Mans Best Friend

So a few months ago we went to Oerschlins to get some flowers and they had the most incredibly cute dog we had ever seen there. So of course I don't even think I got any flowers but we did end up bringing this dog home. He has become Connors best friend. Connor has to go outside 20 times a day to check on him and pet him. He sleeps in the garage and stays in the yard (minus going to my neighbor shelley's house occasionally and eating her cat food). So all in all he is a pretty good boy. (Minus chewing up everything he comes in contact with. Including the seat on our golf cart and some Reebok flip flops that don't belong to us. Hopefully none of you are missing any. Hehe. I guess that is part of him being a puppy.) This is the first dog we have ever had and I am not a dog person (at all). But he has become part of the family. My friend Beth has taken over the Animal Control for Washington and she was telling me about how they have to put down all the dogs that don't find homes. That just makes me sick. Just think if we wouldn't have adopted Raylin he would be there in that situation. Yuck. Next time you get the itch for a dog adopt one. There are so many that need good homes. Maybe I will even get a second one someday. Doubtful but maybe. First I have to replace everything in the garage that this one has chewed up.


  1. I read your blog finally!!! It only took me 4 days to do it :) You had so many pics from your vaca I bet it took you 4 days to post it! haha! The view from your cabin was awesome and a helicopter ride- super cool. I am sure Mere will fall in love with your puppy tommorow instantly.

  2. That dog is beautiful. I doubt I could have passed him up. Honestly, I am TOtally not a dog person. But I know my girls would love it. We are close to adopting I think. One day? Who knows. Glad its going well.
