So my mom was taking care of my niece on Friday while her dad was at work. This happened to be her birthday, and although she was going to have a party on the weekend, my mom made cupcakes with her and did a mini-birthday celebration. She was very proud to be turning four. My mom told her she had to make a wish before she blew out the candle on the cupcake and she thought about it. Then she said "OK! I wish for a puppy dog!" After talking to my brother that night, my mom, who had not mentioned anything about the wish, found out that he and his fiance were dog shopping and were going to look at one this weekend! They brought him home today just in time for her birthday party. She did not know they were looking. They got the puppy from a rescue group in Ohio, its a great dane mix. 3 months old, very calm and gentle. I'm so happy for them, and had to share my niece's biggest surprise! No pics yet, but when I have them I'll post them!
