I am a woman of my word.
At the end of my previous post, Saving Skittle, I mentioned that J and I were going to adopt a dog. And we did. On Sunday, we brought home our already-beloved Chihuahua mix, Charlie.
It’s only been 3 days – so I know the honeymoon has just begun – but Charlie has already proven such a benefit in our mental and physical well being. I have woken up early the past three days to take him for his morning walk, and I don’t know if it’s the excitement of having Charlie, or there is something to waking up early and going for a walk with Master Wigglesworth (as we have also dubbed him) because I have felt great these past few days. I haven’t felt sleepy during the day and I have had more energy the past few evenings when I get home.
And J and I both love that having Charlie will mean the two of us spending more time together – walks, dog parks, adventures, etc… will now become part of our daily routine. So we are happy. Excited and happy. Now, if only we can get him fully potty-trained…
