I started this blog to keep family and friends informed on all projects
large or small pertaining to our house.
I guess in a way todays blog is about our new additions...
Through the years
we have always told the kids that when we bought a house and settled somewhere
we would get a dog.
Since July our youngest son Gage has reminded us of this on a regular basis.
Whenever he found a ball he would put it away for his future dog.
Occasionally he would ask me...
"Mom, where do you think my dog is?
What do you think he's doing?"
It's enough to break your heart!
So the time finally came when we had to address this "dog" thing...
I searched the newspaper, our local bulletin boards, then finally the internet
which led me to an animal shelter 46 miles away.
I searched the listings of available dogs
and found a sad faced puppy staring up at the camera
(you know the picture I'm talking about)
I called to see if she was still available and made an appointment to see her that Saturday.
When we arrived at the animal shelter they led us to the farthest row of kennels
and there she was...
looking up at us just like the picture.
What we were not prepared for...
was her twin sister a few kennels down with the same look on her face!
Gage was thrilled!
An hour later we left with both puppies.

They are a lot of work for all of us.
There are times I question our decision to get both.
until I see Gage with them and know that he finally has his dogs.
They are inseparable.
We were told that they were brought into the shelter separately
so you can imagine our delight in reuniting them and keeping them together.
Our home is full and so are our hearts - Michelle
P.S. The animal shelter listed them as German Shepherd / Corgie mix,
but we recently found out that they are Belgian Malinois.
