ADDITION TO OUR PACK

We are excited to announce our newest addition is set to make an appearance this May and coming to join our pack in July.

Brandon and I started talking about a dog in December. We started doing a lot of research on what would be the best for our family and for my allergies specifically. An online quiz said that our perfect dog would be a Golden Retriever. Knowing that piece of information, I asked Tracy and Robyn, my sisters who both have Labrador Retrievers, why they selected that breed. Less grooming was their answer. However, Robyn decided to add a little more to her answer, stating that if she got another dog again, she would look at a Puggle or a Labradoodle.

From there, more research and we typed in those breeds and looked at the pictures. A family vote was taken and Dawson and myself really wanted a Puggle and Dad, Faith, and Kate wanted a Labradoodle. All January, we debated back and forth. The Puggle didn't rate as well for allergies, so I gave on that point and agreed on a Labradoodle. Still worried about the size, Brandon found some miniature Labradoodle breeders in Utah. We think that this will be the best fit for our family and can't wait to take this new experience in life!

Our dad, Birch





Knowing that this could be a shock for all of our friends and family, we figured that we would give you time to process it. We have the first pick of the litter. Energy will be our deciding factor (we need a medium to low energy dog for our family), but we are hoping for a boy. If you have names to think about, be sure to leave us a comment.

Fun. Puppies are a ton of work but my kids were so happy when we got our dogs 2 years ago. Autumn just got a puppy and he is funny. They are a lot like kids with different personalities.

Sounds fun! And your kids are old enough to take on the responsibility to care for it well so it should work out great. Our brother-in-law has a dog they named Rev and we have always thought that's a cool dog name! Good luck!
