And doggie makes three!

February 21, 2010

Yesterday was such a happy day! We adopted an 8-month old, miniature poodle mix from the Solano County Animal Shelter. He is so happy, energetic and downright CUTE! We named him Charlie. I love animals and have wanted a dog for FOR-EV-ER now, but the timing was never quite right. Well, now that we are settling into our new house (which has a big yard that pretty much goes unused) we started searching the shelters for a lil pooch to call our own. We looked in Sacramento, but we ended up finding our little guy way out in Santa Rosa! We’d seen him online and when we met him in person we fell in love. He was worth the trip!

Here I am with the adoption papers! We were just waiting for the vet-tech to bring Charlie out to us and make the long journey home!

Our first picture together! Charlie being distracted. He was so excited to leave the pound!

He may look big but it’s mostly fur! He’s so cuddly and fluffy! I like these photos because right before they were taken I asked Geoff, “Take a picture of the three of us.” We don’t have any kids (yet!), so it made me feel like we were officially a little family now. That makes me smile.

Once we got home and he finally got a chance to run free he was having a blast! He ran all over the backyard as fast as he could!

Geoff and I are so excited to have little Charlie in our lives! We can already tell he’s going to be a great dog. He loves to be around people and follows us around the house all day. He likes playing with his ball and cuddling up on the couch with us. We are so happy to have him!

Congrats to you both! My husband and I have two rescue dogs and they are the best things that ever happened to us! Charlie is so lucky to have you all and it looks like he’s already fit in perfectly! Enjoy him! :)

Congratulations on your sweet new puppy! I found your site months ago via your wedding dress post on Craftster, and I just keep coming back for the gorgeous and happy pictures — such great pick-me-ups!
If you’ve never had a dog before, I would recommend this book: http://www.amazon.com/Talk-Your-Jean-Craighead-George/dp/0060006234/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1266876546&sr=8-1
It’s a kid’s book, but it’s got a lot of great information about how to be and how to act around your dog to keep everybody’s roles clear.
You guys look like such a happy family already… enjoy your new house and dog!

OMG! Adorable! I check your blog from time to time (fellow SWPB member-holla!) and I just saw this post. I have a poodle mix as well and your little munchkin looks just like mine!

Be sure to post more pictures of him :)
