We have four paws in the house again

It’s been quite some time since I blogged anything here, and I believe some of it was a little bit of depression every time I came to the site and saw my last post.  We had lost our dog Peanut to cancer, and whenever I came to the site to write, I never really had much to say.

We recently started looking to give a dog a forever home because we knew we wanted to get a dog in the summer months to get them acclimated to our house and the dog run and everything before the fall weather and rains kicked in.  Nothing like trying to house train a dog when outside is completely soggy.

Well now we have filled that furry void with our new dog, Pepper Pawts.  We adopted her from Cache Creek Animal Rescue a little while ago, and she has fit in perfectly with our family. She’s got a wonderfully mellow personality, loves to snuggle, was house trained and young enough to really be able to be a part of our family for a long time to come.

She’s made our house a home again.

You see, I’ve always loved dogs.  And except for a couple years in college, dogs have been a part of my whole life, a faithful companion.  In addition, Jen and I have had up to four dogs in the house for the entirety of our marriage.  There’s just something about the unconditional love of a dog that makes life better.

So now things are back to where they should be.  Pepper got her forever home, and we got a new family member.  Makes coming to this blog worthwhile again.  Maybe that means you’ll start seeing me post more regularly again.  Don’t hold your breath, but I do feel energized to start writing again, so hopefully it will manifest itself here.  Thanks Pepper.
