So there is going to be a new addition to the family soon. No, Meghan is not pregnant. LOL. Is that what you thought?
It looks like it was inevitable, but we are getting a dog. We have been kicking around the idea for quite a while. It was being talked about before we bought the house. Now that we have the house, now comes the dog.
We are going to be getting a Boston Terrier.
The AKC explains the breed like this. The Boston Terrier is a lively, highly
intelligent, smooth coated, short-headed, compactly built, short-tailed, well
balanced dog, brindle, seal or black in color and evenly marked with white. The head is in proportion to the size of the dog and the expression indicates a high degree of intelligence.
The body is rather short and well knit, the limbs strong and neatly turned, the tail is short and no feature is so prominent that the dog appears badly proportioned. The dog conveys an impression of determination, strength and activity, with style of a high order; carriage easy and graceful. A proportionate combination of “Color and White Markings” is a particularly distinctive feature of a representative specimen.
So basically, it looks like a domino and if trained well, it can be pretty
smart. The last thing I want is a dumb dog!
We are going to look at one Sunday and if all goes well, we will be bringing
it home tomorrow afternoon. We went out today and got the crate, a bed, bowls, some toys and food. “The doggie starter kit”. There will be more, but that is enough to get us started.
