So this happened this weekend …. my husband and I were bored and took a trip to the local animal shelter, the next day we brought our new 8 week old little boy puppy home. Crazy?, yes! But we couldn’t resist. We think his name will be Ollie. We have tried out several names and this is the one that seems to fit the best, at least so far.
Our current dog is getting on in years and we have been toying with the idea for awhile, but not seriously and we were wanting an older dog, not a puppy. Funny how things work out. Our older dog, Sadie, is not overly thrilled with this new addition. Hopefully in time she will grow to love him as we do. Right now she is totally trying to avoid him.
Spring/Summer will be the perfect time to get this puppy trained. I am not working and Steve is in between jobs and taking the summer off to really explore different opportunities and what he wants to do with the rest of his life. We are blessed that we have the means to let him do this and the chance to spend some fun time together.
It is a crazy world we live in …. you never know what is going to happen when you wake up in the morning.
