Falling In Love With A Puppy

Fell in love with a puppy yesterday. It just happened. Wasn’t planning on it, already have a dog, got enough on my plate. But there she was — a 12 week-old Australian Shepherd mix — that looks more like a koala bear than a dog. Love at first sight and home to meet the family. My boys flipped for her. My dog Sammy (a husky/shepherd mix) was a bit less inviting. But she’ll come around, just going through a bit of an adjustment period. There’ll be some potty training accidents and probably a few sleepless nights while she cries as we crate-train her, but all in all an amazing thing.

Dogs bring so much love into a house. My three tough guys (my teenage sons) who don’t show emotion smother the dogs with love and shmoopy talk. The other day I was reading a book on the couch, it was raining outside. I had Sammy at the end of the couch by me and the new puppy sleeping on my chest as I listened to the rain beat down on the roof. If there’s a heaven then I got a glimpse of it that afternoon.



  1. I think you did get heaven on earth at that moment. I would love to adopt a brother or sister for my papillion (Papi). Your sweet story urges me to do it soon. I hope I find love at first sight too…Enjoy your new baby.
