We got her!!!





We are so excited! We went to meet her tonight and the couple liked us so much they let us adopt her right then and there! The "mom" was really sad to give her up, but they live close so we promised they could visit anytime. She is even cuter in person and has such a fun personality. She is a 4 month old boxer lab mix but really looks part tiger. I do believe she is going to be a good fit for Dan and I. They named her Selena, which is pretty, but doesn't roll off my tongue very easily, so we are thinking Selena for her middle name, but are looking for a first name. We are sort of leaning towards Brynn or Brindy, but are definitely up for suggestions..so share your ideas! We are so excited to be able to take her hiking and running and biking and for her to really be a part of our family. Thank you to Dan's older brother Jamie who cured him of his dog allergies so we could get a dog! I will definitely keep you updated on her training and cuteness, but for now I gotta go, I want to play before she gets to tired!

I like Brindy better than Brynn. Sorry I couldn't come up with anything more original. :)

It's Roxy! if she doesn't have a name yet how about Portia?? Or Daisy...or Heidi Sue that has a fun ring to it...or Peggy. Scarlet would want you to name her cinderella.
