I have a very special announcement today! Michael and I bought a gorgeous 8 week old cock-a-poo yesterday. He's absolutely perfect and we're madly in love. I haven't been able to snap a great picture of him because he love being near me and inbetween my legs while I'm standing. But just know that's he's adorable (proud mama much)!
