The Best Valentine's Day Ever

Early Saturday morning Jon and I hopped in his car for a three and a half hour drive to Redding to pick up our little pup, Frankie. Regardless of the early time, we were both so excited and full of energy the whole way there.
Here we are waiting to meet the breeder (at a gas station in Redding) moments before getting our puppy.
We were told to look for a silver Toyota Tacoma and let me tell you there are a lot of silver trucks in Redding. I thought every truck was carrying out little one. But then we finally saw the truck that had Frankie in the back. We walked up, handed the guy our money, he handed Jon the paper work and me Frankie. I waited until we walked away from the truck and then I just started crying. Seriously. Tears just streamed down my face as I looked at his. I just knew he was meant to be ours and I was so glad that we decided to keep him, bad knee and all.

We brought Frankie's crate with us but I decided that I would rather sit in the back seat (for all three and a half hours) and alternate between holding him and putting him in his crate.
At first Frankie was nervous but he seemed to warm up to me in no time. He even fit in a little nap.
Once he got up from his nap he was bright eyed and busy tailed. Jon said that Frankie looks like he is on an episode of "MTV Cribs" in this next picture. I think it looks like he is saying "Come on in, I've got some Cristal chilling in the back."
Once we got him home we let him take in his surroundings and get to know the place. And we also cuddled him and loved on him.

After he made himself at home he took a long nap on his dog bed as if it has always been his.We have only had him for three days but he just feels like he was always meant to be ours. I look into his little eyes and I swear it feels like he is connected to my heart in some way.   
Here is some video of Frankie playing around.

The day after we picked Frankie up Ashley and Chris brought Burrito over to play with his brother Frankie. It was so weird to think that these two adorable pups are brothers, which we all agreed, made us family. We had some great laughs and more than a million "OH MY GOD, SO CUUUUTE!" and "I AM DYING!!" Ashley also took some great photos of our little man, go check them out. After they left our little guy was pooped! Which is understandable, check this out:

He is sooo adorable. And I love the videos. I have videos from when Maisie was a puppy and I like to watch them every once and a while. There's something about their small puppy-ness that gets lost in photos and when you watch the videos you remember how they used to scamper around and play. Aww I'm so excited for you guys!
