Christmas Present from my Boys & Kristen too!!

My husband and I received an awesome Christmas present from our boys this year, they always give us such wonderful gifts and this year was such a special one. This is Gustav our newest family member and boy were we so surprised when we opened the box, he wasn't in it, just a dog bed and some toys, my husband and I had such a bewildered looks on our faces and then Willie my youngest comes through the door with this adorable puppy, we were both just so taken back.

Gustav, Black and Tan Piebald Dachshund

 There is a story to this puppy, my husband and I both would stop at Puppy Love from time to time, it's where we bought our other dachshund Freckles, who we totally adore, and this little guy has been there since the summer.  I was telling my son about him and how old he was getting and he really needed a home soon.  A couple of days after Thanksgiving I checked the website and he was gone, I felt sad because I became attached to him but happy that he was bought and had a new home, I told my husband and he was happy that the little guy had a new home now too. Well little did we know that new home would be ours.  Willie and Kristen went over to see the puppy and then told Alfred, Rory and Kevin, and they all agreed to get him as our Christmas gift.   They had him for a couple of weeks at their place and kept the whole thing a secret, what a wonderful present!!  Thank you Alfred, Rory, Kevin, Willie & Kristen, you are the best son's a Mother and Father can ever have and Kristen we are so lucky to have you as part of our family!!!
