brace yourself for what i am about to say:
my parents got a dog.
i was shocked too!
it all started as a silly suggestion from my brother, two weeks ago, when he was perusing Facebook and saw a posting from (my new fave doggie group) Domesi-Pups stating: 6 yr old, Blue Merle, Rough-Coated Collie; Retired Therapy Dog; For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bro sent the link to my dad saying, “well, if you ever wanted a dog, this is probably your perfect option. 6-years-old, so no ‘puppy stage’, Domesti-Pups trained and sweet… what more could you ask?”
well, we had a collie growing up, she was so sweet (we had the same birthday!) and she lived for almost 13 years. it has now been 13 years since my parents have had a dog.
never, thought they would get a dog.
and i have heard plenty of times that AJ and I have two too many dogs. (to which, i do not agree)…
but sweet Neil, the retired therapy dog has found a way into their hearts, and i am excited for that.
Neil came home last night, and of course we stopped by with goodies. he’s the most docile dog i have ever met — hopefully Lucy and THOR can take some pointers from his demeanor!
oh, fun times for sure!!
