Meet Obi

Meet Obi. The newest member of our family. He's an 8 week old Boston Terrier.
We've flirted with the idea of getting a dog for a long time. Gavin will stand at the back door, gazing out, and ask, "Where is my dog? I want a best friend." A little dramatic, yes, but it worked.
We wanted to wait until Christmas, but we also plan on replacing the carpet at the beginning of the year, so we decided to get him sooner and hopefully he'll be be housebroken by then.
Getting a dog is HUGE for me. I'm not really a dog person (or cat)...I know, I know, weird...and I don't like unicorns and rainbows either. I'm terrible. But this little guy is so sweet....but I think my children scare him a bit.
By the way, can you tell who named him? Gavin suggested "Darth Vader" but Zander said that was an evil name and people might think we're evil.
