Now that we're all settled in the new house and everyone has beds - i have felt like there's just one thing missing....working from home does have it's advantages BUT it can also be a little lonely....I told mike i wanted a dog!

he wasn't super excited about that idea - something else to take care of - we go out a lot (sadly that couldn't wasn't a good reason since everywhere we go happens to be dog friendly) of course when we mentioned it to annie she was super excited.. i started looking on craigslist and showing him some pictures - we looked on lab rescue - were trying to decide between puppy and big dog - we definitely knew we wanted a lab....

soooo i was on my way back after annie's school party and passed by the spca and thought "well i'm here i may as well look"

i love rescue dogs and my black lab georgia had come from the spca and she was in i go and look what i happened upon

she looks so sad in the cage and notice she isn't jumping up on the cage
hmmmm...she's cute - i want to take a closer look please

they put her in a small room so i can hang out with her and see her temperament..
we had gone to see a dog a week before and i didn't "love" her - it's kinda one of those things - when you see your dog - you just know! well...i took one look at her
and i knew - SHE IS OUR DOG! i sent this picture to mike who was out on the golf course so he wasn't as excited as i was...he still wasn't convinced...

finally saturday morning he said "what time does the spca open? we may as well go take a look at her" (he had made me wait 2 days)

it took him all of 3 minutes to look at her and say "wanna go home?"
we decide Charlotte was the perfect name....

does he really look like someone who needed to be convinced??

and of course...annie loves her!

oh the floor's too hard for you baby? well then yea, make yourself at home on the bed....

she was even very well behaved at the farmer's market!!

seriously isn't she gorgeous???
welcome to the family charlotte!!!
