Obviously I never follow through on my blog posting plans, so I will never make a promise about the frequency of my posts again!! Hah! I will just go with the flow…suits me better… 🙂
Some exciting news has been happening over here, though! I will just start by introducing the new love of my life (sorry, Code), my best friend, new running buddy…Sparticus! (Sparty for short)
(The first meet)
I have been wanting to adopt a dog for YEARS! And we finally did it! We went to the pound a few days before my birthday back in June and we fell in love with this little guy. We had actually picked up his papers as well as another dogs (don’t tell Sparty) but were told the alternative dog probably wouldn’t be the best for first time dog owners.
We submitted our application and were told that one other couple had applied for Sparty as well and we would get a call the following morning about whether or not we got him. We tried not to get too excited…but then we got the call! Whoohoo!
We went to go meet him and fell in love all over again. However, he had some stomach problems and had to remain in the pound’s care for a couple more days to get checked out by the vet. He had been transported up from Texas the night before we met him because we was going to be put down. They believed that all of these events and stress caused the problems with Spart’s tummy.
And then the best day of my life (exaggerating a little…but not by much), on my favourite day of the year (my BIRTHDAY), we went to go pick him up to bring him to his forever home!
He is seriously the best dog and we sure lucked out! He loves EVERYBODY and EVERY DOG! It is the best. He is becoming a very good running partner and he knows how to sit very well 😉 Really though, he is the best and I didn’t know that a dog could steal my heart like Sparty has ❤
We even take naps together…
He obviously likes to sleep! He gets bursts of energy and whenever we take him to the dog park or for a run he has a blast, but then as soon as we get home he is knocked out! It is the cutest!
He sure has made himself at home…
So that is one thing that is going on around here! I figured since he will be making multiple appearances on here I would come back from my blogging leave by introducing him all to you! I have so many more things that I want to share and a list of topics that I want to talk about but will share them on a later date!
Hope everybody has a great day!
