My plans for a restful and recharging April has lasted exactly one day. Yesterday brought an exciting new change to our lives at Shady Dame, Rob and I became parents.
Welcome Tally Ruscoe!
Tally is a 9-month old lab/terrier mix adopted from Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue in Kennesaw, GA. She is sweet, energetic and has stolen my heart. Rob has been wanting a dog for as long as I can remember, his most recent attempts at wearing me down got me to adoption day at Petsmart yesterday and once I met Tally, it was all over. We connected and there was no way I was going to leave her behind.
I know nothing about training a dog, I just downloaded and started reading this book which got great reviews
and we start our first obedience class this afternoon. So with proper training for both Tally and myself, I know that we will become great friends and fitness partners. Twice daily walks are going to benefit not only puppy health and training but the health and fitness of Rob and myself. Tally has already been around the neighborhood once and she's not even been here a whole day.
I'm a bit nervous, as any new dog parent is, and my kitchen smells a little like dog but Tally is right next to me and she has me grinning from ear to ear. Happy Sunday!
