Our Newest Family Member...

Meet Palmer Tucker
We tried to think of a middle name but we decided he didn't have to have one. We got the name Palmer from- you have probably already guessed- The Palmer Building, where we got married. We wanted his name to be something that was meaningful to us in our early years as a couple. We thought about Mayer (John Mayer was the first concert we went to) or Chicago (where we were stuck on the airport of 2 days) and some various other names, but when Palmer came to mind it seemed to just fit him.

People have been asking if we were planning to get a dog and although we have talked about it before, we kinda did it on a whim. We came across a breeder who mainly bread (i don't know if this is the proper use of this word) small-dog hybrids. This seemed perfect for us since i wanted the typical small, cute an curly dog and Matt wanted something not so girly. He had his heart set on a beagle for the longest time so when we saw this little guy- a Poogle- Beagle and Poodle mix, it was love at first sight! We pick him up 2 days after we found him with no dog food, bed or anything else... Needless to say we made a pit-stop at Pet Smart on the way home!
(don't mind our kitchen in this image, it was under construction)

Do we regret the decision? Not in the least. Palmer has been the best addition to our little family and we are so glad we are getting accustomed to him before we decide to have kids. He really has been the best dog ever, sleeping through the night on night 3 and since, hasn't had an accident in the house in a week and he already listens to us so well. He was VERY timid when we got him but he has already grown out of that a ton. It is so fun to watch him run around and chase his tail and do all things puppies like to do (except chew). Plus, he is the best cuddler ever:)
