Petey Mac

We left just after my Mom's party to go pick up our new puppy.  The breeder lived up in Rock Valley, IA so it was much easier to go from Omaha than from Des Moines.  It was a little over a two hour drive.  We pulled up to a picture perfect house, surrounded by beautiful farmland, emacculate lawn, and a breeding house that matched their own home with very nice dog runs coming from both sides.

On one side was a saint, and another on the other side.  We got excited and figured that must be the mom and dad.  The big one started barking and all of the sudden 4 more grown saints come out and all the other puppies!  It was crazy.  You had to have seen it. 

From the house came the owner carrying our puppy.  They had already separated all of the puppies from their mom the way they kennelled them.  Then, they separated out puppy from his littermates earlier hat day to help with the transition.  We talked to her for a little bit, gathered our puppy and all of his things, got a quick picture taken and headed back.

Look at him!  He is so cute!

We debated the name...

but quickly settled on Petey.  It just fit him best!

We made a rest stop.

He wasn't quite sure what to think.

But we already loved him

We got Jesse and Cheryl's house where he got to meet Charlotte for the first time! (They watched her so she didn't have to spend the whole day in the car)

Checking each other out

Hi new puppy!

He was a tired boy

He did very well his first night.  Slept through the night.  No wining.  No getting up to go potty.  Seriously awesome!  The next morning we played outside for a bit.

He was very brave around Odie and Rudy.

Awww....I love him!

So cute!

We headed home shortly after that.  He found his buddy in the car quickly. 

Welcome to tha family Petey Mac!!
