WE GOT A DOG!!!!!!!!!!! I don’t know how to tell you just how excited I am, although the bevy of exclamation points may help. So I decided to forget about all my responsibilities, including doing the dishes (but that’s mainly because the drain was clogged) and writing blog posts, just so I could snuggle with my girl.
According to the vet, who was awesome (Prospect Animal Clinic, Peoria Heights), Roxie is 5 months old, Beagle/Brittany Spaniel/Shepherd mix, and pretty healthy considering she came from a rescue shelter (TAPS in Pekin is doing great work). She’s a cutie, as you can see, and we’re both completely in love with her.
Today was the first day since we got her that I didn’t spend the whole day with Roxie, and I missed her so much! I don’t know how I could love her so much already. It’s probably a good thing we don’t have kids, or neither of us would leave the house! So here’s a completely unnecessary photo over-share!
