I am so glad that I don’t have to keep the secret any longer! We wanted to surprise our kids with a new puppy (and not tell them until we actually picked him up), but I was so sure I was going to spill the beans before the big day. We planned to go camping first and picked him up on the way home. I am proud to say that I did NOT slip up and they were epicly surprised (there were tears, it was awesome). And just like that “Big Ben” is a part of our family and our hearts have grown three sizes.
