New Puppy joins the Family

I did not post all last week because we got a puppy!!! She is adorable.
We had a Boston Terrier, we got him when we were 22-23 I think. We had been living together for 2 years, we did not train him at all (our poor roommates!) and he was this amazing surly old man all the to the end. Now we have 80lb Lab mix, who doesn't realize how big he is. He is well mannered for the most part, we are not super trainers, but he has the basics down.

For about a year and half we have talked about getting another dog. It's not an easy decision, we have busy lives and animals are expensive and take a lot of time.

We made the decision last November to start seriously looking at adopting a rescue dog. We both wanted a puppy, for multiple reasons. I had filled out about a dozen applications, not realizing it was rolling up on Christmas and never got a call back. Being like fourth or tenth in line for a pupper.

Day 3

Day 3
Slept terribly. Sun burn, bad back (pain pills only do so much), and Odin kept invading D's space, so she was forced to invade mine. We have self inflating individual mattress. They are very nice, compact, and somewhat comfortable. (You can find them at REI.) They are built for one body only. Somehow Odin's head ended up on D's bed roll and his feet on his own, the rest on the ground. So i would attempt to pick him up and nicely toss him back on his bed. This happened 3 times. 
I declared this morning to have a vote on going home this afternoon, in a half asleep, grumpy tone. 
It's unanimous. We are going home today. The bugs are out in full effect. Mosquito's have eaten the tops of my feet. I need a shower and a gallon of aloe vera.
Steve and D caught fish this morning making it a better end to the trip. Packed up and pacing to go. Counting down the time to take a shower. You really appreciate how amazing showers and your own bed is after you camp. I am unbelievably happy to be able to use a toilet with actual flushing capabilities.
