Well I did it, i paid a deposit on our future love, and now we wait and continue training the kids on how they need to behave with the new family member and how careful they need to be with their toys etc. retraining ourselves on puppy proofing, Maple was so easy their is no way that will happen twice in a row lol and reaffirming Maples training and figuring out what we need for a second dog, how we will travel now with two rather then one etc. Thank goodness for all this stuff to do or all the waiting ahead would be too hard!!! I am so very excited!!!!!!!!!!!
