my roommate marissa told me about the puppy barn a week ago and as soon as i heard about it i knew i had to take isaac! he might be embarrassed that i'm saying this...buuuuuuttt...he is the puppy lover in this relationship. i love puppies. but isaac...he loves puppies.

the puppy barn is a pet store, but instead of the puppies behind glass or in crates, they are in open tubs. so you can pick them up, pet them, and play with them! it's like rent-a-puppy (you utah people know what i'm talking about) but free!

i told isaac that i had a surprise for him and so when siri said "your destination will be on the right in 0.25 miles," he pressed his face up against the window and watched the right side of the street like his life depended on it.

"arrived."

isaac started busting up laughing! he was almost crying because he was laughing so hard. he couldn't believe my surprise was to take him to the puppy barn because that's something that guys are supposed to take their girls to, not girls take their guys hahaha. but secretly he knew this was the perfect surprise for him!

and he absolutely loved it.

at one point isaac handed me the puppy and said, "can you hold her for a second? i'm going to go get my wallet." i had to grab his arm to stop him from buying a puppy! and i reminded him that his apartment doesn't allow for pets. and neither does his schedule. haha!

isaac insisted that this puppy's name was sandy. yes, this black lab...not the golden one. i don't try to understand.
