But, this time it's a non-human, a four legged friend. His name is Sparkee. He is about a year old and really is the sweetest dog. We adopted him through Last Hope K-9 Rescue. The process was great and I would recommend them to anyone looking to adopt a dog. We had to be specific with the breed because E and I both have allergies to fur. Sparkee is part Schnauzer, and considered to be a hypoallergenic dog.
We drove to meet him and bring him home this past Sunday. Both Little Miss and E love him, but E is especially fond of his new pal. He has been getting up in the morning, walking and feeding him before school. I'm hoping the novelty doesn't wear off too soon.
Sparkee is spunky, playful and cuddly, much like a certain 10 year old in this house.
Welcome to the family Sparkee.
