Exactly one year ago today, we adopted an adorable little dog named Louie.
Stella, our first "child," had seemed lonely...especially with the long hours Josh and I were working. So, after settling into our new house, we thought it would be the perfect time to add a second dog to the family.
We found Louie through the Havanese Rescue organization, and I'm so glad we made the choice to go the adoption route this time around.
These pictures were taken the day Louie arrived...
He wasn't quite sure what to think, but I was trying my best to butter him up with new toys.
Here is Stella checking out what she thought was just a visitor...little did she know he would be staying for good.
Luckily, they were fast friends.
Louie was very shy at first, but he quickly warmed up to me and Josh. Before too long, we couldn't imagine our lives without him.
It was especially gratifying to see how much fun Stella had with a permanent playmate. They love running around and wrestling...and they even "snuggle" every once in a while.
Louie is still very shy with new people, but he absolutely loves me and Josh.
He adores hanging out with his Dad...
...and he pretty much follows me around the house at all times.
"Mom, can I please get up on your lap?"
He has even become a TCU Horned Frog fan.
I think he has made himself at home :).
We love you, Louie!
