After visiting with the dogs at the special adoption event at Petsmart last weekend, the boys may have convinced me to get a dog. We checked on the internet for small dogs and discovered Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I thought they soundd like a good fit for us, but the pure breds were kind of pricey and we kind of wanted to support a rescue dog.
Then Scott found a spaniel/pekingnese mix near us whose owner didn't have time/space for an enthusiastic dog. We went down to meet him on Tuesday, and ended up getting him for a weekend visit Saturday.
On the way home we took him for a walk at Patriot Lake:
Ryan loves him and he seems to like us ok so far.
