DoubleShot of Texas + 1

August 29, 2010

Matt –

I can only think of a couple of reasons why it would be acceptable to leave you readers in the dust over the past week and a half or so.

  1. Somebody directly related to DoubleShot looses all 10 fingers in a horrific knuckle cracking accident.
  2. An anonymous donor gives $10,000,000 for DoubleShot to be shut down for fear of complete blog-market domination.
  3. Worldwide internet provider screwup.
  4. School starting.
  5. Adding a member to our young family.

Before you go completely bonkers and start whispering to your office buddies about the new scandal at Baylor, check out these pictures of our new baby girl, Elly Belle Wilson (we decided changing her last name from Brenstein to Wilson next summer might confuse her puppy sense of identity).

Oh hai Mom!

That’s right! Our newest blogger here at DoubleShot is Elly Belle! We decided that if we were going to raise a puppy, now was the time. With medical school and a new job looming this time next year, we couldn’t take care of a brand new puppy also. But with a year under our belt it won’t be a problem.

The day we came back to Waco, we made the ever-dangerous trip to the Waco Humane Society. It was automatic. Well, I mean for us. Poor Elly was so scared of everything she could only cuddle and shiver. Because she was so young, we couldn’t officially adopt her. So for the past couple of weeks, we’ve been “fostering” her until we made a “final” decision.

How could this POSSIBLY need two weeks to decide on?

To make sure we weren’t pressuring each other into a certain decision, it went unsaid for the first week. But shortly after that, we knew we both wanted to go sign those adoption papers as soon as we could. And we did. The moment we take Elly in for her shots and surgery next week, she’s officially ours!

She is in deep love with my duffel bag when it is filled with socks and undershirts. She climbs up and passes out on contact.

You will be getting tons of updates about our new addition, as well as more posting in general. Now that our school year has started and we have a week of handling our schedule under our belt, we will be able to find a lot more time to let you guys into our daily lives. Until the next time, here are some more pictures of Elly!

She loves Mr. Bear. Clearly she was meant to belong to the Baylor Bear family.

Her new room. She is adapting well to crating.

    You will not regret crate training her. That was one of the best decisions we ever made with Rookie. Just make it a happy place with treats and praise!
