After all that - here is the reason I do want a dog:
These are pictures of Adam with our dog Ashley and Ashley's boyfriend Spencer. Adam was about 2 years old in these pictures. I love the joy on his face in the first picture. Both Ashley and Spencer have passed away, and there are some days I miss our sweet Ashley. She was the perfect dog for us!! I'm glad that Adam got to spend a little bit of time with her.
Boys and dogs just go together! Jackson has LOVED having Dixie at our house. His face lights up everytime he sees her. Adam has loved it as well (except for the poop part). He has feed her every morning and night, wants to take her on walks and plays with her all the time.
So, maybe one day we'll get a dog again. Maybe in a few years....
