It Is All About Love

It is OFFICIAL- I have fallen to a NEW LOW that I can barely speak about. I have sworn for at least the past 6 years that pets were not going to happen. I have had pets and it was never a successful venture. Was it terrible pets? Most likely not. It was me. I am not a pet lover. I don't even think I am a pet liker.(grammer...what??) So how is it that you are staring at a picture of a dog??

Chloe rescued this little pup from a pool and brought her home. I thought for sure the owners would be found but that has not happened. But as the days turned into weeks, I discovered something. I still do not like dogs(too messy, too crazy, too smelly) but I DO love my children. And seeing them so in love with this little dog melted me to the point of no return. Love always wins, right? They are already fighting about who is going to take the dog when they move out- 11-15 years away! So Gracie is part of our family, a family where five people love her and one person tolerates her. But that one person adores her children loving their dog.

What could I say?

I didn't realize you still hadn't found her owners! Oh well - she's a cutie.

Awww Julie! Such a sweet post! Yep, I'm the same...well, kind of. We have two cats, but once those cats pass away, NO MORE animals. I hope I can just stick to my guns, and not let my love for my kids melt my heart. ;-)
