Latest Pictures of Bull's new puppy.

Bull's Getting a Puppy
Sunday, September 13, 2009

Well we have decided to get The Bull a puppy. After much consideration we have chosen a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. I doubt any of you have ever heard of such a beast but we think it is the perfect fit for our family. We found a breeder about three hours away and put a deposit on an upcoming litter for the first choice male pup. The puppies were born on September 9th, how cool is that 09-09-09. The litter consisted of 5 puppies and all 5 were boys. So we are going to Ohio to see the pups in two weeks and back again the first week of November to make our final selection. Here are the first picture of the puppies at 4 days old. Let us know which one is your favorite and we are currently thinking of a name for our new addition. We were thinking of some type of outdoors or hunting term/name, so if have any good ideas please feel free to share. Right now Landon's name choice is Cheetoh. Not sure that has anything to do with hunting or the outdoors but thats his choice.

Boy Toys!

Jeremy and Landon have birthdays this week - Landon will be three and we won't say exactly how old Jeremy will be but it also has a 3 in it, and there's a zero at the end.....

To minimize the pain, we surprised him with something he's been hankering for since we moved into our house and he hand-raked 150 bags of leaves - The Cyclone Rake! Not that it would thrill most girls but he was darned tickled over it.

This box was the teaser - the only one small enough to wrap!

The face of a happy man!

Putting the contraption together with my Dad.

This requires deep concentration, apparently.

Almost there - it had a lot of parts!

Can you see the leaves? It's AUGUST and they're already falling here in PA!

With over 20 trees on our property, this is going to be a back-saver.

For Landon's birthday, we got him his own little red tractor so he can follow Daddy around, helping with the yardwork. Who knows, it might make him a better driver someday down the road.

Right now his steering is a little crazy.

BTW he's very proud of that hole in his jeans. First worn out pair.

Papa gave him a quick driving lesson.

So did Mama...

Daddy showed him how to dump out the sticks he'd gathered.

Way cool!

Look at me - I'm getting the hang of it!

Just a sidenote - did anybody know they sell these ginormous marshmallows? Fantastic!

Happy Boys with their toys!
