Welcome Home, Scout

Our little family of three grew into a family of four pretty suddenly. David and I had been discussing the possibility of getting another dog, but it was only chatter. It was really important to David and me that we rescue or adopt a dog in need of a good home. Then, out of the blue, a couple days ago my mom's friend knew someone {a registered breeder} who was wanting to find homes for her dogs she used to breed.

We called the lady and she said she'd call us this weekend to come and see them. I totally thought she wasn't going to call and even after she did call, I totally thought we'd pass on getting one of her dogs.

But, when we went to see them, one of them jumped out at us. She was spunky, sweet, and just a month older than Niko Harper.

We've got a lot of love waiting for her and need to make sure she's ok tomorrow at the vet. While the lady was nice, the doggie just wasn't receiving the proper care she needed there. David and I are hoping Niko adjusts soon and that we can all become one big happy family.

So, without further ado, here's your first look at little Scout. Her name's inspiration comes from the great book, "To Kill a Mockingbird." She's not too sure of us yet, but we're hoping she warms up to us soon.

And, we're hoping her hair grows out fast, because she is going to be one cutie-patootie little furball : ) .

xoxo

TKAM is my absolute favorite book in the world. "don't judge a person until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Ugh. Love it. And cutie pie dog too!

So precious! Eeeeeeee!

Don't worry if Niko takes some time to warm up to Scout! FiFi snubbed her nose at Bunny and now she cries if Bunny is not around! :)

Love Scout! Is the Harper in Niko's name a ref to To Kill a Mockingbird too (as in the author Harper Lee)? Can you tell I ADORE that novel too. =]

May I kiss her smooshies? That's FC speak for "Look at that adorable face." Heh!
