A very random day…

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.

Snow

Okay, so we didn’t get THAT much snow, but I thought this would be a great time for Bela to ‘make up’ with snow.  Last year when we lived in Gastonia we got 8 inches, and Bela refused to go to the bathroom in it.  Poor thing held it for 3 days.  Today was a totally different story.  Maybe it’s because she could still see some grass, but either way she had a good time 🙂

The animals…

I thought I’d take this time to introduce our animals 🙂

Leo has the ‘tude.

Izzy is a sweetie and puts up with Leo (his paw around her neck).

Bela gets two pictures because she’s either sleeping…

…or in your face 🙂

New puppy :)

No, no…not my new puppy.  My neighbor and good friend, Sonja just adopted a new puppy from an animal shelter.  Andy and I have 3 animals (2 cats and a dog), and all 3 were adopted from either a shelter or humane society.  This is something that I am VERY passionate about…so much that I cannot go into one unless I’m planning on taking an animal home.  There are so many abandoned animals out there (cue Sarah Mclachlan music), so if you know you or anyone you know is thinking about adding an animal to your family…think of shelters first 🙂

Look at the blue eye!

Gracie gets a bath!

Andy and I have been in Ohio for maybe 2 hours, and I’ve already whipped the camera out. I hope I don’t start annoying people…
