so in the last post i ended it with the sentence, "it's kind of weird that i had a dream about a dog on friday morning because..." and now i can finish it. it's kind of weird that i had a dream about a dog on friday morning because on saturday we adopted one!
there's a new man in my life.
that's right, there's a new man in my life. he's young and quite handsome. he has thick, shiny, jet black hair that i love to run my fingers through. he has muscular shoulders and a strong build, so i know he'll always protect me should it come to that. he loves to snuggle and just likes relaxing, but can be playful if i want. his kisses are sweet, his voice is deep, and i think i'm in love. and guess what, chris doesn't mind at all! so i want to introduce you to the new man in my life...
i'm pleased to introduce you to kona, the black lab. he's a bed hog and a lap dog, and we love him. for the last few weeks, i've been sending chris links to labs or lab mixes at the humane society, but he hasn't really given me much of a response. on thursday, i looked at the humane society page for a neighboring county and found that they were providing a temporary home for this handsome guy. i sent the link to chris, and on friday afternoon, he drove the 30+ minutes to go meet this dog. we'd been hoping to find some breed or mix of retriever that would be a good fit for us and for flojo (who, unfortunately, is not scared of dogs and likes to bully them). kona's personality is great, and when we went on saturday morning to meet him, we knew he would be the perfect companion. he's a year and a half old which means he's out of the bad puppy stage, but will still play when it's appropriate. he's already housetrained, so the only thing now is getting him used to eating regular dog chow without gravy (otherwise he sniffs it and walks away). what a diva!
the ladies at the humane society told us that kona (he was actually called shadow, but we decided to change his name to kona, and he seems to like it) liked blankets and beds, and they were so right. he basically pushed chris and i out of the bed last night, so we'll have to teach him to sleep on the floor since he's a big boy. and even though he's a tough dog, he still likes his pink sparkly blanket...he doesn't have to know it's girly!
