Meet Walker.

So, if you didn't know Sean is very, very persistent. It's equally great and annoying. Maybe more annoying. For months, (or better yet, years!) Sean has been talking about getting a brother for Izabella. I was completely fine with Izy being an only dog-child but not Sean. He would be online searching for rescues in shelters everywhere for hours at a time. The location did not matter and he was willing to make the drive if there was potential for a dog to be a good fit for us.

The criteria was that the dog had to be a male pitbull (ever since we got Izabella we have a very big heart for pitbulls), good with dogs and cats since we have Fella our cat. Sean came close several times but then we'd get a call that the dog was adopted. Great for the dog, sad day for Sean.

To be honest, my heart wasn't in it 100% until we made a visit to the shelter. We found two dogs that we thought fit the bill and so we brought Izabella to meet both dogs. In the end, she chose the dog we would take home. No, seriously she did. We knew right away the dog she preferred and that's the dog we went with. I'm proud of my girl because she chose well! He's a great dog and is fitting in so nicely with us. He's rather stubborn but I feel with a little more time with us he'll know who the boss is in this house ;). Me of course! Ha.

Walker, I'm looking forward to the warmer months to take you to the beach and to Yappy Hour. We're so happy to have you be a part of our family. We hope that you love your new home and that you soon will love us. We promise to love you, take you on lots of walks, trips to the dog park, snuggle you constantly and feed you lots and lots of treats. ♥

What a handsome fella! It was the best decision for us when we got a pup "brother" for Chloe: she still gets stubborn with sharing us and having her space, but I know they enjoy each other's company at home and when we travel! Enjoy!!!

Two dogs!! And I won't even let my husband have one!! It's crazy how you didn't even consider yourself a dog person before and now you are pretty much are!! Very cool.

Awwww... he looks so sweet! My hubs is being pretty persistent about a dog (and he wants a Pit too)! I love dogs - but since we live in a condo, I'm not sure it's fair to have a bigger dog like that without a yard for it to run in. I may end up losing the battle though before it's over! :)

A new dog! Wow, congrats. I think it's awesome that Izy got to pick out her brother, too. Have a great weekend... :)

Kristen said...

Oh my gosh I love that Izy picked him. How cute!

Sammy would've preferred the single life, but well...Ryan had other ideas. ;) Thankfully Rory plowed her way into our lives, since otherwise, we might not have another dog.
