Hey friends I’m back with another Pet Friday but first I want to announce the winner of last week’s camera giveaway. So if your name is Natalie, then please check your email because you won.
Today I have a sweet and talented blogger for you who lives actually not too far away from me but we have never met in person. I hope we can change that one day soon. Please meet Christina of Christina’s Adventures and her adorable doggy.
Hey Cuckoo 4 Design readers! I’m thrilled to be over here today sharing about my sweet little dog baby. The timing couldn’t be more perfect – we adopted Buckley 5 years ago this week!
My husband and I had been searching shelters for a few months without any luck. We just didn’t find “the one”. We thought we wanted a medium sized dog, but when this little 17 lb. lost dog just wanted to be held and cuddled by us at the shelter, we both knew he was coming home with us!
Adoption Day – April 19, 2010
Buckley quickly adapted to life in our little family, and he was absolutely our “dog baby” before we had “human babies” 🙂 He just loves cuddling in any pile of blankets and getting as close as he can be to us:
He had a pretty quiet existence until the summer of 2013 when we welcomed our son into the world. Poor Buckley wasn’t sure what to do about this new family member! In all honesty, it took him a while to adjust. He tends to be a pretty nervous dog. Just as he would get adjusted to our little guy, Isaac would begin a new developmental stage (scooting, crawling, standing, walking…).
They have (thankfully) finally figured out how to live life together. Buckley has quickly realized that Isaac is very willing to share his snacks, so that obviously makes him worth keeping around 😉
We began our latest adventure a few months ago – we are renovating a 1902 Victorian house into our “forever home”. Buckley comes along with us for every work day, and is a real help on the job:
Buckley and Isaac both have fallen in love with the new deep window sills in our “new” (old) house:
It’s bittersweet to sell our old house – we are so excited for the things to come, but we will certainly miss this house that we’ve put SO much work into! I think Buckley will miss this sunny window seat the most:
Adopting Buckley was one of the easiest and best decisions we ever made! We can’t imagine living life without him!
Such a sweet story once again and as always it melts my heart to see a rescue animal find a happy home. Buckley and Isaac together are so sweet. They look like best friends now.
Make sure to pay them a visit and have a great weekend.
