Family Complete once Again

If you noticed in the header picture we have an addition to the family. I received a chocolate lab puppy yesterday for my Mother's Day gift. Now I could tell you I was completely surprised and had no idea but, it's not nice to lie. We saw an ad in the paper a week ago for 6 week old chocolate lab puppies. I kept the number and tried to forget about it. Tom and I talked. Augh.... Why did I have to look in the paper. There were two boy and one girl. The familiar voice and every bone in my body said. Don't do it. Biscuit is fine. She's started eating, you nave planted nice flowers, the yard just might recover soon. Biscuit doesn't climb the fence, she doesn't even go out the back gate if it is left open all night. She doesn't dig, she doesn't bark. Life is fine.
Then my heart says....."come on." and what do I do? Leave hints on where the number is and Tom calls. I begin to reason......Audrey is bigger and likes to train. She's been doing a good job with Biscuit, Labs are great family dogs. Little dogs just aren't right for us (yappy, snappy, chew toys!). The boys are bigger and rougher. They need a well tempered dog they can 'abuse'.
My life isn't complete without Chocolate.
So enjoy the slide show and say hello to Hershey!

Happy Mother's Day! So glad you found Hershey. I was saddened to hear about Buddy.

We're still missing our Hershey. She was a wonderful addition to our family.

Amy, first of all beautiful family picture -- you've totally lost weight! You're wasting away girl!

And are you sitting down????....

Our very first dog was a chocolate lab -- named Hershey! :) Enjoy him! He's just adorable!

Hey Kym, Did you see Michelle's comment? Here I thought I was so clever with the name forgetting that Michelle had a chocolate named Hershey who they lost this past Fall. I also thought I was so clever when we named our yellow lab Biscuit. I even have pics of Audrey reading a Biscuit book to the puppy. I wasn't until weeks later when my cousin asked if we'd named her from the children's books that I made the connection. Duh!
