June is Bustin Out All Over!!

June 3, 2010

Our June is starting with a bang!  This week is a bit crazy.  Monday we had Memorial Day. Wednesday we went to the Red Sox game.  Today we were supposed to have volleyball, but it rained out, so we went to the gym.  Friday I’m in a golf tournament!

Biggest news of the week:  WE ARE GETTING A DOG!

It’s been a long process.  Let explain . . . no too much . . . let me sum up!  Those of you in the midwest and south may not believe it, but getting a dog in New England can be difficult.  There aren’t that many strays up here due to the weather and the fact that people tend to take care of their dogs.  Many of the dogs in humane societies and rescues are actually from the midwest and southeast.  Our puppy was found in South Carolina (where Matt went to college) where she was tied up to a refrigerator after her owners moved away.  Anyway, we applied, there were calls to our references (thanks Rachel, Emily, and Nikki!) and a home visit over the weekend.  Finally we got word Tuesday morning.  So guess what we filled our one open night of the week with?  SHOPPING!

The house is all ready for her:

Her crate and toys

Doggie treats (of course any dog of mine will love peanut butter treats!)

Dog food (sweet potato and bison!)

Baby gates to keep her in the kitchen.  Her foster mom thinks that she’d be okay in the entire apartment, but we’ll try this for the first week or two.  Of course our old house doesn’t have “straight” door frames, so she might be able to nose her way out of them!

Oh, would you like to know about our newest addition?  She is a one year old White German Shepherd Corgi mix.  So she looks like a White German Shepherd, but has tiny little legs like a Corgi:

We get to pick her up on Sunday!  Many more pictures to come.  Oh how our lives will change.

    So exciting! Dogs are so much fun! And I feel your pain on the timing, when we got our first dog it took MONTHS, plural! We went through 3 different shelters too. It was all so political and ridiculous. Multiple interviews, a home interview and they tested the dog to determine if it would be good with dogs and kids….by using stuffed dogs and dolls. Not like the midwest at all!

    She is so cute! That really is a crazy, in-depth process… it’s like getting a real kid! Not like out here where they practically give away dogs for free because there are so many. Have fun with your new puppy!
