Meet Lizzy

This past Sunday after church we went over to Steph's for tacos and my favorite, queso with the family. Little did I know what we would be taking home that day. Dad brought in four of the golden puppies that they have right now. There was a family that came over to pick out their puppy. Bryan and I saw that there was one light tan one left and the rest were darker. I said that little tan one is pretty cute.

So as the family arrived Steph prayed Lord give Meagan and Bryan a sign if they are supposed to have a puppy. That sign was going to be if that family didn't pick out the light one we would potentially be taking her home with us.

I kept watching them and peeping on them as they held all of the four different puppies. As most of you know I'm not a big animal lover so this was very strange to me. I told mom we'll just get one from the next litter and then she informed that there won't be a next litter. Bryan gave me his own little puppy dog face and asked sweetly if we could take one home.

After the family picked out their puppy I walked outside to see their selection....there the daughter was with a darker colored golden in her hand. Now this was actually becoming a possibility. My skilled salesman father brought the light puppy inside for everyone to goo goo and gaga over. Bryan held her and was hooked.

I finally caved and said we could take her home (I think that Christmas, being a giving time of year affected my decision). Emily said that we should name her Lizzy. That was perfect because I just dropped Elizabeth from my own name, so now we were gaining a Lizzy back into the family.

Here is our new little baby, Lizzy:

Oh my gosh Meagan you will LOVE having a golden! We've had ours for 3 years now and he is literally our child. I can't tell you how much we love him and what a great dog he is!
