I've been looking at the humane society website on and off for quite awhile, probably a year. This morning I looked at Craigslist and found a couple of interesting ads for puppies; and after lots of thought and discussion with Cory we went to meet one at a farm north of Corvallis and decided to bring him home. He's 10 weeks old, a golden retriever (not papered but both parents are), and we think we're going to call him Linus (that's what's stuck so far; but I'm still deciding, and if anyone has any ideas for something else, let us know).
After we met him, we did a Petco run and bought a few things for him, and tried to puppy-proof as best we could. Tomorrow we need to find a crate for him; I'm kind of thinking a travel crate would be nice but they're kind of expensive. We'll have to get it before we go get the pup in the evening, so we can crate train him more easily.
I already called him Remmy once. Funny how it's been almost three years and I can still do that so quickly.
