Allow me to introduce to you our newest family member, Finnegan. He has, without a doubt, introduced us to what it is like to have a puppy join the family.
In the short time he has been with us, he has already brought us so much joy and has taught us so many lessons (Don’t leave the bathroom door open, don’t leave papers that you would like to see again within his reach, etc.) It has been a wonderful experience and so much fun, that I cannot even begin to describe.
I won’t even begin to talk about how many pet adoption websites that I browsed and called and applied to adopt dogs. I finally came across a breeder that had him listed for a cheaper price than most of the adoption places I had contacted! He was 4 months old at the time, and we drove 4 hours to Canton, Ohio to pick up our boy.
I would make that drive a thousand more times.
The cats, well, let’s just say they are still warming up…three months later. I feel for Finnegan. You can see the love in his eyes every time he sees Felix or Pumpkin, but they will have absolutely nothing to do with him. They are warming up to him, but it is an ongoing process.
No matter how the cats feel, we love having Finnegan in our home. But no worries, the cats still get PLENTY of attention, when they want, of course.
