New Addition

That's right, we have a new addition to our family! His name is Angus and he is an 8 month old chocolate lab. Ryan and I knew we wanted a dog when we found out we were moving to Scotland and would have so much space. However, the last few months we have been weighing out the pros and cons and debating on whether or not we wanted one. They are a big responsibility! After lots of discussion and looking around we found our match. We found Angus through an online advertisement site called Gum Tree; a family was selling Angus because they were moving. We fell in love with his sweet face in his picture and we thought 'what a perfect way to pay it forward' since we had to give our dog, Ruger, away when we moved to Singapore. We contacted the family several times and decided to go meet him one afternoon and ended up bringing him home. He is such a sweet puppy and fits in perfectly with us. He has already been on a few runs with me and Ryan is having him properly retrieve a ball!
After a run with Mom! He was pooped!

We have a huge field by our house without sheep or cattle (for the moment) so lots of room to run and play!

My boys

Scotland is a very dog friendly place so he should be able to come just about everywhere with us and there are great kennels for him to stay when we are away. Looking forward to some great times with this sweet puppy! Oh and I've had several people ask what we will do with him when we move....bring him with us of course. He will be a great Scotland souvenir with a great Scottish name (Angus cattle is from Scotland).


  1. Congratulations!!! He is so cute! Can't wait to meet him:)

  2. He's precious! Can't wait to meet him. Let me know if you ever want to get together for a doggie play date. I'm sure Bailey and Angus would tire each other out:-)
