Introducing the newest member of our family

I am beyond excited to introduce to you the newest member of our family - Finn! He's an 8 week old Samoyed. As mentioned in this post, my husband had to drive 14 hours in one day to bring him home. I never thought this day would come. You probably don't know but my husband is severely allergic to both cats and dogs. The kids have been begging for a puppy for years but we always said no. Plus, I am not really a pet person. It's true that as you get older, you become more mellow (lol!). We caved in and said yes. As soon as we saw his pictures, it's over! We're madly in love with him. The kids promised to help out with the puppy and they have been doing a wonderful job. Our family has grown by one and we're beyond thrilled.


  1. Is he hypoallergenic? How have your husband's allergies been? I would like to ask because my kids want a dog but I am allergic. My in-laws have a cockapoo which is supposed to be hypoallergenic but I am still allergic. Hoping this might be an option

    1. Yes, Samoyeds are hypoallergenic. Surprisingly, my husband's allergies have been really good. A sneeze here and there but the puppy does not bother him at all. Every time we visit my in-laws, he would be up all night sneezing (they have 2 cats). Before taking the puppy home, he would even consider taking an allergy shot but thank goodness, he doesn't have to. Right now, there is absolutely so shedding but that might change as he gets older. I hope that helps!

  2. What kind of dog is this? So beautiful.
