It’s Crazy How a Dog Changes Things

dogs change everything

A few days ago, we saved a dog at the shelter. Our lives immediately changed. Suddenly Chris and I had a life to take care of and love. We became fur parents! 

Both Chris and I have always grown up with pets in our lives. When we first moved in October it was really sad and depressing not having a little happy dog walking around (we couldn’t have any of the family pets, of course). We felt like something was missing from our lives. Finally, after waiting two months to get used to the responsibility of being homeowners we took the leap and went to the local shelter.

We adopted this little sweetie, named Batman. We tried working with the name Batman for an hour or so and ended up changing his name to Mustache, it suits him much more. He is part Schnauzer Miniature. They didn’t have info on what else he was mixed with but we are thinking some sort of Terrier. 

I have never smiled so much in my entire life. He is so sweet and loving. Every moment of the day is made brighter with him in it. Sure, the training is stressful, but the joy he has brought us has been worth it. 

Welcome to the family Mustache!

Do you have a pet? What’s his or her name?
