Okay, so I’ve never been an animal person, I never grew up with them. Well, a fish and a bird, but I guess that’s not the same as a dog. Preston swears that if we train a dog it will not jump up on people and it won’t get on furniture. This past year Preston’s really been wanting to get a dog for Maya and I’m starting to come around. We went to the Kansas Humane Society to look at the dogs (and one in particular I picked out on the internet).
This one is just a puppy. He’s a Lab/Retriever mix (and something else in there, so I guess it’s considered a mutt), and he’s 3 months old.
Preston didn’t really want a puppy at the beginning, he said they’re a ton more work, because you have to potty-train and behavior train. But it will get to grow up with Maya and the new baby, so that would be a plus.
I’m still not 100% sold on getting a dog, but I’m keeping an open mind, since Preston REALLY, REALLY wants one. And, I think it will be good for Maya (and the new baby), I was always terrified of all dogs.
And, as for allergies, the lady at the humane society said that if you keep it clean (Preston promised to bathe the dog), with a dog with this short of hair, it shouldn’t really bother me too much.
So, who thinks this dog is cute? It’s got a white strip down it’s belly and it’s paws are all white too. And, he is super soft.
