When we got out of the car to walk across the parking lot, we spotted the cutest little dog. And it looked like a terrier (which are supposedly hypoallergenic). Well, we walk over there, and the lady says it's a schnauzer mix (which, we wanted a schnauzer). In that instant, I remember thinking, "We're going home with this dog." So, I played with the dog, to see if it might start bothering me.
As we stood there talking to the lady, I could just see the thought process going on in Brice's head. His logic: We had been looking for a dog like this, and we'd hate to not get it and then it be gone when we came back.
So, we had a serious heart-to-heart right there. We had to make the decision: If this dog ends up making me sick, are we going to be able to bear to give it back.
We decided to give it a shot and see what happens. So, we adopted that precious pup. As of right now, it's 9:50 PM, and we've had him since 2 PM, and we've seen no signs of allergic reactions...fingers crossed.
Our precious puppy!
Just hanging out.
He's really laid back for a puppy.
His name was King, but since he's only 14 weeks old, we're going to change it to Leo.
Short for Leonardo. Of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Chowin' down on some dinner.
I convinced Brice into getting the giraffe toy.
My boys playing on the floor.
Tired after a long day!
Big ol' paws!
We're not sure how big he'll get because we don't know what type schnauzer he is (Giant, Standard, or Miniature)
Sleeping good! Dead to the world, even with Brice yelling at the tv watching football.
Keep your fingers crossed that I don't have any allergic reactions this week so we can keep him!
One of his papers says he's a schnauzer mix, and another says he's a terrier mix, and both of those types are supposed to be hypoallergenic. He doesn't shed. And I was the one holding him mostly today because we spent a lot of time in the car. He was all in my face, too. But I haven't shown any symptoms yet! So, fingers crossed!
Brice told me, "I'm going to pray real hard every night that you don't end up allergic. 'Cause if I have to pick between you and the dog...I might pick the dog..."
And even though we love our new furbaby, we can't forget our first furbaby, Zoey:
Leo checked her cage out this afternoon, so we'll see if they get along.
