Meet...The Boss!

Well we did it. We broke down and bought Tanner a dog. If there was ever a little boy that was made to have a dog, it's Tanner. He is the most tender hearted, animal loving child I have ever met. We were trying to get a dog from our good friends for him for Christmas but the stars didn't align and it wasn't meant to be. I've been looking on Craigslist and when I saw this little guy I knew he was the one. He was just staring at me in the picture asking me to bring him home. Tanner has had no idea that we have been planning to get him a dog. When I showed him the dogs picture he just about melted. I called Alan and told him we had to get him. As soon as he got home tonight Tanner, Taylor and I went to go pick up "Boss". He is the biggest puppy in the litter and the alpha male so they had dubbed him "Boss". We could have changed his name but we really think it suits him, so Boss he is. We like to call him The Boss or Boss Man. He's a Chiguagua/Fox Terrier mix and he is tiny! You just can't tell from pictures how small he really is. His mom was 12 pounds and his dad was 7 pounds so I imagine he wont get much bigger than 10 pounds. So I guess now we have 5 kids! I knew there was someone missing, here he is.

Oh my! I am not even an animal lover, but I am in LOVE with your dog. He's adorable.

He's so cute. Hannah has been BEGGING for a dog. John finally gave in and said that once our yard is done she could get a dog. The problem is we need a allergy friendly dog which usually equals $$$.

Enjoy your new little guy :)

Very cute! I am the lone hold out in our family. I've done the dog thing, and I don't wanna do it again. Good for you. You are a nice mom.

Me? Not so much!

Congrats on your new arrival
