Yesterday the boys got their early Christmas present. I was 100% incorrect on what I thought each of their reactions would be.
Brett (who I thought would be totally stoked), was a little upset because his dog wasn't Griz and we wanted a Griz. Our response was that Griz is Grandpa's dog and Stella is your dog. He wasn't so sure about it, but after a couple of hours, he really warmed up to her and is already trying to "train" her.
Colton (who I thought wouldn't be totally stoked) was totally stoked. He's asked me no less than 3 times if this is really ours to keep and if we were playing some sort of joke on him. He's been hands on with the feeding and playing and snuggling and just so sweet to her. Mike worked overnights last night so I prepared for a million bathroom trips and soothing a sad pup. Again, I was wrong. She went to be at 10:30, I took her out at 3:30 and then we were up at 7 to eat. Not too shabby.
