Welcome Home, Brownie!


So…when McKenna was 3 years old, she asked her daddy for a dog. Seeing as we had 3 children under the age of 3 at the time, Mommy could not even conceive of the idea of adding something else that needed to be taken care of. So McKenna says, “Daddy, when can I have a dog?”. Alan replies, “Maybe one day when you’re older.” McKenna persisits, “How old do I have to be?”. Alan concedes, “Maybe one day when you’re about 7.”. Well, needless to say, this child has been talking about the dog she is getting when she turns 7 for four full years now!!! …and here we are…McKenna will be 7 in a few weeks.

We proceeded to research and finally purchased our newest addition, Brownie! She is a beautiful little Dachshire (a dachshund/yorkshire mix) and weighs about 1 pound! She is settled at home in her crate and is sleeping on her bed. Of course, the girls are just smitten.

The following picture is of Brownie while we shopped at Pets Mart today for food, etc…this picture does not do her justice, so I’ll post some more after she wakes up later!

Are we really ready for this?!
