Yesterday started out like any other Saturday. I had some errands to run, the first being a trip to uptown Charlotte in search of a camera flash. I asked my neighbor, Sonja if she wanted to tag along…secretly hoping we might end up eating at Sahara, which is in Rock Hill, SC. After 3 failed GPS attempts to find Biggs Camera, I just figured it was God’s way of telling me I didn’t need to get the flash that day. So we decided to try and find a place in Rock Hill, which of course I knew wouldn’t happen, but we’d be near Sahara. Imagine that. So we had some lunch and headed back towards NC to run some more errands. I had forgotten to get Bela’s dog food the day before so we hit PetSmart in Rock Hill. As soon as we got out of the car I said, “Oh great…it’s a Saturday at PetSmart.” Anyone who is a frequent shopper there knows that Saturdays are the days when they have tons of kitties and puppies for sale. Reluctantly, we entered the store making a V-line to where the animals were held. Instead, we found a couple with puppies and dogs in 2 shopping carts. Apparently their animals were being evicted from their house. I picked up one of the puppies, an English bulldog/bassett hound mix. Seriously?! Andy had been wanting a bulldog for months, and his bassett hound from college lives with his parents. All I did was send Andy a picture of the puppy, and he drove down to Rock Hill to see her. The rest is history. We now are a 2 dog/2 cat family. I left Saturday morning for a camera flash and came home with a puppy. Meet Sam!
Bela has spent most of the time pouting and just staring at Sam. I don’t think it’s hit her that she’s hear to stay.
