We have a new DOG in the house

For those of you that know our family well, you read the title of this post and said,

"WHAT?!?!?! How in the world did you convince Paul to get a dog?"

Because you see, I've been trying to convince Paul to get a dog for a couple of years now.  Ever since our sweet Zoey passed away.  And the answer is always a resounding, NO!!  
But when I called Paul the other night from the pet store and asked him if I could bring this little guy home to our family, I wasn't met with too much opposition.

That's probably because





Yep, that's right.  We got a fish.  And Alexa named him "Dog".   It's quite confusing really and I think we are going to start calling him "Doug" instead.  But if Alexa would've named him "Doug" to start with this blog post wouldn't have been as much fun.  

In case you were wondering, fish are not nearly as good of pets as dogs are.  So....I will keep trying to convince Paul to get a dog - the furry kind that bark.

  1. Eli wants a dog but I told him he couldn't have one because they poop and pee. The other day, he came into the room and said, "We can get a fish because they don't poop!" So ... we might be following in your footsteps! Except he wants to name it Zoom Zoom???!!!
