Because just look at this puppy:
We really do adore her in spite of how she’s turned things upside down around here.
The girls STILL come home from school and get over-the-moon excited having her run back and forth to them, waging her tail so hard that her whole body is waging and shaking with pure glee.
She provides endless entertainment for the neighborhood. Here’s one of the young women holding her doing yoga for YW one night:
These girls cannot get enough of her.
And she puts up with them so well.
And she just “graduated” from her training…
…which means…drum roll: we have to keep training 😉
But at least we now know what to do and how to act and react to this new little family member of ours.
My sisters and I joke that I have a “mantra” I repeat to myself every morning:
“I like dogs.”
Repeated three times.
They joke that I’m not ready for the “I love dogs” mantra quite yet, but I’ll get there.
But really, I do love this dog of ours.
She has added something to our family that has a lot of potential 🙂
And I like it.
