A new member of our family

Yep, you read that right! Nope, I am NOT pregnant....LOL
We have found a puppy that we are going to adopt. We will be heading up to Arkansas to pick him up. It is a 4.5 hour drive for us, but there wasn't any puppies available closer to where we live. We live in the sticks in Mississippi. This puppy is a Corgi/Australian Shepherd mix. I grew up with nothing but Australian Shepherds and my husband had a Corgi/Sheltie mix growing up. Friskie, my husbands, dog came to live with us when we got married and passed away about 4 years ago. He was 16 years old. So, we have not had a pet since. We finally decided it was time for another dog. Not only for us, but for our children as well. We want them to have a great pet companion.
So, we go tomorrow to adopt this cutie. He is 8 weeks old and is ready for a happy home. I think that he will give us a another reason to keep taking evening walks. We do P90X currently, but our evening walks give the kids a chance to be active and allow us to visit and chat about our day. My daughter typically rides her bike when we go walking while I push my son in a stroller.
The big day is tomorrow and we are very excited about this new addition to our family!
