Feelin’ Furry

At long last, we have made the decision to (finally) adopt a dog. 
We’ve been without a pet for almost a year, and the house is too fur-free and quiet without something on four legs getting under our feet. And though part of me wants to get a dog-bird-cat-chickens all at once and just deal with the madness, the other part of me is smart and knows better.
So, we’re adopting a dog. A little girl who is two years old and was found outside of the animal rescue center in a rain storm. The rescue group named her “Star” because they say a guiding star led her to them. A little biblical for my tastes, but I’ll go with it, and the kids seem to like it. And D can pronounce it, so that’s a plus.
Star will arrive from the midwest via some sort of doggie bus in about a week. In the meantime, I’ve been frantically emailing Tania for advice. I think she accidentally even offered to live here for a few weeks to train our new family member, so I’ll be driving by to kidnap pick her up right after we get our little Star.
I can’t wait to eat your shoes!

Oh, this will be fun. I’ve never owned a dog! Adventure! Dog hair! Someone who will love me unconditionally and never say “You Are The Meanest Mommy Ever!
Star, we can’t wait for you to join us.

    Congratulations. She's beautiful! In my mind, homeschooling and furry freeholders go hand-in-hand.

    What a beauty!!!!

    I think we're on the same path within the next year.

    I'll be paying attention (and possible asking Tania to move in.) 🙂

  3. She's gorgeous! I might have invite myself over to meet her. 😉

    I can't wait to meet her!

    But if I'm going to come live with you and train Star I'll need a few things: Egyptian cotton sheets, my own bathroom and a constant supply of coffee, wine and Nutella. And if you could separate the blue M&Ms from the other colors, that would be great too.

    Shoot, I just want someone in the house who'll do what they're told without whining!
