Earlier today my husband comes in with the lap top to show me something. Usually when he brings me the lap top to show me something it is some type of must have boating, fishing, or snowmobiling thing he has to have so I quickly said NO! I haven’t totally mastered the art of saying no, but I do pretty well with saying no to these things.
Well when I looked at the page there was a cute little pooch. We have been talking about getting a dog for the kids for a while, but I just hadn’t said yes yet. We used to have two dogs when we lived in Georgia, actually two dogs and one cat. When we lived in Georgia we were out in the country so it was easy to have pets.
But, since moving to Michigan I have been reluctant to have a dog. Our old house wasn’t the best situation for a dog. It was close to a highway and we lost two dogs at this house so I just didn’t want to go through that again. It is hard on the kids and so we kind of pushed the doggy subject out of our minds for a while. Since we moved into our new house, we have been talking about it a little more. I have been procrastinating on it so I had time to think on it.
When he showed me the dog he liked, he asked me if I would rather get a puppy or rescue a dog from the pound. I felt better about rescuing a dog. It is nice having a puppy but I felt better about getting a dog from the pound. My kids are really excited and our little doggy seems to be fitting in just fine. He is pretty easy going and hasn’t growled or barked yet. He has, however, been marking his new territory. I hope he is actually house broken but if he isn’t it’s nothing we can’t handle… Right? Someone say yes.
If you want to see our latest moo here he is.
He still doesn’t have a name but the kids are leaning towards Sparky. What do you think? Should we go with Sparky or encourage them to come up with something more original?
