We Got a Dog!!!

Alexa has been asking for a dog for a LONG time now.  Paul kept saying, "No" and I truthfully didn't know that he would ever change his mind.  But, I came across a dog that needed a new home and the owners were willing to let us "babysit" her for a day to see if she was a good fit.  Somehow, Paul agreed to the visit and there was no turning back from there.

Her name is LeeLee (that was her name already and we didn't think we could change it) and she is a five-year-old poodle mix.  She doesn't shed at all and is very patient and gentle.   We didn't know it during our visit but she does have pretty bad separation anxiety and we're still working with her on that but other than that she has been a great addition to our family.  She's still warming up to Paul as it seems he must remind her of someone that wasn't very kind to her in the past but I have full confidence they'll be best buds soon.  

LeeLee really likes Grandpa Tom and jumps right into his lap every time she sees him.
