You heard me.
No, not another kid.
A large, black-and-brown German Shepherd cross named Jet, to be exact.
He's wonderful. I'm smitten. So is he.
We decided a few weeks ago that we'd get a dog, and I've been religiously checking Petfinder to see what the local SPCAs and shelters have. We found this guy on Saturday, went to see him on Sunday, and adopted him on Monday. I'm sure that he's the right dog for our family because we were second in line to adopt him, and in competition for that spot with another potential adopter. The first adoption fell through and we were picked over the other guys. I was literally bouncing up and down, I was so excited. He was a stray up north but he was definitely well-trained, as he responds very well to commands, walks reasonably well on a leash, and is very considerate. He does have an issue with men, though, so we think that he was abused. :( But he's a wonderful dog, and I can't wait to get to know him better!
