A New Running Partner?!

Yesterday my boyfriend called me up and asked me to come over to his apartment. When I got there, I got a huge surprise. He bought us our first dog! Mr. Perfect had been volunteering all day at the humane society and decided he couldn't leave one of the puppies behind. 

I was totally surprised and a little panicked at first. We wanted to get a dog one day, but we're both very busy and on tight budgets, so now didn't seem like a practical time. But after meeting our new puppy Champ, I couldn't help but fall in love. He's a total sweetheart and I know he will be spoiled rotten by us!

Champ is 5 months old and a terrier/collie mix. He's taking a little getting used to because I've always had small dogs (my family dog is a pomeranian), but I think I'm starting to get the hang of things. Today we went on our first walk together at the park and Champ had a ball. I think he will be a great running buddy when he's older!


  1. How CUTE! I think adopting a dog is the best way to go! :0) I cannot go to Pets Mart and animal events without walking away with tears in my eyes. I have to avoid them cause I want every dog! LOL I have 2 at the moment and 3 would be too much for us. Your new puppy looks like a sweet heart!

  2. Thanks Karen!! I know what you mean. I can't go to the shelter without ending up in tears, so that's why I was so easily surprised when my BF was the one to cave! haha
