We picked up the J-Man to go for a ride for a surprise. At first he thought it was to pick up a piece of machinery - a grain wagon or an auger or a disk. Then he changed his mind and thought the surprise was cotton candy. Don't know where he came up with that! But he said you can only get cotton candy at the county fair and it was raining so he was back to thinking the surprise was hauling back something big. Now, this kid thinks of nothing but farming and the equipment it takes to plant, spray or harvest. I was afraid he would be disappointed with his surprise if it WASN'T machinery!
But when we got there, equipment was the last thing on his mind!
They all wanted attention! What is it with little boys and puppies? Which one is more excited to jump and run and play in the mud?
But this one stopped him in his tracks and said "I want to be your best friend. I'll love you, protect you and get you in loads of trouble. But we'll have the best time! Please take me home with you."
So we did. This is the new member of the family! No name yet.
We haven't had a dog on the place for 2 years and we all miss not having one around. But it was our son's turn and his son's turn to take on the responsibility of a new pet. Frankly, I knew I couldn't face the attachment to a new dog after our Ruby died. But look at that face ~~ I know that she and I will be best buds too!
And YOUR surprise is a GIVEAWAY! I would like to share my 'plethora' (see previous post). I'll probably add some more 'stuff' to the giveaway later but for now, what you see is what you get!
Now, I really dislike jumping through hoops in order to enter a giveaway but I'm going to play along with the most common rules this time.
1. Leave me a comment on this post ~~ 1 entry
2. If you are a follower ~~ 1 more entry
3. If you blog about it or give me a shout out on your sidebar ~~ 1 more entry (I really hesitated about this one cuz this giveaway is not as great as others I come across but I'll try anything once!)
4. And for those of you who got my hint from the last post and already left me a comment ~~ you get an additional entry!
To make all of this hoop jumping easier, you can do all of this in one comment. I read (and re-read) each and every comment I get so I think I can figure out all of your entries!
Let's see . . . I don't like giveaways that you have to wait forever for but want it long enough for ALL of you to have a chance so let's say the deadline to comment is in a week ~~ May 20th. That way the winner can do the happy dance all week-end long! AND I will announce the winner in a timely manner and email the lucky gal so you don't have to come back again and again to see if it was you!
I hope YOU are the one chosen and get as excited as a little boy with a new puppy . . .
