We have been toying with the idea of getting a dog for the kids for a few years now but wanted to wait until they were old enough to understand the responsibility that comes along with owning a pet. We finally decided it was time! The kids are 11, 10 and 6 and are ready!
We headed to the Lost Dogs Home in North Melbourne yesterday because we decided that
we wanted to rescue a doggie rather than buy a puppy!
When we saw Boomer, the kids all agreed at once that he was the one! So quiet and placid yet so excited to see us!
The lady at the Lost Dogs Home got Boomer out of his cage so the kids could get to know him. They all fell
in love with him instantly!
That was it, there was no other doggie for them!
So happy to be taking Boomer home!
Boomer loved the car ride home! When we got home the kids wanted to take him straight over to the park for a walk, lucky for us (and Boomer), it's just across the street!
How could anyone resist those big brown puppy dog eyes?
Boomer is loving life here with us. It's like we've always had him. He has adapted to life with us and is so comfortable with the kids, even when they all fuss over him. We are all in love!
