December 18th we adopted a new member into the family.
Six week old, Chocolate Lab, Frank, Franklin, Frankus, Frankie, Frank the Tank, our neighbor even calls him Frankfurter.
It took days to finally name this sweet puppy.
Having picked him up graduation weekend, several names were thrown out there. Several ISU related - Cy, Geoffroy, Freddy, some were not - Sheldon, Walter, Buddy (the elf - it was Christmas time!), Leonard, and Moose.
We finally went with the original thought from Allison when we sent her a text photo as we were picking him out, "He looks like a Frank" :-) Coincidentally, Kris had a professor named Dr. Frank, so this name fit the bill of both ISU related, and not really because we didn't think about that till later.
Needless to say, our Christmas has been a lot of fun, running around after a now 8 week old puppy.
I haven't had much time to blog, or read, but I've had a great time playing with this bouncing, biting, chewing, brown cyclone of happiness! :-)
