This sweet girl joined our family!
Although I have a heart for adoption when it comes to dogs, we decided that raising a puppy with a breed we know and love would be better for us while we have small children. We decided we wanted an Australian Labradoodle because 2 people in my family have them and they are THE perfect dog breed for families with young children. This dog breed was specifically made to be the perfect family dog, and they are!
The only downside is that this breed is quite expensive, so we had contacted a local breeder about becoming a guardian family for one of their breeding dogs. Essentially the dog is ours but they have breeding rights to her for the first few years of her life. We had been in limbo waiting to hear back from them for a while, but finally we heard from them the day before our photos were to be taken! We went and picked up our 8 week old darling and have been loving on her ever since.
That meant that she got to be a part of our family photos! But the circus that took place while taking those photos.... oh goodness. You can only imagine how interesting it was with a 16 month old and an 8 week old puppy!
Luckily we got a few good shots:
