As of this afternoon, I have been approved by all parties involved to adopt this lovable dog, Rascal.
Rascal is a sweet 6yo beagle mix (he's got a little rottweiler in him and maybe some hound too) that I will be picking up tomorrow from the shelter.
I've already gotten some things together for him - food, dishes, treats, a couple of chew toys, a place to sleep, etc. My sister-in-law is going to be making a blanket for him as a welcome home present. (She came with me over the weekend when I first met Rascal so she already knows how great he is.)
Sure, I'm a little nervous since I haven't had a dog since junior high and there will certainly be some adjustment for us both. But more than anything I'm just so excited to finally have a dog.
And I promise, I will post pictures of him in my photo gallery once he's home and I have a chance to take some.
