And Doggie Makes Three

I've wanted a dog for a long time. Unexpectedly, we found this three year old Border Terrier up for adoption last week. Even though we were planning to wait on adding a furry companion to our household until next spring, this was an opportunity we couldn't pass up.
We picked Griffin up this morning and he's adjusting just fine. It's amazing how calm and well-mannered he is for being a terrier. My terrier experience has consisted of bouncing Jack Russells until now!
Our big outing on Saturday was a walk to Irving Park and some time spent basking in the sun. Mr. Griff isn't great on a leash yet, but we'll work on that.
For now, I'm just enjoying having such a sweet and loving companion. Nothing beats seeing that tail wag when you come through the front door!
