Harpo Thor Decker

What did we do this Sunday? Oh yeah, got a dog.


We officially have joined the long-lasting tradition of the Deckers and Nelsons who love dogs. Harpo Thor Decker (Ryan named him) joined our family today and we just love the little guy already. He is super polite minus the two times he jumped on my white couches with his muddy paws but hey, he's new around these parts. I remind him that he doesn't own the place. He doesn't really listen.

Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies set us up with Harpo and we really dig what they are about. A super legit organization to put older pups in good homes.

We're excited for this new adventure of doggy ownership. There is a definite release of rights, freedom, and finances that comes with Harpo. On the other hand we gain a (sweet and cute) security system which was the main motivation for this step. But also an exercise buddy for Ryan and it will be smart to have a dog home with me during the day. Plus he's adorable.

So enjoy these pics of Harpo Thor-our 40 lb golden retriever mix who loves his tennis ball, likes sleeping on Ryan's feet, and is thank the Lord potty-trained!

[Let Us Sing Songs of Praise] Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

Psalm 95:1-2


  1. Seriously, he is adorable! I lOVE him already and now Rilyn won't think you are the weird aunt and uncle since she assumes that all households should own at least 1 dog...if not 4. With that cute face I'm pretty sure he is already the boss!!

  2. He is so nice! He really is the most polite, sweet little guy. Plus he has the biggest head around so we love that :)

  3. YOU GOT A DOG!!! Almost as good as a niece of nephew...actually not even close. But I'll take it for now. ;) Can't wait to meet the little guy.

  4. Linny! YOu will love him, he has the biggest head, spikiest ears and he is so polite. He did however just pee on the floor at Ryan's work haha! You will love him.

    We miss you-come home NEXT MONTH! Oh and we look forward to giving you a niece or nephew in about 6 years :)
