Introducing our Robin Sparkles!!!

I honestly can't get how tiny she was when we first got her!  This was Saturday morning and Lily was just enthralled in watching her new buddy taking a nap.  I'm so thankful that these two pals get a long as well as they do.

This picture of Lily and Robin was taken a little later on Saturday while Robin was on her potty break outside.  This is a picture of Robin reaching up to give Lil a kiss on her nose.  This moment darn near melted our hearts as we watched this sweet moment.

Well despite me not being able to get her face in this picture, this shot is probably one of my favorite shots that I have of her so far!  This was taken on a very rare moment where she actually sat still for a second or two.  This collar that I got from our local pet store is AMAZING and I'm so happy that I was able to pick it up for her.  I'm not exactly sure if I'll be able to if I'll be able to get this exact collar for her once she gets bigger so I'm going to enjoy it on her while I can! 

Well that's the few pictures that I have ready to share with y'all right now but I will be back later to share more.  I'm so happy that Robin is doing better and we all look forward to growing with her and Lily together.

Be blessed and have a wonderful day!!!

Our Robin Sparkles Is Home!

Not once in my wildest dreams did I ever think that we would ever bring another pup into our lives this soon!  I mean, we just got Lily Sue last year and had to adapt to her, and then we moved and now we're all adapting to that, and after all that we added yet another little pup into our little family.

Please let me continue to entry by saying good evening and welcome to my blog!  Due to life being what it is, I'm not able to get here nearly as often as I used to, or would like, so to be able to sit at my computer desk with Robin is quite a delight to say the least.  But let me go ahead and get to the point of this entry who just so happens to be little Miss Robin.

As a family we already knew that we wanted to add another dog into the mix that way Lily Sue could have someone to play with, but we wanted to wait a while until my youngest was a little bit older and also wanted to wait until we were a little more settled into our home.

So with all that in mind we were pretty content with our family just as it was.  Now I'm not going to lie.  Every now and then I would check our local shelters and would scan craigslist just to see what dogs were out there, but I never looked with the sole intent on finding a dog just as I did with Lil.

With all that in mind I'm going to briefly about the events that happened a few days ago on how we came to know Robin.  It was a regular non eventful Thursday morning I got a message from a friend that there was a pocket pit that needed out of a shelter ASAP, and since she knew how we loved this breed she wanted to share this info with us.  She also knew that we were, one day in the far off future, looking for a dog to add to our family so she thought that it would be a perfect fit. Despite our plans on waiting to add another dog into our life, after looking the beautiful girl's picture and video we fell in love with her and planned on taking her home.

So after speaking with a volunteer I was able to put a tag on the dog next day, which was Friday, and wasted no time getting there since she was running out of time.  Before we left for the shelter the volunteer had let me know that the dog was aggressive towards most females but was pretty much okay with males.  Learning this made me have my heart on guard so I didn't want to completely get my hopes up but I still in fact wanted to have hope for the best, so we loaded our kids and Lily Sue up in the car so we could go meet this potential new family member of ours.

Well the meet and greet with Lil and Carly did not go well at all and we sadly had to say no to taking her home but with the help of another person that works at the shelter we found and adopted Robin!!  I can honestly say that she's the first pup that picked us, as compared to us picking her.  She's this beautiful little ball of delight and I couldn't be any more happier with her, and I'm also happy to say that Lily Sue has made a sweet life long friend.  All she wants to do is play with her!

I can't put pictures of her up now but will do so as soon as I can but yes this is my long entry of how we got our Robin Sparkles!

The name comes from a favorite show of ours by the way.  :-D
