the exterior remodeling project was finished, the weather was still nice, summer sports were winding down and winter sports were a ways off yet. the time to get a puppy was now or never.
so i scoured craiglist, petfinder, the animal humane society, etc. for my new dog(s). i came across the sad story of one rescue puppy named peanut, thought she looked pretty cute in the photos, and e-mailed about her.
as luck would have it, she would be at a petco across town on saturday the 20th. i told my mom about it, and she promptly came over to ride along for the puppy meet-n-greet.
i came home with a sweet puppy named peanut.
