This has to be, hands down, the most exciting yet anxiety inducing thing we have done to make our house a home.  Did the feature image give too much away? We got a dog!  Well we don’t have him yet, but soon.  I found our precious little guy online via Petfinder and it was love at first sight (for me!).  We drove a little over an hour to meet him last weekend, took him for a walk (if you can even call it that… he dragged us for most of the 20 minutes we spent with him) and we signed the papers with the Quinte Humane Society to adopt him.

We have to wait until Saturday to pick him up since he needs to get neutered before he comes home, so we have spent a good chunk of our week thinking of how to welcome our new family member.  This is how far along we are so far:

The pup now has a cozy sofa to hang out on when we hang out on the human couch.

He’s even got a little friend.  A bunny!

Some treats will be waiting for our little guy, and a toy to really keep him busy!

We’re also prepared for the surprises he will be dropping for us (not in the house, I hope!!)

And finally, we’re ready for the walking, and potential (temporary) pulling that is bound to happen.  Needless to say we are VERY excited!
