MEET THE NEWEST MEMBER OF OUR FAMILY...

THIS IS SADIE. SHE IS AN ADORABLE ONE YEAR OLD BOXER. WE SURPRISED THE BOYS FRIDAY WHEN WE TOLD THEM WE WOULD BE "ADOPTING" HER FROM OUR BABYSITTER RONDA'S FAMILY. RONDA & RICKY'S SON SHANE MOVED BACK HOME WITH SADIE. THE BOYS HAVE PLAYED WITH HER ALL SUMMER AND HAVE GROWN TO LOVE HER. WHEN I TOLD RONDA THE BOYS WANTED A BOXER BECAUSE THEY LOVE SADIE SO MUCH SHE TOLD ME THEY FELT LIKE SADIE WOULD ENJOY LIVING WITH A FAMILY WITH SMALL KIDS. THIS WAS SUCH A BLESSING TO US. IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT FOR US TO HOUSE BREAK AND TRAIN A PUPPY WITH OUR SCHEDULE. WE HAVE HAD HER FOR JUST ONE NIGHT AND WE ARE ALL SMITTEN WITH HER. SHE LOVES TO PLAY AND ENJOYS THE HIGH ENERGY OF OUR HOME. SHE IS SO PATIENT AND SWEET WITH THE BOYS. SHE WAS CHEWING ON HER NEW BIG BONE WHILE ANDREW SAT ACROSS HER BACK AND HELD ON TO HER COLLER AND TOLD HER TO "GIDDY UP" SHE JUST LOOKED OVER HER SHOULDER AND LICKED HIM IN THE FACE. WE TOLD MASON SHE WOULD BE HIS PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY. HE HAS TAKEN THIS VERY SERIOUSLY. HE WAS UP AT 6:00AM TAKING HER OUTSIDE TO POTTY! I'M SURE THERE WILL BE MANY MORE PICTURES TO POST OF ALL THE FUN WE WILL BE HAVING WITH LITTLE MISS SADIE!

They will have so much fun with Sadie! Aaron always had to have a dog, and his dog was his buddy, still is!

She is so cute! This will be a good way to give the boys responsibility plus have fun with her. Savanna has been begging for dog, but I want to wait until she gets a little older.

Sadie is a sweet sweet dog. I think she is a great fit for your family.

Mason you are doing a great job taking care of her!

You will love having a boxer, they are such people dogs and love to be around kids. Aaron, my son has a Brendle boxer that we have been keeping while he is in Iraq. They are smart trainable dogs. Lacey is Aaron's dog's name and can open the door and let herself out. She figured that out after about one week here. We left to go to town...wasn't gone long, came back home and she had let herself in as well as Gus, our other dog and they were both wet on the couch....They are GREAT with kids. If you want anymore boxers....Lacey has two brendle boxer pups left....I know you said you couldn't house break them....but let Kim do it....she is home a lot...they are cute and they need to go.

Love keeping up with you like this...we are finally home from vacation....it is always good to go....but it is better coming home.

Love ya,
Tammy

I would love to do lunch, but can I take a rain check until school starts - expaination: I have been working through lunch in order to have my Fridays off here at work through the summer.

I guess you've heard about the arrival of Billy and Crystal's new addition - isn't it great! Brings back memories of my two entering this crazy world, lol. Talk to ya later.
