Meet Zoey

So, it went something like this:

"Mom, can we go to Petsmart to just look at the dogs"

"Sure, because I'm soooooooooo NOT ready to get another dog.  We are just looking so I don't want any tears!"

"I know, I know.  Just looking"

And I was serious.  Totally serious.  We had to find another home for our almost 2 year old dog in May and as a first-time dog owner, it was terrible experience.  So, I was definitely not ready to take on the challenge again. 

Then while looking at these yippy dogs in the kennel that were up for adoption, I went to pet one and Zoey decided she was going to roll over on her back and look up at me with those sweet eyes.  The girls saw my sliver of interest and pounced.  And then dad was cornered ("you said when mom was ready we could get a dog").  And so after a couple of hours of no's and tears, and maybe's and are you sure's, Zoey came home with us.

And she is so so sweet.  How anyone could have dropped her off at a kill shelter I'll never know. Welcome to the family sweet girl!



  1. yes, how could you not bring her home? Look at those eyes. Have fun with your new family member.

  2. so cute! welcome welcome niceykins!

    & thanks for being part of the blog-a-thon, nicey!

  3. I am so a dog person, and cannot imagine my life without one....your children are gifted to have sucked you in like a butter tart (totally Canadian sweet)....I love her. Ihave a westie as you know and there is nothing like the smell of a puppy....except maybe babies!
    Glad to see you blogging again...I missed you!
