An addition to our family.

Yesterday, I set out for a 20 mile run with my running buddy.  1.5miles into the run his leg was "cramped" (strained) and couldn't get it worked out, so we turned around and walked back.  Since my run was shot, and I really wasn't feeling going out by myself, we headed back to the house.  Pete was working from home so I took the boys to the Humane Society and we met Buddy.  He is a "4" yr old Treeing Walker Coonhound.  After hanging out with him for a while, we left to think about it and let Pete know. 
Today we went back, and Pete must've seen what I saw.  Because he wasn't reluctant at ALL.  
Buddy looks like a GIANT Bailey (still miss her!) which makes him GORGEOUS.  He doesn't/hasn't shown the crazy barking normally associated, and he's really low key. I'm hoping he will be my new running buddy.  

He is quite a bit taller than Tally, which is new for us - she has always been our big dog.  He leads well on a leash, and knows basic behavior. I introduced him to the neighboring dogs and he tried to play it cool in front of all the ladies.  

We are currently tossing around new pup names.  I prefer Barney (from How I Met Your Mother), Pete likes Jake.  My sister votes for Paco.  So if you have name recommendations send them our way.  

In other news:  Spring semester started and Anatomy & Physiology is kicking my butt!
Cloudy started school and LOVES it!
Ben made 97 and above on his report card again this 6 weeks.
Pete still hasn't mastered the unicycle, but is still intact!

Our wonderful friends came to visit us over MLK weekend.  Nikki brought her bike down and we rode over 50miles together.  It seems like EVERYthing we did we saw horses or cows and there were beer venders EVERYwhere.  Wes lost a tooth while he was here, and the Toothfairy brought him a Texas sized Quarter (a 50 cent piece).  We really enjoyed the visit!
