… who’s to say they’re wrong? And of course, by “we,” I mainly mean me. Jeff – that poor guy – he’s just a great husband who’s willing to come along for the adventure, the adventure of adopting a third dog!
Note: I spared all of you a faux-pregnancy announcement because Jeff said it was a bridge too far, and then possibly threatened to find a new, less crazy wife. 🙂
She’s our little one-eyed wonder!
When I saw this sweet and very shy little lady at City Dogs Rescue well, she just tugged at my heart strings. I think it took approx. two seconds to send Jeff her picture and information. Can you blame me?
Now I know what you’re thinking (at least I think I do), THREE dogs? I get it. It’s not for everyone. In fact if you’d told me a mere five years ago this would be my life I would have laughed – yet somehow, here we are!
And the obvious follow-up question, at least according to my friend John is, “how the [insert curse word here] did you get Jeff to go along with this?” So in the interest of full-disclosure, I’ll admit he wasn’t overly thrilled at first, but with a little convincing he was open to letting us sign-up for City Dogs Rescue’s foster-to-adopt program.
Spoiler alert: since we signed the adoption papers today (a very mutual decision!), the whole foster part didn’t last long.
So Friday night we set out to get some last minute items for our little arrival … … with our totally natural smiles and all. ↑
Because Saturday was the day we brought Miss Pearl home! And although it’s only been a few short days, she’s starting to make herself comfortable … … especially with the other two fury creatures in our lives. ↓ Thankfully, they seem to like her too!
As for Jeff, he’s taken quite a liking to the little lady. After all, it did only take us a few days to decide to keep her.
So, while we don’t know all of her history (not that we love her any less) here’s what we do know about Pearl (formerly Peanut):
- Between six and eight years old
- A whole 12.8 pounds
- Chihuahua with likely some other breeds mixed in
- Lost her eye to an infection, however she was already blind in that eye so it wasn’t much of an adjustment for her
- Rescued from a shelter in Smyth County, VA and brought to City Dogs Rescue sometime last fall
Alright, so next time you hear from me I’ll be telling you about our fourth dog. I kid, I kid. No more dogs, I promise. 😉
