No...I'm not pregnant.
But in 3 weeks we will be bringing home a little baby girl that we've named Delilah. (Yes, we loved our rent-a-pet-for-a-week guinea pig so much, that we decided her name would be perfect for our little bulldog). If you're thinking, "Julie actually gave in?!!!" I know.
Here's the story:
After the Charlie-the-kitty-1-hour-pet incident, (it had lasting affects), Kate came to me one day and said, "I've been asking you for a pet for years."
(3 and a half to be exact)
"Are we ever going to get one and keep it?!!"
I talked with Joe about the possibility of a bunny or a dog. Kate has always loved everything from roly pollies, to snakes, to cuddly, furry things. I've always known she would be an amazing pet owner. We have way more space than we did before--that was always our excuse! Joe would prefer a dog over a bunny, but wanted one that didn't need to be walked 30 times a day. So, I started doing a little research. When I came upon bulldogs, I just laughed! They are so funny looking and are couch potatoes!! They can't exercise too much because they overheat so easily...perfect! I presented the idea to Joe (still laughing), and from the peanut gallery, Kate yelled, "IT'S PERFECT! BULLDOGS ARE LAZY AND WE'RE A LAZY FAMILY! SO IT'LL WORK OUT GREAT!"
I never knew we were a lazy family.
Joe began to cave. I told him there were some babies that had just been born on Valentine's Day--30 minutes away. We went to see them the next day.
Here she is at 10 days old.
Guess who instantly fell head over heals?
We have about 3 weeks to get the house puppy proofed.
We can't wait for Delilah to join us :)
