Neal and I are proud, excited, and thrilled to introduce the newest member of our family… Theodore!
A few weeks ago, Neal and I began looking at puppies. We thought adding a dog to our family would work out best post holidays and figured looking now would help us to decide the type of dog we wanted.
For whatever reason, I’ve always wanted a Westie (West Highland Terrier), so when we learned a few weeks ago that a Westie puppy was coming in, we were thrilled.
The moment I met him, I started to cry. I think it was at that point that Neal knew waiting until January wasn’t happening. I fell in love with this little guy right away and was overjoyed at the thought of making him a part of our family.
Neal admits now, he knew he would be a perfect addition to our family and was thrilled we decided to bring him home. We technically made Theodore a part of our family on Saturday but we brought him home tonight!
So why the name Theodore? Well I’m slightly obsessed with Theodore Roosevelt and the Washington Nationals mascot Teddy. Since naming a future child Theodore was out of the question, according to Neal, I figured it was the perfect name for our little Westie!
Theodore had a fantastic transition into our home and enjoyed walking around our neighborhood this evening! He had so much fun that he knocked out the moment we put him in his crate… success!
Neal and I are so excited to have Theodore in our lives and look forward to lots of laughs, lots of walks, and plenty of love!
