We Found Love...

There's a pretty popular song right now called "We Found Love," by Rihanna.  Everyone in my family loves it.  In fact, we've been known to play it over and over and over again, really loudly, then play it many, many times more, singing & dancing to exhaustion.  I'm quite sure we get many of the lyrics wrong, but we've got "We found love in a hopeless place" down pat.

In other news, we got a puppy!  No, we did not name it Rihanna, and yes, her hit song is relevant in this story.  Angus, a 10-week-old yellow lab has been welcomed into our family with 10 open arms.  He is laid back, calm, affectionate and incredibly handsome.  Seems rather smart, too.  The moment we saw him we knew the breeder made a good pick for us.  We've been waiting for the right guy to come along for a few months, and Angus is definitely it.  So, now we've got 4 boys and that seems just right.

The breeder is located near Hayward, so we left Friday afternoon to head up there, ate at a great pizza place, then swam & played in the hotel pool until time for bed.  We were all up early on Saturday (not sure I really slept at all, actually!), picked up the pup, and were on the way back to GB before 10 a.m.  We'd been on the road for about 20 minutes when Loic says with a sigh, "Hayward is a hopeless place.  That's where that girl must be singing about, because we found love there."  Not sure Rihanna would agree, but this makes perfect sense to me.
