We adopted Lakelyn last year, right before we moved into the house. Kole and I visited her often at the shelter before choosing to adopt her. At the time, she was 3.5 years old. It seemed as though puppies and younger dogs were getting adopted left and right, but poor old Lakelyn remained. We brought her home the day after we moved into the house and the day before we found out we were pregnant. Talk about a lot to digest in a few days!
She has adjusted wonderfully. Thankfully she was already housebroken and respected being loose on the property. She goes running often and always returns home to sleep on the floor at the foot of our bed each night. She loves Kole and Jenna. She even likes the cats! We are hopeful she will be kind around our future chicken flock.
And I fully believe a house is not a home without a dog :-)
Nothing says spring to me like all the beautiful blossoms on the trees. From the red bud blossoms I posted about yesterday to these apple blossoms, I adore them.
This little tree is beside our driveway. We got some apples off it two years ago, but they got destroyed last year during the derecho. Since it's been there a while, we think it's some sort of older variety of apple :-)
