ready to come home sometime late July or early August. Obviously the new pup needs some personalized gear...I'm already on it! I better get going on his needlepoint collar, lord knows it will take me until he is about full grown to get it finished.  

Any suggestions for names? I like Mr. Darcey, Ben said no! He likes Darby, but I think that is too girly. I also like Remington since he will be a hunting dog, but Ben doesn't want people to call him Remy. I can't imagine how hard it will be to agree on a name for a child!

Ok WHOA - my jaw dropped when I saw this title, but alas, I was fooled!

Either way, CONGRATS!!! Dogs make life so much better!

Aw I love labs! My boyfriend is a professional hunting dog trainer:) Don't know where you live but check it out!

Ohhhh my gosh! That is absolutely so exciting! My fiance and I just put a deposit down for a silver lab that should be due sometime this month! It's so exciting. I love those engraved dog collars! I have a few for my pup (obviously a neutral for year-round and a teal for Spring) and they are really well made and adorable. Congrats on your new addition to the family, lab puppies are the absolute CUTEST.

My name is Katie, BTW, and I've been following your wedding journey and just loving all of it! Your wedding is going to be a thing of beauty, just know it. I just started blogging my wedding experiences and I'd love any feedback!

Yup, totally thought you were preg. But a puppy is just as exciting!! I can't wait till we get another dog! I actually like the name Remy. :)

That blog post title ... you are too funny. I was like "wow, go girl!" before seeing the word "puppy" HAHA!

He is going to be so loved!

Yay for puppies! They are the best babies to expect ever. :) I love the name Remington too.

Congratulations! I can't wait to see pictures. I adore labs.

What about Wesson?

Y'all are too cute, and you know I think Labs are the best dogs of all!

Now I kind of want to make Max and Soph new needlepoint collars... You should do promo for M's! :)

HAHA.... I'm dying!! Totally thought a babe - what a surprise that would be! Bahhhh!!!!

And I cannot handle this collage you've put together. You (and the pup) need all of it!!

Congrats on the decision to get a pup --- you will be so glad you did!! My advice, having a 9 year old lab myself, is to get lots and lot (and lots!) of chew toys early on! :)

Congrats, guys!! The good news is that this pup will be a lot easier than a babe and great practice for when that time comes too!
