An Exciting Confession!

I can't believe how suddenly this came up or how flipping cool it happens to be on Confessions Day, but I have some crazy exciting news I'm bursting with joy to share with you!

Do you remember when I shared this article stating the 11 obvious reasons you need to get a puppy now? How they snuggle you and cuddle you and make you feel so much better? How they're your best friend and you are theirs? 

Well, this past weekend I got the chance to watch my silly golden sisters. They are so wonderful and they bring so much joy to my world. They're the best sisters I could have ever asked for and they made me feel all of those wonderful psychological benefits of being around happy puppies that show love and affection and fill your tank to the fullest.


After hanging out with them all weekend, it made me really impulsively want a puppy of my own to be best friends with. I wouldn't say I'm an impulsive person, but sometimes you just have to listen to what your soul is telling you. 

So, impulsive me wants to introduce you to sweet, playful, silly and shy Betty! 

This six-month-old chocolate lab lives at the Oregon Humane Society and she was looking for a nice home. I said "was" because Monday after Easter she's coming home with me! (heart eyed emoji for days and days and years!!)


Doesn't she look like such a sweetheart? We met Monday and she's already 55 lbs so I may have a large lady on my hands in about a year. Do you think her name should stay "Betty"? I actually like it! 

I can't wait to get her home and get used to all of the sights and smells of my house, then love her forever and ever like she deserves! Oh, and get her into some puppy training and obviously introduce her to my golden sisters! 

What are you guys confessing today?

Linking up with Melissa as always!

OH HOW ADORABLE!!!!! i love choco labs. i really want a dog (don't tell my family that) but right now it would be too much work with kayla and everyone's schedule/routine/workout schedule. congrats on the new addition to your home!

Woohoo!!! I couldn't imagine my life without a dog in it. I go home every weekend just to see my pup and couldn't imagine my life any other way right now. I am so excited for you and Miss Betty! I think you should see how she does with that name and maybe wait a bit before jumping the gun on changing her name. Maybe you'll discover something she responds to during her first week home with you?

You totally got me!!! I was so excited for you! Plus I'm obviously biased and think chocolate labs are the best and had already started planning Bear and Betty's wedding but no big deal.....

HELLO BETTY!! How exciting! Personally, I think everyone should own a pup :-) And she'll be a great hiking partner so you're not alone.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! She is so damn adorable!!! I love that her name is Betty, you should totally keep it! And I also love that you are getting her from the Humane Society! I volunteer at ours and get so overjoyed every time I see one of our babies going to a good home. I cant wait to see one million pictures of that cutie!!!!!!!

Darnit!! SO STINKIN' CUTE- just get her!! :)

Teh Megan said...

YAY PUPPIES!!!!!
Betty seems like a sassy name, I'd keep it if it fits her, if not, I'd call her Vanilla just to switch it up.
