I'm Going To Be A Mommy!

September 23, 2013 - Liz Skoczylas
Over the weekend, Nick and I got some very exciting news... We are going to be adding to our family!

That's right...

We are getting another puppy!

Fooled you.

Anyway, Nick and I have been talking about getting a second dog for a while. We've been browsing for rescue dogs -- which is what Nick really wanted. I wanted a puppy, and a girl. We found a sweet-looking rescue on a website who was younger than Ramsay, and decided to check in with our landlord about bringing another dog into our family. Unfortunately, before we had a definitive answer from our landlord, that dog got adopted.

Shortly afterward, we found out that the breeder we got Ramsay from had a new litter of puppies -- yorkie/cairn mixes, who had the same father as Rams. My cousin and her fiance adopted one. We got lots of pictures of the two puppies that were left in the litter and both fell in love with one of them. The only problem was, we still hadn't gotten an answer from our landlord.

Last week, Nick and I mentioned it a few times. And then, Friday night, I got a phone call. We were allowed to get a second puppy!

Saturday morning, we met the two remaining puppies. And we fell even more in love with the one we had liked in the picture. The puppies will be eight weeks old this week. We can pick ours up Saturday.

And so, the official birth announcement...

To Nicholas and Elizabeth Caldwell, on Aug. 1, a son, Harley Caldwell. Grandparents are Chris and Dave Skoczylas and Bob and Yvonne Caldwell.

We keep telling Ramsay he is going to be a big brother. He's been growling when we tell him. He's also been extra cuddly on Nick and I, so I think he understands something's up. After we picked out Harley and came home, Ramsay attacked me to smell all the new-puppy smells. I can't wait to see how he handles having a "little brother." We are so excited!!
