We went and got us a dog.

I am the one not so much for it. Because I know who will be in charge of this dog. Plus, I am a more of a cat person than a dog person. But the person I love is allergic to cats.

So, we've been considering a dog because the kids informed me that it wasn't fair that I got to have so many pets when I was a kid, (rabbit, rat, cats, dogs, pony, duck, chickens) and they don't get to have any.

Today Petsmart had a lot of dogs from area shelters and well... there was Seal. Weird name for a dog, but she's so sweet. She was mistreated, so she's very quiet and timid. We'll see what personality she has as she grows more comfortable with us, but I think she's going to be a good addition to our family.

She is much redder than she looks in this photo, but she has white grizzle on her and that's what's showing up in the picture.


  1. Ah, she's cute! She is a cow dog for sure. Maybe you can train her to herd your kids around. Or get some ducks for her to herd. They have such a strong instint for herding. Are you sure she is a mixed breed?

  2. Cute dog! The twins are excited for you.

  3. I love my dog. How old is she etc etc etc?

  4. Did I type instint??? Duh. Bad for someone who worries about mispelled words in newspapers, etc.

  5. Did I type mispelled instead of misspelled? Double Duh!.


I love to hear your thoughts!
