This weekend was absolutely perfect. The weather, the food, and the cuddles.
When I moved to Little Rock, I knew Emily and I would spend a lot of time together, which is fine considering this place is definitely 'dog-friendly' and there are countless things to do with her. Hiking, swimming, dog parking.... the list goes on.
|"Stayyyyyyyy, stayyyyy...." she's getting good!|
I didn't take any pictures, because that may have come across as a creepy pet-detective wanting to save the world. I also was being jumped on, licked, and barked at.... nothing you guys want to see pictures of. I did however, race to the nearest tractor supply to get myself a pair of rain/dog park boots! Nothing says, "I belong here" like a dressing room selfie pic!
Why can't every boot be $20?! Maybe I should do more shopping at the tractor supply.....
After that investment, I drove home and thought about Em the entire way. I wanted nothing more but to give her a big hug and kiss and tell her that I love her. She may dig to China every time it rains, chew the hose to pieces, jump in the bath tub, destroy her toys, play in muddy puddles, chase the fedex man down the street, poop in the middle of the sidewalk, snore, bark at men, eat door stoppers, and only eat her food if there's turkey involved.... but this girl means the world to us. I couldn't imagine her being in a shelter begging for a home. I know I won't be able to give those babies as much love as I do with Emily, but I know I can give them a little bit of hope that there's a loving home out there for them too.
Don't let those eyes fool you. She's just wanting that piece of bacon you have in your hand.
