We Got A Puppy: Meet Atticus Finch!!


Oh what a FUN day this is!! That’s because yesterday we drove up and picked up our brand new PUPPY!!! :) :) Meet: Atticus Finch Marantz (#attaboyatticusfinch) It’s all kind of a crazy story really! We had been wanting a second puppy for a LONG time, and we had officially given our deposit to the breeder a few months back. But we had been planning/thinking that our litter wouldn’t be ready until the Summer. Well three days ago we got an email from our breeder, and she said she had been planning on keeping this puppy out of the Spring litter for herself… but she just couldn’t shake the feeling that he was for US! So she called to see if the timing would even be right…and it was on the very day that we had been talking about was the beginning of so much space & MARGIN in our calendar because we’re going to be mostly home for the next several months! Ahhhh I would say God definitely had a plan there! The perfect plan. And it’s just such a crazy amazing reminder of how FAST He works when he’s ready to make a long held prayer & dream come true, and how quickly things can happen!

And maybe the craziest part of all, is that it happened nearly the exact same way when we got Cooper! We thought we were going to be on a waitlist for six months, the breeder had held him back as the “pick male” of the litter to breed him & compete him as a show dog, and then let’s just say that they realized he only had one of something he was supposed to have two of :) So the day she decided to sell him was the day we emailed, and nearly 11 years later he has been one of the greatest JOYS of our life and the BEST things that ever happened to us! So I’m taking all of that to say, we think this was MEANT to be and we can’t wait to see how that joy doubles (triples, quadruples!) now that we’re a little family of four! :) :)

So here’s a quick picture we snapped last night when we got home! And you can expect a LOT more to come after the weekend as we all settle in together!

Oh my heart! What a HAPPY day!
