Happy Wednesday everyone!
Yesterday, my mom emailed me a picture of a boxer that is currently waiting to be adopted at our local animal rescue league. As many of you know, Chris and I have been tossing around the idea of adding a “big” dog to our family. (Stewie will still remain our “little guy.”) Once I saw this boxer’s picture, I knew I had to pay him a visit.
First of all, the animal shelter is officially the saddest place in all the land. I about broke down into sobs. It’s so sad that they’re are so many well-behaved and adorable dogs that are abandoned and need good homes. I’ve talked about this on here before, but… rescue, rescue, rescue! The dog knows what you’ve done for it and will love you even more! Okay, I’m getting sidetracked…
Anyway, I found Crosby amongst the rest of the barking dogs and he was just quietly sitting in his kennel… no barking, no jumping. I asked an employee if I could take him outside, and he was such a good boy… very docile!
Chris is planning on taking Stewie up to the shelter to meet Crosby tomorrow (they were closed today). I have conferences after school until 5:30PM, but who knows, I might come home to an extra pooch!
I tried to snap a few photos of him, but he wasn’t feeling the camera.
I’ll be sure to update you all and let you know if he becomes a family member! Of course, Stewie rules all, so if they don’t jive then it’s a no-go… we’ll see.
Now, a few What I Ate Wednesday photos (thanks to Jen at Peas and Crayons for hosting the link-up).
Is the combination of blackberries and peanut butter weird? Regardless, it tasted good!
Lunch – Leftover baked Caesar chicken + a (unpictured) blood orange Chobani
I enjoyed this chicken recipe so much when I made it last week that I had it again for dinner Tuesday night. It makes for very yummy leftovers.
Snack – Banana + ICE
I love the pomegranate-blueberry flavor!
Dinner – Baked penne
I made a few changes to the original recipe, but it was the same idea. I was so hungry when I got home from work – at 3:50PM – that I just decided to get started on dinner. Since this takes a little while to prepare/bake, I was all set to eat at 5 o’clock on the dot!
I still need to scrounge up some dessert. 😉
Dog owners – 1 or 2+? Any benefit or downside to getting a second dog?
