Family

Puppy Love

I haven’t had much time for blogging lately. All the packing, unpacking and cleaning involved with moving, and the normal stuff of daily life – soccer practices and games, choir practice and concert, diving lessons, homework, and on and on and on – and the detailed work of organizing children’s ministry and preparing a Mother’s Day message  —– all of that has kept me insanely busy the past couple weeks.

And then yesterday, this adorable little guy popped up.

He was wandering our neighborhood and hasn’t been claimed by anyone, and my entire family fell in love with him. So I bought some Puppy Chow and a leash and some doggie toys. And today, I spent most of my day taking him outside to try to potty or tossing tennis balls across the back yard in the rain.

And I’m Ok with losing this battle. Because, really – look at him.
