She is definitely "my dog". She follows me everywhere and we got her before our oldest was born. She was our first "baby".
My oldest son has been asking for a dog (that's not mine) ever since we moved. He even gave me this quote recently from the movie "Marley and Me"
"A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor,
educated or illiterate,
clever or dull.
Give him your heart and he wll give you his."
yeah.. he's a pro at getting his point across.
So anyway, we had no plans to add another dog to our family until after our old girl is gone... which could be a few more years. But that all changed when I was relaxing at the pool recently with a long time friend. She started telling me about a friend who needed to find a home for their dog. They recently had twins and they were overwhelmed.. understandably so. And they weren't able to give their 1 1/2 year old yellow lab the attention he deserved and needed. They had already said no to a few people who wanted him because they wanted to make sure he went to the right family.
So we went to their house and met him. It was love at first sight...
He's awesome! He's mellow, house broke, well behaved.. and loves our boys! We couldn't have asked for a better dog! And since we live in the boondocks.. he is free to run run run. We are surrounded by trees and he doesn't know what a leash is anymore.
Meet Diesel.. look at that smile! He's a ham for the camera. Pin It
