Meet Winchester

I'd like to introduce you to Winchester (or Winnie, as I call him). He is a blue heeler/Australian shepherd mix that my husband and I have had a little over a week now!

Last week we made the 45 minute trek out to a local Twitter friend's home (Fun Fact: we bought our living room rug from her, too!) and picked up this cute little boy. J and I have been talking about getting a dog for months. We'd planned on adopting one from a shelter - I adopted my cat from a shelter in Dallas back in 2008 and I totally recommend adopting over buying - but this friend's dog wound up having lots of puppies about 9 weeks ago. So instead of going to a shelter, we decided to make one of those little cuties ours!

It's been a bit of an adjustment to say the least. This little puppy is wonderful. He's always super happy to see us, even if we just stepped inside for a minute. He is friendly and excited and pretty stinking cute.

He's learning some basic tricks like fetch right now. He's getting pretty good at it, unless he gets distracted by something shiny :)

Just look at that face, y'all. He's pretty awesome!
