Another dog

We are currently "fostering" another dog. To make a long story short, the owners decided that they didn't want the dog anymore and were going to take him to the pound. Crystal couldn't stand the thought of it so we now have an approximately 5 month old full blooded yellow lab puppy! His name is Luke and so far he's actually been a good puppy. No chewing and minimal whining.

Now, some of you maybe wondering what is wrong with Maddie. We wanted to get her professionally "groomed" and told them that we wanted the "summer cut". Well, needless to say, I nor Crystal realized what the "summer cut" was. Obviously the "summer cut" is just shaved. I could've done that! Poor little thing looks pitiful.

Of course I think it's funny and I'm pretty sure she won't be going back to a groomer. But she's still a good dog and her and Sage have accepted Luke into the pack very quickly.

If you know of anyone that's looking for a good dog, or possibly you yourself, get in touch with me and we'll get this puppers a good home!

UPDATE: (3 April) Luke has a new home. Crystal's boss's father recently had to have his long time friend, also a lab, put to sleep. He was more than happy to have Luke come to live with him!

The boy has a name!

We have finally decided on a name for the boy with only 8 weeks left until his scheduled arrival.

I never knew how hard it was to name a kid! But the name we have finally decided on is...

Samuel Merritt Duncan

Merritt is the name that I have been pulling for all along. Merritt was the name of my great great great (3) grandfather. However, my lovely wife was adamant that it wasn't going to be his first name. After many names and much discussion we decided on Samuel, as it is my middle name, and the name of my great great (2) grandfather that I was named after.

And with the pressure of naming him gone, we look forward, with great anticipation of meeting our Sam.
