Our New Family Addition

We Got a Dog!!!!

We adopted our cute little rascal on Saturday from the Lost Paws Shelter....I was a little nervous after he lifted his leg on every shelf in PetSmart...but he still needs to be neutered and they say that will help with the Marking. But anyways, mike and i have been eyeing this dog for a few weeks, and so we went to the adoption on saturday and feel in love. We took him to the groomers to get a haircut and a bath (to try and get rid of that kennel smell). He has grown to love the doggy door and the backyard, and is starting to feel more comfortable in the house. We're really excited!! We take him on a long walk around the park each morning to help keep him exercised.
He is a PBGV or a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen. And...we decided to name him Griffin, after his heritage. I know it's not very creative, but it just seemed to fit him so well.

And...for those of you who weren't aware, our back yard used to be a slew of weeds and ugliness. Over labor day weekend, Mike and I decided it would be a good idea to till up the whole back yard and re-seed a lawn. About 4 hours into the ordeal, I was definitely regretting our decision, but now a month a later we are very happy.

This is a photo of our new beautiful lush lawn.... just in time for our new beautiful lush dog :)

Thanks for tuning in. Ina, I promise I'll have photos of the neighborhood soon.
