Love Connection

After a long drive to Averill Park, NY on Sunday, I finally met the newest love of my life. We chose the name Brees (currently known as Thomas) after the New Orleans Saints quarter back. We aren't football fanatics, but we are in love with the city of N.O. and were visiting when they won the Superbowl. We watched how that victory lifted an entire city, and Drew Brees became an instant hero who is not only an athlete, but has a deep compassion, dedication and loyalty to the people of New Orleans. I imagine that just like 'Brady' is a popular name in New England, many newborn boys in Louisiana will carry the name Brees.

It was great to meet Holly, Leonard and of course the rest of the Visions pack. Holly was wonderful at helping me choose my little pup, and I left feeling confident that the right one will be coming home.

Yesterday I received my latest Dogwise delivery of The Focused Puppy by Deb Jones and Judy Keller and the Crate Games DVD by Susan Garrett. So my day was spent on the couch in my PJ's catching up on my reading, which is a perfect way to spend a Monday.

Yay!! I was dying of curiosity about how it went. :) I am sure Thomas/Brees will be an awesome new addition to your family!

I like the name a lot. Not only does it have a great personal story, but hopefully foretells a certain corgi will be brees-ing around the agility course!

Came to your blog via Holly's. Congrats on your new pup.

I have to agree with you on what a great city NO is. I lived there right after college (eons ago now....) and it holds a very special place in my heart. What a wonderfully unique city.
