I thought I’d depart from the normal routine and introduce you to the newest member of my family… Dimple!
Dimple is a rescue dog, a stray found living in the streets of Philadelphia, then transferred up to the “country” in the hopes of finding a loving home. She sure got one!
My kids have been asking for a dog for as long as they’ve been verbal and cognizant of pet ownership. If you’re a regular reader, you will remember when we tried to compromise with a hamster (read here for the outcome of that decision), but we’ve finally decided that the timing is right, the kids are old enough and responsible enough, and my husband hasn’t progressed far enough in his OCD that he is wearing tissue boxes on his feet (YET).
This dog is supposed to belong to the kids, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I am going to have a new best friend once school starts. As I sit here and type, I am able to snap this shot, right next to me:
Happy Thursday everyone!!
I’m thinking about it and, yep, a dog roaming around this house counts as one 🙂
