Our newest addition

Okay, I promise to finish up with our honeymoon pics tomorrow. BTW, thank you SO much for all your comments on the pics of our trip. They have meant the world to me!!

This news is so wonderful, I just can't wait to share it with you all! Today...........................................................







We adopted our very first puppy!!!!!! We met her twice last weekend, had two interviews with the shelter, did a home visit today, and she's finally OURS!!

Please meet Miss Junebug!!






Our first family photo!!


She is 1/2 English Mastiff and 1/2 Neapolitan Mastiff. She's currently 6 months old and 60 lbs. She's huge, ladies! She's going to be about 120 lbs by the time she's full grown. That should be by about 2 1/2 or 3 years. She has an incredibly gorgeous shiny gray coat- pewter would be the word I would use. We met her last weekend at an adoption event, went again on Sunday to visit, went through a huge process this week to show we were interested, and then B was able to get her today while I was at work. She's very sweet and docile and just lovely in every, single way. I'm so crazy about her! We will have some work to do because she doesn't really know how big she is, so she definitely needs training! She already is housebroken (mostly) and knows sit and stay :) Huge, right?? Oh, I wish you all lived near me so that you could meet her. I know you would just L-O-V-E her!! We do have an extra bedroom and love to entertain, so if you all are coming to Chi-town anytime soon, you can just holler!!

Right now B is laying on the floor and she is licking him. This could be the cutest thing ever!!

Mkay- off to bed for this family..............(love saying that word!) See you tomorrow (read about you tomorrow??) Mwah!!!

  1. She's adorable! I'm so jealous. My uncle used to raise Mastifs, and while they are huge, they are also some of the most loveable dogs in the world! Congrats!

  14. I can't begin to tel you how much fun your new dog will bring you. I have a Bull Mastiff he's 120 pounds. But be careful he ate a roast once off the counter when my back was turned.
    would steal my soda pop. My grandkids use to sit on him as a horse and it never bothered him he loves kids. Good luck with your new baby.
