I’ve been wanting to bring a dog into the family forever. It’s been about 10 years since I’ve had a dog and it’s killing me that my son isn’t growing up with one. Pets are important to me. We’ve mostly been living in apartments and places that didn’t allow dogs, but five years ago we adopted a cat named Taco from the Fort McMurray SPCA.
And can I just say, he’s been an outstanding addition to the family!
He’s even a good sport about his Halloween Costume!
And his OTHER Halloween costume
and his other one
He’s a good sport about pretty much anything and we love him. But we couldn’t help but feel like something was missing from this little family. Now that we have a house with a yard- it’s time! So last week I made the decision to get a doggo, and on Saturday night he arrived!
Special shout out and ginormous thank you goes out to my buddy Steve Hitchins for making the five hour drive to bring him home to us, and also thank you to my friend Sarah for puppy sitting until he could be picked up!
This is Rupert! As of today, he is 8 weeks and 3 days old. He is a Bulldog & German Shepherd mix and he is quite the little character!
He likes to squeeze his little body under my coffee table, but I have a feeling he wont fit for long!
In fact, he is expected to get big enough to grow into his giant crate! (that might take a while though…)
And the best part is he and Taco even get along…kinda
Friends? We’re workin on it!
Rupert loves to snuggle, and sleep and is happiest when he can do both at the same time
Needless to say we are loving our newest little family member and can’t wait to have many adventures with Rupert!
Especially my boy! Look how happy he is!
