Early Christmas present

I have a friend who is a breeder . She was looking to rehome one of her females and offered her to us because she knows that we are a calm loving household and she would be well cared for.

We wanted a buddy for Cooper but since Raven was way up in Manitoba and we're here in NJ I didn't know how it was going to happen. I was thinking that maybe a friend whose kids go to school in Minnesota...maybe they would give her a ride. Then Tom said we could take a drive in the spring.

This past weekend my son was supposed to come home from Memphis but he couldn't fly into NJ because of the snow. He got in very early Monday morning. He came into the office on Monday morning and said, "I got your Christmas present." Pulls a doggie from behind his back.:)

He made all the arrangements, flew to Minnesota, rented a car and drove 4 hours to North Dakota, drove 4 hours back to Minnesota with the dog, waited in an airport all day and flew home. Kept her hidden in his room until we woke up !!

I am computer challenged, hence the lack of pictures. I got the cutest one last night too--my son on the sofa with a doggie on each side. If I can get him to show me how to get them from the camera to the computer I'll put them up.

My boy is 27. He's a catch (if I do say so myself :laughing:) Very thoughtful, gainfully employed, spends his spare time visiting the gym and volunteering with youth programs and he's about to become a home owner!

You guys are :evil:!


Congratulations on the new addition, joeysmama! Your son is such a wonderful guy to go through all that trouble! You obviously raised him right! :D

Can't wait to see Raven!

As for the camera, do you know where the picture card is? Most computers have slots on the front of the PC box that will accomodate the camera cards--you just plug the card in and a window opens that lets you look at the pics on the card and drag and drop them onto your computer :thumbs up

Not that I'm pressuring you or anything :p :laughing:

Ok, so who is Raven? Was that the dog u wanted to get? And is that the dog your son went and got as a surprised? Just a bit confused here, but what else is new? LOL

I'm glad you've got such a nice surprise, your son sure sounds like a sweetie!
