a new blog and a new dog

the new puppy!

Saturday we drove 30 miles to the next town over to pick up our new beagle puppy. He and the kids were very excited as we drove home, so much so that he peed on me 3 times on the way home. Nothing like breaking in your new owner. (Let’s not talk about our floor – I’m just thankful that we’ve got mostly hard surfaces.)

He’s 3 months old, cute, sweet and he can clear a room like nobodies business. We’re pretty sure that his name is going to be Tuck. He’s sitting snuggling me with his sweet puppy head as I type this. awww…

And if you’re surfing with bloglines, you may want to check out the new look. Now you know why my wrist has been bothering me! I’m still testing, and working some things out (especially in Internet Explorer), but I’m glad to be done. Just let me know if you find any bugs as you browse around.

    Welcome back! I love the new look and Tuck is precious as can be. Is there some sort of magic code for categorizing posts like you do? That’s amazing. Blogrolled you recently so I can find you easier. You’re my fave blogger :) I love the way you write.
