and her name shall be called...

So it's official: I am a new aunt again.

Yes.

Apparently for the last 9 months my sister has been unknowingly carrying the next big thing to hit the Carden household.

No. Seriously, you guys will believe anything.

They got a PUPPY!!!

This is awesome since it happens to be the next best thing to having one of my own. It's like training wheels for the soon-to-be-puppy-mother. Much like being an aunt to actual children, except I'm no soon-to-be-mother to any of those.

I'm holding out until I get a house (possibly this year), or until I just can't take it anymore and I break down low enough to pay the exorbitant pet deposit plus adoption fees, shots, food, clothing, bedding, toys, pet insurance, etc...am I leaving anything out?? Motherhood is expensive. Aunthood is soooo much better!

Now all she needs is a name. GMan wants to call her doggy. JBelle wants to call her Clara. David wants to call her Taffy. I want to call her Sweetmamalicksalot. Malia wants to never name her in hopes that it's never been done before and she can rock with the likes of the artist formerly known as Prince. Who knows what's in store for this nameless pup....other than a severe identity crisis at the age of 10 weeks.

Actually, the gestation period for dogs is only 9 weeks . . . I had to google that one. I didn't know what it was, but I was sure that it wasn't 9 months. Just say'n . . .
She is cute.
And I vote for the suggestion of "Ginny" for her name. But, I'm also pretty sure that my vote is quite worthless.
See you sooooooooooon. Hope they have named her by the end of the month.

Congrats...now comes the true test of being an aunt--how much you can spoil! :)

We settled on Ginny yesterday afternoon. And you're more than welcome to help out with her expenses if you feel so inclined ;)
