...dog. It's official...we've added another member to our family! As soon as we got our own house, we have wanted to get a dog-especially a beagle. We've been looking for one but have been pretty unsuccessful until recently. About a month ago there was an ad in the newpaper for some, but when we called, our call was never returned. A few weeks ago we heard from a friend back home that their neighbors were having a litter and we were pretty excited until we thought about how we were going to get it and get it home (12 hours with a dog does not sound or smell exciting to us), so we decided not to persue it anymore. Well, on Thursday, there was an ad in the paper again for beagle puppies and we call, once again, to find out that there were two males left of the litter. We talked about it and well, here is Opie! He's a 13 week old tri-colored Beagle with Blue Tick markings on his legs and nose. Carson is absolutely smitten by him. He started crying when Christian put Opie in the kennel so we could leave to get get our pet supplies. The whole way to Wal-Mart he kept talking about how sad his dog was about him leaving and that Opie would be so happy when he got back. Although we have told him that Opie is an outdoor dog, he's asked us a couple of times if his dog could sleep with him in his bed and they could read stories. I have a feeling they are going to be great friends!!
