We got a dog!


The title says it all: we got a dog yesterday!


Say hello to Dempsey!

Andy grew up with dogs and has wanted one since before we got married. On the other hand, I definitely did not and am actually pretty scared of them. They are very overwhelming to me, and I really don’t know what to do with them. I’m usually about 90% sure I’m going to get bit at any time.

However, I knew getting a dog was pretty much non-negotiable for Andy, so I eventually got him to agree to hold off until this summer… since he works in a school and has summers off, I figured that would be the best time to get a puppy and train him/her.

We’ve been looking all summer, and it’s been quite a process! Finally, we found this collie/shepherd mix at a local farm. I told Andy we were just going to “look”…

Dempsey & ANdy…so you can see how that ended up ๐Ÿ™‚

Does anyone just go to “look” at a puppy andย not buy it? I would have to guess “no”…

We’ll see how the next few days go…I am still apprehensive, but the hubs is about as happy as can be! ๐Ÿ™‚
