A New Addition

Hey everyone! So I recently went on a trip to New York and I went hiking at the Gorge in Kentucky, but I am going to leave that for the next posts. This post, will be another short and sweet one. Very sweet. I have always wanted a puppy. A dog that was my very own, that I picked out and that I took care of. I tried this initially when I was in the seventh grade when my mom finally caved and allowed me to pick out a puppy. While I loved my Shih Tzu, Molly,  I shirked my puppy watching duties only after a month or two of having her. I let my mom take care of her and only took charge of playing with Molly or taking her on the occasional walk. When Molly passed I was heart broken. Ever since then, I have been wanting a dog that I could really say was MY dog.

When I moved out and bought my house I told myself, this was it. I could get a dog. I immediately realized that with bills, a full time job and a somewhat carefree lifestyle (Going out to bars on weekends then sleeping in late) that this wasn’t fair to a dog. It wasn’t until recently that I realized that those things (While they are fun) are not my priority anymore. I also am now able to bring a dog into work as well, so it was an added incentive.


I’m happy to report that my boyfriend and I have rescued a dog and named her, Murphy Brown. Yes, we do love the late 80’s/90’s. She is a Boxer/Terrier mix and she’s a handful, but we love her. We rescued her from Animal Friends Human Society a couple weeks ago, and we have been training and loving this pup ever since. I can not express how amazing rescuing a dog is. I know that rescuing an animal gets talked about a lot and how you’re saving an animal and such; but quite honestly it’s the smart option. Murphy came spayed, up to date on her shots, she’s microchipped, we got a free month of pet health insurance, a  bag of kibble and a vet check up. That’s smart people. Pets are RIDICULOUSLY expensive. This is the somewhat cheaper and smarter route. Plus their foster homes usually know of the pet’s demeanor and they can let you know what their personality is like from the get go. We love our puppy, despite the lack of sleep and the now somewhat hectic household. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
