He's finally here!!!

Today finally came! We have been planning this for 6 months...We are so excited for the opportunity we have to raise a little pup for a year for Guide dogs for the blind! We feel it is a great chance to serve others and have fun at the same time! Anyways we drove down to SLC to await the "puppy truck." We got there early and had a picnic with our other puppy crazy people in our club. We did not have to wait long before the truck was spotted coming down the street 30min before we expected it! Then the fun began! We all stood by the trucks door like kids in a candy shop. We waited and one by one the driver called out our names and presented us with our charge! We had so much fun watching and waiting. Michelle, he called..this is your big boy "JENSON." My goodness he was so so big! He is only 11 weeks old. Needless to say I was hoping for a runt, but got a giant! We were the 3rd name called so we were pretty distracted for the rest of the distributions!

Anyway we finally made it home. This was the real test...introducing Griffin and Lady to their new foster brother... It actually has been going really really well! I expected lots of chaos and barking. We have had a little barking but things have been relatively smooth!

We are going to try and keep a weekly blog on Jenson's progress. We get him for a year so we are going to make the best of it and enjoy as much as we can! This week we want to just get him adjusted to our home and we want to get Griffin and Lady adjusted to him. Anyways here are some photos for ya! We will have more later. Today has been unforgettable!!!
