One could say I have a lot going on right now.. planning a wedding, getting married, selling my house, buying a new house, running a blog, a jewelry line, on top of my everyday responsibilities of being a mom and everything I’m involved in through my community. Yikes. Don’t get me wrong, every single one of those things are such a blessing and I’m so thankful that they’re all “good stresses”. However, adding another animal to our zoo was pretty much at the bottom of the to do list. I guess the saying, “when it rains, it pours” really is true!
When I came home from church on Sunday Tyler surprised me with this sweet puppy that he found out in the middle of nowhere in South Carolina. My reaction was a mix of, “Have I been drugged? There’s no way he’s serious and there’s actually a dog in my driveway,” to “He’s cute, but when are his owners going to be here to pick up him because he’s not staying with us.” His fur was matted with goodness knows what, you could see every bone in his body, and you could tell his poor paws were in bad shape as well. We would be a perfect foster family for him until we could find someone to take him! Well, somewhere between giving him his first bowl of food, his first vet visit, and an (expensive) trip to Petsmart, we bonded. His monogrammed “Nash” bed will be here next week and we’re officially WAY out numbered by animals, but (as I’m trying to remind myself daily!) what fun is life without a little bit of chaos? 🙂
PS– Does anyone have any guesses as to what kind of dog he could be? Anyone done the blood test that tells you? Let me know in the comments!
