You may have seen my post last week, looking to re-home our dog Sophie. For those who don't know, we took in Sophie, 6 weeks ago, as a stray dog found in our backyard. We nursed her back to health, and thought it may be best to find her a new home. After much discussion as a family (and many tears), we decided to keep Sophie after-all! She is getting along so good with our other dog (they are BFF's) and absolutely adores us and the kids. She is learning what is expected of her, and actually fitting in very nicely. Now the down-side to this decision are in the things we need to do, in order to make this work-- some training, installing a high fence in the backyard, and not being able to take my eye off her, when loose in the house. It's like having a toddler all over again! Had to go through the same thing when we took in our other stray dog, Ginger, 6 years ago. And that turned out very well! So, here we go again :) Look at that face...how could we not?!
