never say never...


Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a animal lover. Through a series of events that I still don't completely believe happened, we now own this little guy, who we named Gatsby.

I am shocked that I actually adore him. It has been so fun to discover that while you can't teach an old dog new tricks, you can find a puppy that will teach you that you really can love animals...you just have to find the right one. Not to mention the fun the kids are having now that they have something they have wanted for years and years!

Anyway, the moral of the story is: never make a final decision about what you will and won't allow in our life when it's just based on preference or the current season you are in. You never know what may change or how YOU may change that causes you to have a place in your life for things you wouldn't have considered earlier.

Ok when I clicked on this, I thought I was on Bri's blog and I couldn't believe you had given Gatsby away to your daughter. HAHAH not...well he is adorable

Hmmmmm... I am still not convinced that will ever happen at our house! Glad you are enjoying him, though!

Hoping to see you and Ed and Spencer in february still! (it is February when he enters the MTC, right?). Let me know when you need accommodations! :)

I'm shocked. And delighted. And not telling Matt (because I reeeeallly don't want a dog right now). What does the cat think?
