Plans for Buddy after Shelby's arrival and a Free Greeting Card!!

After much debate we've decided that the best plan for Mr. Buddy after Shelby's arrival is to go to stay with his Grammy and Papa at the lake for one week.
We were both really torn about whether or not this was the right decision but after talking to a lot of people(including some of your comments), we decided that it's best for us to get one week of parenting under our belt then bring Buddy back into the mix.

As I've mentioned here before, Buddy tends to get stressed during major life changes.
When I have moved in the past and even the week before our wedding he has quit eating and gets  what is called 'stress colitis', which is just a nice term for diarrhea every hour on the hour.
We live in a 3-story town home and I just have this vision of having that happen along with a new baby and it makes me really worried about our sanity.

We figured after 1-week we'll be more equipped to handle that if and when it does happen.

My in-laws are AWESOME with a capital 'A' when it comes to keeping Buddy!!!
Which leads me into the part of this post where you can get something for FREE!!
A free greeting card!!
Shutterfly has just launched a new brand of cards called Treat.
It makes it easy for people to create and send one of a kind greeting cards to loved ones and friends.
Perfect for those who have a holiday birthday coming up, or in our case, a card thanking Brad's parents for keeping Buddy.
They have all sorts of categories of cards to choose from.
So, here's the deal.
Today and tomorrow(November 19th and 20th) only, you can create and get one card from Treat for free.
All you have to do is go on and create your card and enter in the code: TREATBLOGR 
at the checkout.
 What's not to like about that??
I just started perusing Treat over the weekend and everything about it.

That's cute. I think that may be a very wise decision.

ohhh, I hope that works!
Is he a high maintenance dog? Does he go away a lot?

Ashley said...

scratch that. I missed the part about his stress. Ya, he might do better away!

We did the same thing with our dog.
Good decision.
Just worked out better.
