Meet Oakley!

For Christmas this year we surprised ( I mean really surprised!) our boys. Jeff picked up the dog from the breeder Christmas Eve when the boys were asleep. Oakley slept in our bedroom that first night so the kids wouldn't hear him. In the morning Jeff went down by the Christmas tree first and then the boys came down. Once they hit the stairs and looked over the railing the look on their faces was priceless. Ethan said, "Did we REALLY get a dog?" Like it was a stuffed animal or something. Too cute. Oakley is a German Wire-haired Pointer (a bird dog).

Awww...he's a cutie!! I love the name Oakley!! What a fun time for your boys! We have LOVED our dog sooo much. Bob and I have wondered why we drug our feet for so long. Oakley Meiner is a PERFECT family addition :)

We love Oakley! ...and we love it even more that he's YOUR dog (with all the responsibilities) but we can love on him and have our doggie needs filled. Sammy was so sad to go this morning. He must have told me one hundred times that the "doggie bite me" and then he would laugh!

I want a dog so bad but Dan says no. He's right though, we probably shouldn't. :(

So I still haven't emailed you our address yet (me=loser). I will soon. Our computer is finally up and running again. Love the dog! Tell Jeff that Curtis is a school principal now (if he didn't already know).

Steph, I named the dog...but we all got to vote. He came as Ben. BEN. That's not even a real dog name. Remember my friend Jessica Clary? Her dogs name is Solomon and I always liked that name. It got me thinking about brand names and Oakley popped in my mind. It's perfect, right? He just looks like an Oakley to me.
