we've adopted a puppy!



lise and i took the plunge this weekend and went to visit a labrador retriever rescue here in cincinnati. we had talked for months about getting a dog but never very seriously. this past week we decided to go for it - we wanted to get one from a rescue and this one seems like a great group of folks.

i was up late thursday night filling out the 4 page application - we figured it would be a couple weeks before we heard anything and got through the process of interviewing, etc. hah! friday morning we got the word that we were approved and we could come saturday and visit!

the first two dogs we wanted to see (Cassidy and Aero) were not going to work out for us. :-( we had decided before going that we weren't up to getting a puppy (too young, too much training, not house broken, wanted an adult dog that maybe no one else would want) but we were willing to look at them. BIG MISTAKE!

Dolby was adorable. of the 8 puppies they brought out (all at the same time) dolby was the sweetest, most laid back and cool dog of the bunch.

we didn't bring him home yet - he's being *ahem* "fixed" this week - between that and our need to dogproof the house (and buy lots of stuff for him), we'll be picking him up on friday.

excitement! nervousness! happiness! fear!

make an appointment to come see him next weekend.

    Why'd he need to be fixed? Is he broken?

    haha - well, if by "broken" you mean "still has nuts" then by golly - dolby is busted.

    men everywhere will mourn openly and observe 5 minutes of silence on tuesday in memory of dolby's malehood.

    You're a new DADDY! ;)

    Dolby looks adorable, my coworkers agree as well. Enjoy the thrills of pet parenthood, it's quite fun. We may be right with you in a few months (a dog, NOT a baby!). ;)

    Congratulations!

    What an *adorable* little pooch! I can see he loves his rope toy just as much as Baron loves his! Better stock up on tennis balls--they don't last too long! *grin*
    L&K, Moldy-Wan ;-)
    Baron says WOOF!
