My new best friend, Echo.
Just before Thanksgiving 2012, driving back from CT to VA, my boyfriend planned a ‘surprise’ stop, which I thought would be a place to get lunch. Major brownie points to the boyfriend for digging up a place to eat and setting up what was clearly going to be a lunch date…
After much driving through an area with very few restaurants, the surprise stop turned out to be a kennel. We had talked about getting a dog, in due time…
At the same time we were there, a gentleman brought in his GSD puppies for shots.
Try being in a tiny room full of adorably clumsy german shepherd puppies crawling all over you, and resisting the urge to take one home with you. Game over.
We brought Echo home and stepped into the deep end of the dog-ownership pool 🙂
After some obedience training, I am looking forward to taking her on some great runs, and sharing some great times with my best girl.
She has yet to grow into those humongous ears !!
