A looooooong process.
But now...look who's here!
|Josiah (10) giving the new puppy the first of many, many hugs.|
Josiah was excited...absolutely ecstatic. (So ecstatic that he had trouble unlocking the gate when Jason surprised him with bringing the puppy home today.)
|Josiah (10) and Grace (6) waiting at the gate. Josiah was so excited he fumbled with the combination lock for a few minutes.|
Grace was excited, too, but she channeled some of her energy into showing the puppy different things, like how she can ride her bike.
|Grace riding her bike "for the puppy."|
She also played "Silent Night" for him on Josiah's keyboard. It's been quite a homecoming for the little guy.
This puppy has been adored, hugged, and snuggled with.
And now he's worn out.
*But he hasn't been named yet--his name isn't Nemo. We're still, um, voting on a name for the puppy. A few days ago, Josiah asked me what I thought about naming a puppy Nemo, and I told him I thought it would be appropriate since we've spent a lot of time trying to find him. ;)
