Our new Pup

We have gotten a new dog for our family. We've given it a lot of thought, and finally came to the conclusion that it would be a good thing for our family. The little guy is about 4 months old and came from an employee of Aaron's. He's a mutt, and we were told that he his part Chihuahua, part wiener dog...Chiwiener?

He's pretty cute, and the boys love him. Delilah, however, does not like the dog much, mostly because he won't stop liking her face when they are in the same room.

Now, we know that Deacon's name is not a typical dog moniker, and I will tell you how it came to be. Four and a half years ago Aaron and I were trying to decide on a name for Vaughn. I loved the name Giovanni, and Aaron loved the name Deacon. Neither of us could concede to the other's preference, and the only way we could move past it and try to think of other names we could both love was to agree that we could name future dogs Giovanni and Deacon. So now, obviously we have a dog and it came time to pick out a name, and neither of the boys had a strong urge to name him Bolt or Pluto (The stuffed animals they have loved for the past year,) and Aaron instantly remembered the name he wanted so much for his own son, and gave it to the dog :)

He's fun and we look forward to wet-nosed, fury love for years to come.
