The Puppy Barn

warning: side effects of this post include squealing, "awww"s, and passing out from shock of puppy cuteness

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!

^^^ those paws, those crossed legs, that belly, that fuzzy fur, those eyes. how could you not love her!?

^^^ she was so fun to play with! i would put her down and run away and she would chase me. she had the cutest lopsided run!

^^^ this little girl had a wee bit of a lazy eye, but it was endearing hahahaha

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

  3. so cute! i have heard some pretty bad things about puppy barn, my friend adopted a dog they threw out because it had a chipped ear or something, haha, but like how can you resist puppies?! i'm still going there! jake and i have a theory that when a couple gets married they get a puppy within the first year. like 75% of the newlywed couples we know have done it i swear! i am so jealous, i want a puppy so bad! you guys will have to go back and get one when you get married so you can support the theory! and the cuteness!

  4. John is definitely the puppy lover in our relationship too. He begs me at least once a week for a dog (actually he'd really prefer a baby but he thinks the dog is a great compromise). Hahaha.

  16. Oh my gosh, New Zealand needs to get something like this! I think I would come home with a million and one puppies though ...even though my schedule/house doesn't allow pets either haha. Nothing wrong with hiding an animal somewhere ;) Inspections only roll around once in a blue moon (in NZ anyway). Also, that black puppy is totally a Sandy. I get it. Haha.
