As I've mentioned in other posts, my husband and I adopted a terrier mix from a shelter a couple of months ago.

I feel that today we've reached a milestone with our little furkid. :) When we first brought Brownie home she showed little interest in the toys we bought her. But once she realized they were "hers" she started to play with them...she even tosses them around herself so she can go after them.

Well, today she was lying on the floor with a couple of her toys just really into playing and chewing...when I looked up from the computer one of the toys, a small stuffed canvas bone, had been reduced to a cloud of cotton innards. I had to smile, Brownie has destroyed her first toy!!!!!!!!

Kind of a goofy thing to get excited about, but as a very adoring new parent, it doesn't take a lot to get my excited over my pooch.

Hey hon....welcome to the club!!! Most of us here get excited over the "little" things our furkids do...but when you have a rescue dog that finally understands that he is in his forever home it is such a fabulous feeling....

Many hugs to you and little Brownie...

Hugs to Brownie -- sounds like she's adapting to her new family really well and is a very happy doggie!
