The big reveal - Sophie, the newest member of our household

We bit the bullet, threw in the towel, waved the white flag, (insert cliche here). We got the boys (C being one of them) a dog.
Meet Sophie!
Family and friends, you probably need a moment to collect yourselves. I know this is a shocker.

...breath...

It's taking me a while to get used to the idea, too.

The decision wasn’t without years of discussion, consideration, begging, wailing and gnashing of teeth (mostly mine). I knew the time would come and this happens to be the right time.

Don’t get me wrong. I like dogs. I've liked your dogs....in your homes. I just never considered myself a dog person, at least not in my adult years.

So, for those who know me well, I’ve put together a list of the top 10 reasons I decided to get a dog.

10. I’m a sucker for cute faces (both dogs and boys).

9. They wore me down.

8. I believed them when they said they’ll take care of a dog.

7. It’s just a dog, not an elephant.

6. This was less painful than having another baby.

5. I’ve wanted another girl in the house.

4. I need a good listener.

3. I'm doing my part to dispel the stereotype that Asians don't like big dogs.

2. Come on, who can resist this face….


And the 1. Reason.....
My 13 year old trump card of C going to medical school and residency expires in a year. Now I can say, “but I let you get a dog!”
