Puppy Proposal

Recommended Posts

On December 22, 2009, our nearly 15 year old yellow lab named Joey passed away. We knew he was ill and had been looking for a puppy to add to our family before he passed. As all of pets have been rescues, we were hoping to find another rescue puppy, specifically a male yellow lab like Joey. Unbeknownst to me, J found a puppy and was able to bring him home on December 23, 2009. Well J is very sneaky and he didn't say a word to me about finding a puppy. Rather, he picked him up and took him straight to the vet's to be checked out and boarded until Christmas morning.


Christmas morning, we woke up early and headed down to open presents. J was insistent that he wanted a glass of egg nog before we opened our presents. So I went to the fridge to get him one, but there was none to be found. What I didn't know was that J had taken all the egg nog the night before and hid it in the garage. J said he really wanted egg nog so he was going to run out to the store to get some. I thought it was a little odd that he wanted egg nog so badly on Christmas morning that he would run out to get some but didn't really think much of it (still too sleepy I guess).


J returned about 45 minutes later, explaining that being Christmas morning he had to drive around to several places to get the egg nog. We sat down to open presents and J brought me over a big wrapped box with a big red bow on it. Just as he was bringing it over, I heard a little whimper. Well, our other dog Winston was across the room so it couldn't have been him. I got all excited, thinking J had got me a puppy. There was an amazingly sweet card with the box but because I was sure there was a puppy in the box, I have to admit I didn't read it too close. I opened the box and sure enough, there was a beautiful 8 week old yellow lab inside. However, when I started to pet him, I noticed a pretty ribbon around his neck. It immediately registered in my brain that the ribbon said Birks on it. I excitedly grabbed the ribbon and started turning it around and sure enough, there was my beautiful engagement ring hanging around the puppy's neck. J asked me to marry him and I of course said yes. It was definitely the best Christmas ever.

I guess I should add that, as you probably figured out, J was out picking up the puppy, not egg nog. The egg nog was his excuse to leave the house on Christmas morning without me being suspicious.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
