Some girls have baby-envy. Some young couples, when they’re out and about, check out babies and toddlers and talk about when they’ll have their own.
I have puppy envy. Peter and I point out other people’s dogs to each other and discuss the day when we’ll have our own dog. It’s close but it’s not quite here. We both had dogs as kids and have always known a dog would eventually be a part of our family. For now though, we make do with a dog as part of our extended family.
Last night we met Bella, Peter’s parents’ new puppy.
How fricking cute is she? Bella is a Springer Spaniel/Chocolate Lab cross (aka: a Labradinger).
Look how happy I am to be near a dog!
And then she fell asleep.
