big changes

This was one of the most recent conversations between Josh and Huntleigh:

J: Do you want a black puppy?

H: I want lellow puppy.

J: How about a black puppy?

H: (a very thoughtful pause) No. I want lellow puppy.

J: (very persistent) Are you sure you don't want a black puppy?

H: (equally persistent) I want lellow puppy.

This dialogue went on for quite a bit longer than is interesting, but it was just so funny to hear as they were in the living room and I was in the kitchen. Eventually, the brainwashing worked.

J: Okay...well, we're getting a black puppy.

H: Black puppy? I want black puppy.

She's coming on Monday. We've already named her Kate. Are we crazy or what?! I've never had a dog in my entire life, so I told Josh he would have to train me as well as our puppy. I also told him that technically I will have nothing to do with her until at least the end of February.

I am so excited, and can't wait to meet Kate! What kind of puppy is she?

Last night before we went out, we asked her, "So, Huntleigh, are you getting a black puppy?"

Her answer: "Lellow puppy."

Single-minded ... just like her mom ...
