Meet Rugby :)

Sean and I have wanted to get a puppy and thought we would sometime next year.  Well, yesterday we decided to go look at puppies just for fun.  We’ve done this together over the last 6 years that we’ve been together, but something was different about yesterday.

We were just cruising around and immediate saw this little chocolate lab retriever bouncing around with his ears flopping.  Then he looked at us with his bright green eyes and Sean and I looked at each other and we were in love.  Once we took him into the private room to play, we knew he was meant for us.  Everyone, meet our newest addition, Rugby :)
He is just the cutest, uncoordinated, energetic, snuggly little puppy.  He loves his toys, loves running around in the backyard, follows us around the house, and snuggles on our laps when we’re watching a movie.  He is a 2 month old chocolate lab retriever and we couldn’t be happier with our new baby.  Tantalum, our kitty and now Rugby’s big brother, was at first skeptical like “What on earth did you guys bring home for me?!” But after a little bit of getting to know each other, Tantalum and Rugby were following each other around the house playing with Tantalum’s feather toys (yes, Rugby loves the cat toys!)  It was adorable.
I can’t wait to start taking Rugby on runs with me!  We can motivate each other to log a couple miles each day :) 

**Update 8/2:  I just realized this is on my 30 before 30 list!


  1. OMGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!! I demand more pictures of this sweet little chocolate ball of fluff :) (remember, don't run with the little guy till his hips set or it could affect his lifetime health!) Yay so happy for your little (growing!) family.
