This is what happened at our home today.

His name is Winston. My daughter had no idea and was over the moon.

I am excited to meet Winston. I can’t imagine how excited she was. Winston better join our founder meeting tomorrow.

Awesome! You didn’t want to involve her in the process of picking the pup? Not that surprises aren’t fun as well.

We didn't want to commit to getting one unless we were sure, and were willing to wait if need be. It'd be a tough process for her if it ended up to be drawn out. I'm a believer in picking the puppy, and then getting emotionally attached. Next time, if there is one.

My parents brought home a black lab puppy to surprise me at about 12 or 13 years old. Dad said, "go around the other side of the car and help your mother with the groceries".

The bag in her lap had the puppy in it.

Named her "Christian's Black Magic", and called her "Magic".

Such a great surprise!!

Yeah they get so sad when things fall through, really have a tough time handling disappointment at a young age
