I love dogs.
I think every boy should grow up with a dog, if at all possible. There are many lessons and comforts a dog brings to the life of a boy.
I found this sight the other day. It was too precious to pass up not capturing it.
Samuel trying to make sure Reilly was smiling for the camera. Reilly was trying to figure out what Samuel was doing, but letting him do it anyway.
So, Joe is allergic to everything. I mean EVERYTHING. When he comes over, he is totally pumped up with drugs so he doesn't die sneezing on us.
His mom is also a big believer that a boy should have a dog. But when you are allergic to EVERYTHING, the situation doesn't really lend itself to achieving the goal.
Well after much research, she found a non allergenic dog!!!!
Meet Jack!!!! (or Toby) (Or Toby Jack) ( Its not been decided yet) Still.....he is a cutie pie dog!!
He is a Havenese and he sure is cute. He will only be about 15 pounds soaking wet after a big meal, but Joe now has his dog. And both boys are thrilled!
Tonight we went over a friend's house for Christmas. I know, I know, its the 30th. But since they are Catholic, they celebrate Christmas until the Epiphany (Jan. 6) So, their Christmas parties last long into the New Year. We had such a great time. They have 7 kids so far. 6 girls and 1 boy. It just so happens that their son is exactly Samuel's age.
And so tomorrow is New Years Eve. We have been invited to several places, but for the first time, I just want to be home. I am too depressed to celebrate.
But I sure hope you all have a wonderful New Year!! May the blessing of our Lord Jesus be upon you home, and may this coming year bring with it all the hope & grace God has to give!
See you on the flip side!! :)
