Guess what? We adopted a dog on Sunday!  Both boys, but especially my nine year old, have been nagging to get a dog for months.  The time seemed right, so I started looking for a dog that would fit in well with us about a month ago.

Milo is a little over two years old and was living with a foster family because his original family either didn’t want him (crazy, right?) or wasn’t able to keep him for some reason.   His adoption was done through a local shelter and it must have been written in the stars because not only did he need a home, but we wanted a dog just like him!

He is a Chihuahua mix and his name is Milo.  We absolutely LOVE him and he totally fits right in here with us.




He hadn’t been here an hour and look at him all snuggled up with my nine year old!


It’s our first dog and we are so happy that we’re able to give him a good home.

  21. He’s so cute!! We just got a dog a few months ago. about 6 months actually. He is our first dog too, and it’s been quite an adjustment. But the kids just adore him.

  22. Oh how wonderful Robin! Milo is so dang cute. He looks almost identical to my sister’s Rat Terrier that they had for 16 yrs. His name was Rosco and he was so funny. He loved to run after a tennis ball in a panic run. He would not slow down ever. If you didn’t toss the ball again he would pick it up and toss it at you with his mouth and then bark once. I sure hope Milo is fun for your boys and that they have a life long bond with him.

  23. OMG! He is adorable!! I love his coloring – so unique and so stinkin cute!! I’m sure it was love at first site…..and I love how peaceful he is with your 9 year old. He seems so calm! Does he ever get hyper and run around like crazy?? 🙂

  56. «Louis» thanks you for your visit to his Wordless Wednesday post. It was actually quite brisk on that beach – not summer at all! The wind was clipping in off the Pacific at about 20 mph and the temperature was only about 50º – but the wind made it feel a lot colder! «Louis» was amazed that guy was in the water! The heated seats in the Vachemobile really felt good after taking this shot! 🙂

  58. Awwww, he is such a cutie! 🙂
