The New Life Of “Pi”

I’ll be completely honest in saying that I have been relentlessly hounding the Mister about a new puppy. I LOVE our two current dogs and cat and we are both on a LOT of rescues pages in our area. It just pulls at my heart strings seeing all those poor babies with no homes or someone to call their owner. There really is no love like that from a furry friend. Smile 

The problem is that while I want a kazillion pets, Mr. Knight is more practical in asking me where we are going to put all of these furry animals because, while we have a decent sized house with a pretty good yard, we do not live on a farm. Boo for Mr. Practical! I knew though, that if I kept chipping away eventually he would agree to getting another furry friend…as long as it barked.

So, Saturday morning we were drinking our morning coffee and perusing the rescue pages when we saw someone post that an Australian Shepherd puppy needed a new home as his owners could no longer take care of him due to an illness. Mr. Knight actually found it, and showed me the picture all the while saying, “This isn’t good,” because he has a soft spot for Aussies (and I had pretty much already won my battle at this point).

Long story short, he called the owner ASAP and we met to “interview” to adopt the puppy. The little guy is a GIANT ball of fur and energy which I know Hunter is excited about because he does love training puppies and he’s pretty good at it. Luckily for us, he is already house trained and crate trained and has already learned a lot of basic commands such as sit, etc.

The ONLY problem (ok, not the only) is that instead of getting our furry friends OUT of the bed (which we’ve been trying to do for a while now) we have instead added another pet TO the bed! I guess we will invest in a California King bed because with two adults, three 50 lb dogs, and a cat we are going to need it.

So, without further adieu I present Shepherd’s Pie Knight. He is 17 weeks old and has 1 1/2 blue eyes.
