Nope, we're not building on to our home. We have a new addition to our family--a puppy! We have been talking about getting one for quite awhile and then our oldest son decided that a pet is what he would like for his birthday so we started a serious search. We found one in Paris, IL who is 3 months old, a Jack Russell Terrier/Beagle Mix. He's a VERY good dog. He's very close to being completely potty trained--as long as you let him out frequently and watch him after he eats. He's the right blend of active/cuddly. He likes to play and run, but he's not constantly chewing on the kids or jumping on them and he doesn't just sit there shivering..lol I think it's going to be a good match for us. At least I hope. OH and he likes cats, which is quite important considering our daughter has a cat..lol Now the cat isn't so crazy about him, but she'll come around.
