Our First Dog

We have a story....Clay wanted a dog. He's wanted a dog for over two years. Every day I hear...I wish I had a dog. Honestly, every day. I'm NOT exaggerating! Everyday. Finally he wore me down. He is his father's child. I was the final hold-out. I did not want another eating, breathing, pooping being in my house.

We had a friend who had talked to us about giving us one of their dogs because they had 3. They decided they couldn't part with their little Friday I took Clay to the mobile adoption unit to look at dogs. He was grinning from ear to ear. We looked at 3 different animal shelters & ended up choosing the first dog we saw from the first mobile unit. A lab pit mix we think.

He's the best dog. Very sweet. Has only barked once...a big deep Whoof! He's house trained! Sits! And is very well mannered! He is the best dog....he's wonderful. Clay gave him his name: Drake Remington!

Clay chose an orange collar for him. It looks beautiful with his brown coat!
