Occasionally I will look around craigslist. You never know what you might find that you need! I generally look at dressers and tables and cars. Awhile back, I found myself looking through the pet ads, even though most of them generally make me sad. When I decided to switch Holly’s dog food I did a lot of research on what to get for her and found out she’s a senior dog :(. She is 12 but still playful and active. Anyway, that’s what started me looking at dogs – not so much to get one, just to look like I do at cars.
One night I was scrolling through the ads and a picture catches my eye (I wish I had saved it.) I showed it to Andrew and Madelyn. The eye catching part was that this puppy looks just like Holly did when I found her! We all agreed on that. So I called the lady and asked what the adoption would entail (she runs a rescue) and among the details, she said she could meet us at a park so we could check out the puppy in person. I asked Allan if we could and promised we would not bring home a dog without his permission – and I truly meant it. Off we go to the park and every one of us fell hard in love with this crazy bouncy ball of busyness! She’s so stinkin’ cute! We call her Luna (Andrew because he has a fascination with all things universe-related and me and M because of Luna Lovegood, you know from Harry Potter!).
Isn’t she just so precious?!?!
That was months ago, like 9 of them! Yep, I am seriously behind on posting but trying to catch up.
Luna is now a year old, and house trained, and completely awesome! We are still working on basic training, like come, and stay. She doing great with sit and not chewing on non puppy toys. She was so hyper and crazy I have decided it’s just going to take time. But she’s so dang cute and cuddly and smart. She’s a great dog! As far as being Holly’s best friend, not so much. But they get along okay so I’ll keep trying.
They suffer together (hahaha),
and they share my lap occasionally.
