A new family member...

I'm hoping to have a bit more time to catch up as soon as the school year is done. Ha! I'm living in a fantasy world.

I realized that I've never posted about Lindsey's first lost tooth, about our Florida vacation, about so many things.

One thing in particular, we are now a dog family! Please welcome our new adopted family member, Brewster!

The day we got him (back around April 1):

Brewster, our new family dog! Loves to give kisses! Brewster

Settling in...

Brewster snoozin' in my chair! Brewster likin' his new bed!

FINALLY! A fresh grooming! I didn't realize he was so scraggly! Isn't he handsome?

What a handsome boy! (after grooming!) Are you winking at me, Brewster?

The girls and Brewster

He's been doing so good! He's about 2.5 years old and was an owner surrender. Apparently he was a replacement for a previous mini-schnauzer that died, and shortly after they got him, they decided they didn't like him and he wasn't the same as their old pet. DUH! He's very well-behaved (well, except for the barking, but we knew this about the breed). He's housetrained and crate trained. Absolutely NO complaints there! He's sweet and just wants to be by you. We do need to get some training though and try to work on the barking a bit. Luckily, we have a lot of barky dogs in the neighborhood, so he fits right in!

I recently saw something that Sydney had written in school. It said, "If I had $100.00, I would_____________. She filled it in with "I would buy a dog." When I asked her about it the other day, she said her WISH came TRUE! I'm glad we succumbed to the kid pressure of getting a pet! LOL! Oh, and the non-shedding bit is awesome! I'll take the grooming with the non-shedding any day!

Three days of school left before summer vacation! I'm off to my last day of volunteering this year. Back in a flash!
