7 Years With Our Jen Pup

February 5th marked 7 years with our sweet Jenny girl! How we have had this amazing animal for 7 whole years is beyond me. We just love her so much. I probably look at Jenny and say "you da real MVP" three times a day. She really is. She is so good with her kid brother. She is so patient when I can't take her on walks because it's too cold for the baby. She doesn't ever get jealous of all the time we devote to the baby that was once devoted to her. She is just happy to be included. We love that brown dog!
 
Since it's her adoptiversary, I thought I would reminisce on that sweet day 7 years ago that she made us a family.

Side note: As I am typing this, Parker is in the next room and just said "I love this dog. She is so good". So yeah, I guess we love our dog ;)


Anyway...

February 5th, 2011 was a Saturday. Parker and I were engaged and living in College Station, TX, and we went to Petco to see the puppies up for adoption. There was a rescue group that did weekly adoption events there, and we liked to visit and pet the pups. We were excited to adopt a dog as soon as we were married in June!

We started petting the dogs, and Parker found Jenny. She was 6 months old and the cutest, sweetest thing. We took her for a walk around the parking lot and started talking names. We just knew she had to be ours. We both liked the name Lucy, but Parker's uncle had a dog named Lucy (I have no idea why this mattered seeing as we lived in different cities and our dogs would never meet), so I suggested Jenny, and that was that. 

We paid her adoption fee, filled out the paperwork, and she came to live with me and my roommates in my apartment since Parker and I wouldn't live together for 4 more months. We were over the moon obsessed with that dog, and not much has changed. 

I have always called Jenny my best girlfriend, and she really is. She got me through deployment. She was a shoulder to cry on when I lost our first baby. She has just been with me through everything. Parker and I hate that she is getting older, but we are so blessed with another year with our sweet brown dog!





And here is my little PSA because I can't help it... if you are in the market for a furry companion, please adopt! :) :) :)

Awww :) she's so cute! Definitely a big fan of adopting! I don't know what I'd do without my two fuzzy loves :)

I love Lily, but I'm not sure how she would get along with a baby! Lily doesn't like kids... or people that aren't me and Andy! :'(

Non pet owners just don't understand the love of a dog. You love them and they love you. They really are able to be there for you in ways humans sometimes can't be.

You can never replace the love of a pet! Jenny is such a wonderful part of your family! :)
