We got a new dog! He is not an english bulldog like the dog that he tried to adopt a few months ago. We ended up getting a border collie. He is black and white and really sweet. It has taken him a few days to get comfortable but he is adapting very well. He has been a ton of fun and we are enjoying him. Plus, the good thing about him is that he is adaptable to our lifestyle. We can take him swimming in the river, camping, hiking, and out to the park. Another bonus is that when he gets older he can go running with me. I don't run outside at night because we live outside of town and so he will offer a little more comfort on those late runs. And when P goes out of town, or works late, he will provide me with an added feeling of security. Or, if we are gone all day, he can stay in the house and we don't have to leave the a/c on all day because he is able to stand the heat, where as our bull dog could not stay out longer than 20 minutes, he would not be able to go outdoors or do many of the things that P and I do. So even though I was sad when we gave him back to the shelter, I know that it was for the best. And, if we did not give him back we would not have gotten our new little guy, Tugg.
