Last week I wrote about picking out a puppy and the heartbreak our family felt when that puppy died from Parvo.  Well, thanks to a very determined husband, we found a beautiful, happy, healthy puppy that I instantly fell head over heals in love with.

Introducing Gunner, the newest member of the Roller Coaster family (and the cutest black lab in the whole wide world)!


Gunner had no problems settling in, and we’re having so much fun getting to know each other.  The kids love him so much that sometimes I have to tell them to leave him alone for awhile.  I’m sleep deprived from middle of the night potty trips, and my hands are covered in puppy teeth marks, but he’s worth every bit of it. 

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go take a nap.  Like they say, mommy should sleep when the baby sleeps!

  1. He is adorable! Im sure he will bring your family so much love and joy. I remember those middle of the night potty trips with our dog. It felt like having a newborn. Pretty soon I really will have a newborn and the middle of the night potties and feedings will begin again!

  2. Oh, he is so stinkin' cute! I love black labs. My first dog – my best friend growing up – was a black lab. They have a special place in my heart. Congrats to you and Gunner!

  3. So cute! My husband and I have raised 2 puppies so I can really relate to the long nights of no sleep and puppy teeth marks:p They are so much fun though;) Happy new puppy!

  4. What a sweet little puppy!!! I know that puppies can be demanding, but they sure are worth it! Congrats on the new addition to your family!

  5. Awww! Gunner is so cute! Things always work out for the best. And he really is one of the cutest black labs I have ever seen!

  6. YAY! My hubby and I just adopted a dog this past Saturday, and he is a black lab too! I even blogged about it today.

    Aren't black labs the cutest?
