How My Life Changed Forever

Two years ago today, Jeff and I expanded our family. We adopted to CRAZY little puppies and our life completely changed.

We were in the market for a dog and we had been looking for a while. Someone we used to know, volunteered for a dog rescue company and let us know about this litter. Jeff surprised me one day at lunch letting me know that he had submitted paperwork for 2 puppies and that we were going to get to go meet them.

I remember that day so perfectly. There were 5 perfect little puppies, 3 boys and 2 girls. As soon as Jeff laid eyes on Hammond, he was in love. As soon as I laid eyes on Alfie, I was in love. These two were it, these are our boys! Hammond was the sick, little runt of the litter and had to be bottle fed, and I remember Alfie had ticks on him. They were taken away from their mother too young and transported here from New Mexico. Well traveled pups at only a couple of weeks old!

As soon as they turned 8 weeks, we could take them home! This day couldn't come soon enough either. I remember the day we picked them up and I was already shocked at how big they got. Originally, we were told they would probably be around 25 pounds. They are now approximately 50 each and still on the lean side.  

2 years ago, our lives changed forever. I am a doggie-mama now and I take this responsibility very seriously. These boys are my babies and I love them as if they are my own children (cuz they are!). I grew up in a home, where dogs were treated like family members, not "dogs." It's quite amazing how much they know, how they learn and how they interact. It has been a blast to be a part of this process. I can't believe they are 2 years old, it feels like yesterday that we brought them home!

Here are a few pics of Alfie:
