The Newest Member of our Family!!

So, it's almost my birthday, and Justin and I decided it would be ok to have a chinchilla! We looked online and found a bunch of people that were selling theirs, but not many people were selling all the stuff that you have to have with them, like the dust bath and food and a big enough cage. So we went to Petco to look at cages and food and see how much it would really cost. While we were there, there was a lady with a rescue/adoption organization and she had lots of puppies! So naturally, I had to play with them! There were about 8 puppies in the little room and they were all so cute! We started talking to the lady and she said that when they're in town they have different families be foster parents for a night and bring it back the next day, so that the dogs get socialized and start training and stuff like that. Anyway, we decided we probably couldn't keep a puppy, since we had already tried that once before... (that's another story!)... but we could foster for a night!
So, Justin picked out this sweet little Australian Shepard/ Beagle mix that was light brown with white paws. Adorable! She was the only one that wasn't spazzing with all the people. haha. And for some reason Justin likes Australian Shepards. So we brought her home! She played with everyone that was there for a while and then just chilled with everyone! And she went to the door and sat down when she had to go to the bathroom. She was crazy obedient too! She liked our shoes but as soon as we told her to put it down, she would! It was crazy how chill and trained and obedient she was at only 5 months! So that night we put her in her kennel to sleep and she whined like twice and then went to sleep! We were in shock! ha.
The best thing about her was that she loved me so much! haha. No but really... I cooked breakfast and she sat at my feet on the kitchen floor and watched me. And then when i was getting ready she sat on the floor and slept by my feet! It was so freaking adorable. Major Ego boost! I loved it! haha.
So, we decided that we couldn't give her back, so we decided to KEEP HER! YAY!!!!! I finally have my puppy!! So, more pics and more stories to come, but here's my baby!! Look forward to new stuff!! :D

Love, your favorite sister in law :)

Hello! :)

It's Jessie's sister in law, Heather. I want everyone to know how much I love Jessie! She is the best friend anyone could ever have. I'm so glad that I married into her family and got the chance to get to know her so well. She is beautiful, and fun, and reliable, and everything else that's good in the world! I always know that I can count on her if I ever need anything.

I love you Jess!
