"Mom said we can get a dog so we're going to start looking".
Jerk. Because he's like that.
We, (and when I say "we" I mean Rob) has been online almost every night looking at Kijiji in both Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Alberta looking for dogs. For the longest time the only dog we could find that fit our (MY) requirements (smallish, short hair) was a beagle, and *I* didn't want a beagle just as much as my hunter husband wanted it. And then we found "Juno". Juno was listed on the Meadow Lake Humane Society website as a scottie cross. Rob had a scottie dog when he was growing up, and honestly I always said if we were to get a dog it would be a scottie because of the short hair and size. Scotties are not known for being the best with kids, which is why we never considered one. And let's face it, most of the time the only place you can get a scottie is through a breeder and they are not cheap. We emailed the society, and after many emails back and forth we decided to fill out the application of adoption. We received an email the next day saying that we had been approved to adopt, and off we went yesterday to Meadow Lake to meet her. Honestly, I loved the fact she is only 13 weeks old, that way we can train her the way we want, and she can grow up with the boys. She had a bit of a rough start in life, and was rescued by a social worker in a neighbouring community. She has many scabs on her back under her fur which are tender to the touch, so we have been gentle with her in that area but overwise she is very loveable and friendly. Colby is madly in love with her, and it's cute to see Joey laying on the floor with her. I said to Rob tonight that even though she has only been here 24 hours, it feels like she's always been here.Meet Maggie.
