Introducing Sandra Day O'Thompson


(We call her "Sandy" for short). I've been waiting for months expecting Charisse's next post to be about Sandy. I'm starting to think that Charisse might be a little jealous...It might be because Sandy likes to hold my hand with her paw...Or it could be our long walks as the sun is setting. Charisse, don't worry baby...She means nothing to me...She's just a dog!

Anyway, we adopted Sandy in March from a family in Highland. It was kind of awkward when Rafe and I stopped in to pick her up. Apparently, the family's eight year-old daughter did not concur with the decision to put her up for adoption. She initially started whining a little and then it turned into an all out tantrum with screaming and wailing. Meanwhile, Rafe and I were just there looking like the worst two guys in the world as we put her in the back of the truck and drove away.

Well, now I can see why she was upset. Turns out Sandy is a great dog. She likes to fetch, she is great with Easton and she is very obedient. (Unlike my old dog "Goose" who was difficult to tame due to his insatiable appetite for affairs with any female dog in the greater Highland area). Rest in peace Goose...One day the Chinese will pay for poisoning you.
I digress. Welcome to the family Sandy. Just watch your back. Who knows what Charisse will do if she sees you licking my face.

VERY funny post. Nice to hear from you Clint. I personally think all you 'dog people' are crazy. Aren't kids enough of a hassle?

Very cute. Haahaahaa! I feel for you Charisse. My dog likes my hubby more than me and I do think my hubby likes to spend more time with her. Cute dog, and I'm so glad she's good with Easton.
